wxWindow scrollbar questions

Post by Disch » Mon May 24, 2010 1:20 am

Hey everyone. I have a question about scroll bars. Specifically with wxWindow::SetScrollbar.

How can I find out the size of the scrollbar? For example the width of the vertical scrollbar will cut into the client area. How can I find out how wide it is?

The only thing I can think of would be to call GetClientSize() with scrollbars visible and invisible and find the difference. But ew. There's got to be a better way, right?

Thanks
