hi all,

i am looking for some help to get working what i think should be intended as a very common problem:
In a splash screen, often, the version string for the software version need to be showed.

So i tried a wxStaticText, but i cannot get the trasparent background, so i tried to connect OnPaint, to use DrawText, but this seems is not getting connected.

Any help is really appreciated.

Having struggled with this issue, I found out that using "wxPaintDC pdc(GetSplashWindow());" (instead of passing 'this') in OnPaint works well.
