I want a wxTextCtrl with a minimal width. It should only be possible to display 3 characters in it.

But I am not able to decrease the with that way.

Just example code

Code: Select all

wxTextCtrl* pCtrl = new wxTextCtrl(this, wxID_ANY);
wxSize size = pCtrl->GetSize();
size.SetWidth(20); // just 20 pixel for example
SetWidth() has no effect. Setting it to 1000 has no effect, too.

I want to modify the width of a wxTextCtrl. How can I do that?

Minimum means "This size or bigger". Try wxWindow::SetMaxSize.

I used SetMaxSize() but it is not possible to set the width less then the default width of a textctrl.

No, it doesn't seem to like it, does it.

SetClientSize() works for me, though; and it's closer to what you'd want anyway.

Only the combination of SetSize() and wxSizerFlags(0).FixedMinSize() has success.
