wxFindReplaceDialog problem

Post by Ami » Fri Feb 23, 2007 10:04 am

I'm trying to implement find&replace operations in wxStyledTextCtrl but the wxFindReplaceDialog doesn't show. See this code:

Code: Select all

wxFindReplaceData findData;

void Editor::OnEditFind(wxCommandEvent& WXUNUSED(_event))
	wxFindReplaceDialog findDialog( GetAppFrame(), &findData, _("Find") );

When I call ShowModal() instead of Show() the dialog is shown but when I close it, the main window doesn't respond and the focus is given to window which doesn't belong to my program. I use wxWidgets 2.8.0 and VC++ 2005.

What's wrong with this code ? I would appreciate if anyone can provide some help.

Does GetAppFrame() really returns the parent windows address?

I'd ask the same. If you're interested in incremental find/replace panes for wxStyledTextCtrl (supporting regular expressions), I could post a cheap and cheerful wxPanel-derived solution that works with wxAUI.

It's very new and might be buggy (only released it yesterday), but seems to work ok so far.
