C++ Newbie, I want a wxTextValidator subclass, how?

Post by alaricljs » Fri Jun 24, 2005 6:11 pm

I would very much like to subclass wxTextValidator. Problem being I have no clue how. I have Stroustrup's book and Thinking in C++ by Bruce Eckel, they've not helped very much.

All I want to do is make string length a part of the validation process, it can't be that hard. I'd like minimum and maximum values, and I'd like to keep everything from wxTextValidator.

Any pointers to docs, direct assistance, really anything at all would be greatly appreciated.


Thanks.

Stupid stumbling block number 2:

Horrid error messages from your compiler lead you to believe you're clueless, when all you did was typo/drop punctuation.

That's right, a simple semi-colon at the end of the class {} is all I screwed up. Mind you Dev-C++ tells me I've got a new type definition as a return in response to that.


Weeeee!
