Crashes in "Window" menu, wxWidgets 2.9.1

Post by okurtsev » Mon Sep 27, 2010 12:37 pm

I've tried migration to 2.9.1, but with no luck yet because of crashes while pressing on any of automatically added by wxDocParentFrame "Window" menu items - "Cascade", "Tile Horizontally", etc. I've checked \samples\docview as well, it also crashes there.
I've been trying to find out any information about this crashes, but can't find any.
There were some other minor problems, could you please prompt me is there some workaround or maybe it is better to stay on 2.8.11 yet?

Thank you,
Oleg

If sample crashes too, consider filing a bug

Any resolution to this problem? I see the same issue in my app and the docview example. It looks like the event handler is passing in a wxID_FILE1 event ID instead of the wxID_MDI_WINDOW_CASCADE I expect should be hitting the handler.

I ran into this issue as well, fortunately the bug was fixed in the trunk months ago. See here:
http://trac.wxwidgets.org/ticket/12525

AFAIK, wxWidgets 2.9.1 (and whole 2.9 branch) are not considered to be a stable release.

Thanks, I know. http://trac.wxwidgets.org/ticket/12525 is reported by me.
About stability of wxWidgets 2.9.1 - unfortunatelly it is impossible in my case to use 2.8.11 in production code because of some critical bugs which are not going to be fixed. So I had to migrate on branch 2.9 and have had several annoying but not critical problems.
