wxToolBar Bitmap Issue

Post by miclus » Fri Oct 23, 2009 3:52 am

Hi. When my toolbar starts out, it looks like this:


But, when I click a button and set its normal bitmap to another one of the same size, it looks like this:


It seems to have extended the grey to the right. Any ideas why?

Also, is there a way to get rid of the grey part underneath the buttons?

hi miclus,

seems there is a logic in this, the toolbar seems to resize all the buttons to new different size button.

void SetToolBitmapSize(const wxSize& size)

Sets the default size of each tool bitmap. The default bitmap size is 16 by 15 pixels.
I would solve this using bitmaps of the same 16x15 size, or setting the new size with SetToolBitmapSize.

In this way you should not see the gray part, or anyway, you can try wxTB_FLAT style.
