Hi,

If you don't know how the layout or the sizers work, I'd suggest you try wxGlade and make it generate C++ code.

This is what I'm using for my wxWidgets project and it was quite helpful at the beginning when I didn't know how to build dialogs by code.

... or wxFormBuilder.

But i do suggest to spend time reading tutorials and the docs and the wiki, as using tools to relace missing knowledge doesn't take you very far

Well I think wxGlade is actually a very useful tool to learn how sizers work and to know which properties are available and how they affect the layout. If you know how to use wxGlade, eventually you'll find it easy to build dialogs by code.

But I agree that you still have to read the doc too.
