WxListCtrl edit second column

Post by burnertje » Wed Jun 04, 2008 6:28 am

Is it possible, when you have 2 columns, to edit the second column in a wxListCtrl?

so when you select an item, the first column you can edit very easy, but I can't get it to work to edit my second column.

I remember trying this a couple of years ago and it ws a real pain. There are a number of posts on the forum covering this topic. Basically for the first column an edit box is automatically provided for you. For any column after this you need to catch the mouse clicks and then provide an edit box in the correct position and then handle using this to edit the item.

In such a case, the best is to use wxGrid.
