Advice on how to show information

Post by rrcn » Mon Jan 26, 2009 4:44 pm


I need advice on how to show information to the user.
As an example, to show information about a book I'd like to show the type of information like "title" on blue and the information of the book like the title name as black bellow.

I thought in using wxRichTextCtrl but this can be edited and it gives me a linker error when I use it, although I build it correctly. I don't know what is the problem with it.

the wxRichText library also depends on wxAdvanced, wxHTML, and wxXML libraries too, so if you aren't building a monolithic library (which your question implies you aren't), then you also need to link in those libraries. See this page for more info:
