There is no control for this. You have to make your own!

Draw your text on a bitmap using wxMemoryDC. In the controls sample you will find a complete code. It looks like

Code: Select all

    wxBitmap bitmap( 100, 100 );
    wxMemoryDC dc;
    dc.SelectObject( bitmap );
    dc.DrawEllipse(5, 5, 90, 90);
    dc.DrawText(_T("Bitmap"), 30, 40);
    dc.SelectObject( wxNullBitmap );

    (void)new wxBitmapButton(panel, ID_BITMAP_BTN, bitmap, wxPoint(100, 20));
Edit: Use wxDC::DrawBitmap to draw your own bitmap on the wxMemoryDC's bitmap.

You should never be using Bitmap Buttons with labels, especially if they do not add meaning to the buttons.
