Here's my way (though there are probably better) // returns the applications directory, WITH a slash appended wxString GetAppDir() { #ifdef _WINDOWS wxStandardPathsBase& stdp = wxStandardPaths::Get(); wxString toRet = stdp.GetDataDir(); #else #error "Util::GetAppDir() has only been defined for windo...

Now it generates RSS, and its items seem to contain correct entries bun in description of the channel I find text "<description>Discussion forum for wxWidgets C++ / Python programming</description>" w...

Would be also nice if a questions icon would exist for viewed and not viewed. In other words, be different like they are in case of normal posts for example. Yea I noticed this too. I think there is a difference though. There is a little arrow icon (about 1mm^2) to the left of the topic title (not ...

I see this more as serving "the greater good" .. when I would write this, others would benefit from it. The tricky part of course is the ROI. Return on investment. What I put in it, would it be worth it, and would others use it? Ahh, the great open-source debate. :) We could discuss ROI for a while...

This is one thing I am going to persist. Only the estimate time scale is unknown as I have so many other things to do. I was just thinking about how long it would take to write something like this and if it was time-prohibitive. Then I realized, that if you spent the time getting this working (well...

Also, maybe try refreshing the whole board from cache it might be that you have an old copy .. That was a good idea. I cleared the cache and tried again, same results. I have the same problem Ahh I guess that probably confirms it. Thanks benedicte. 8) Jorgen, I think I may send you a new icon set f...

Hi Jorgen, Thank you for the screen shot. That was very kind of you. Rather than hang my head in shame though, I would instead hold to me previous assertion that these options are still not available to me. On my screen there are no such options. My guess would be this little block of php code would...

Hey Jorgen,

This sounds really cool. Sorry I am slow, but how do I post as a question instead of a normal post? (I can't find the link!) 8)

Thanks!

Hey Jorgen, This dilemma is certainly nothing new as you mentioned. Your particular example though reminds me a bit of Ruby On Rails ( http://www.rubyonrails.org/ ). Ruby on Rails did for PHP what you're thinking of doing for wx. I think you are right that GUI programming takes up a large time-consu...

Hey Jorgen,

Awesome! Thanks to upCASE for his hard work and also to you for installing it. I think this is really going to be a nice feature.

Now I'll have to go back to all my old questions and give credit to all those people who helped me. :D

When did you last look at Inno? They've had the "Modern UI" installer for a very long time now.
Indeed, but what's wrong with that? It's still more slick than the standard Inno. Unless Inno has updated since I last used them.
