Popup menu passing data

Postby amuts » Mon Jul 17, 2017 2:42 pm

I have problem, that google ,nor wxwiki , nor documentation of wxwidgets could provide any guidelines.

I need to generate popup menu on mouse down event, that alows user to select one of multiple objects to interact with.
Thus far, i can create popup menu, and using connect(...) , make it respond. But, i have no way to determine witch of the objects was chosen.
In wxwiki there was an example using setClinetData, that sets pointer, but in this case i do not have actual object to pass the pointer to

any suggestions ?

The easiest way to solve this is to use wxWindow::GetPopupMenuSelectionFromUser() as it's a modal call which only return after the user selected an entry. So you don't need any event handler or carry information about the clicked item around.

Use the source, Luke!
