Inheriting background color from parent window

Post by Victory » Sun Nov 06, 2011 6:36 am

wxFrame has a background color attribute ("bg"). When I create a layout in wxFormBuilder and set the "bg" attribute for the frame, all the panels within the frame inherit that background color. But, in the application, when I create the frame by loading the XRC file corresponding to the layout, the child panels do not inherit that background color. What should I do to make the child panels inherit that background color?

I looked at the XRC file and noticed that the "bg" field did indeed get exported into the XRC file.

Thanks.

Hey,

Do you use the bg field when loading the XRC file?
Could you maybe post some code?

Greetings
