Use wxGTK in Windows

Post by bloodlee » Fri Dec 05, 2008 3:16 am

Dear all,

I am very interesting about a question.
Can wxGTK be compiled in Windows with GTK+ developing package and Mingw?

If so, it may bring many benefits IMO. You can define your own gtkrc for different themes for GUI; You don't need to face the inconsistency in Windows and Linux.

I've found some results from Google. The answer is "NO". since wxGTK depends on X11.

Anybody make it work in Windows? I just want to make sure. :)
