event id of a disabled button

Post by ebe » Mon Sep 10, 2012 1:35 pm

hi masters,

Here i face some problem in getting an ID of a disabled button, by right clicking over on it.
I used context menu event, but i got the panel id only where the button has been created over it.
Please give some suggestion for it.

Thanks in Advance,
Ebe

Sure!..Auria..

Code: Select all

{
oneButton	= new wxBitmapButton( m_pTopLeftPanel,  wxID_BUTTON_1,  wxBitmap( wxT(""),wxBITMAP_TYPE_PNG ),wxDefaultPosition, MAXBUTTONSIZE,wxBU_EXACTFIT,wxDefaultValidator);
oneButton	->SetLabel(wxT("1"));
oneButton->Disable();
twoButton	= new wxBitmapButton( m_pTopLeftPanel,  wxID_BUTTON_2,  wxBitmap( wxT(""),wxBITMAP_TYPE_PNG ),wxDefaultPosition, MAXBUTTONSIZE,wxBU_EXACTFIT,wxDefaultValidator);
twoButton	->SetLabel(wxT("2"));
twoButton->Disable();
threeButton= new wxBitmapButton( m_pTopLeftPanel,  wxID_BUTTON_3,  wxBitmap( wxT(""),wxBITMAP_TYPE_PNG ),wxDefaultPosition, MAXBUTTONSIZE,wxBU_EXACTFIT,wxDefaultValidator);
threeButton->SetLabel(wxT("3"));
threeButton->Disable();
fourButton	= new wxBitmapButton( m_pTopLeftPanel,  wxID_BUTTON_4,  wxBitmap( wxT(""),wxBITMAP_TYPE_PNG ),wxDefaultPosition, MAXBUTTONSIZE,wxBU_EXACTFIT,wxDefaultValidator);
fourButton	->SetLabel(wxT("4"));
fiveButton	= new wxBitmapButton( m_pTopLeftPanel,  wxID_BUTTON_5,  wxBitmap( wxT(""),wxBITMAP_TYPE_PNG ),wxDefaultPosition, MAXBUTTONSIZE,wxBU_EXACTFIT,wxDefaultValidator);
fiveButton	->SetLabel(wxT("5"));
}
//context menu
{
int eventID = event.GetId();
wxMenu* menu = new wxMenu;
menu->Append( wxID_FORCETOEDIT, wxT( "&Edit" ));

if( eventID == wxID_BUTTON_1 && !oneButton->IsEnabled())
	PopupMenu( menu, wxDefaultPosition );
else if( eventID == wxID_BUTTON_2 && !twoButton->IsEnabled())
	PopupMenu( menu, wxDefaultPosition );
else if( eventID == wxID_BUTTON_3 && !threeButton->IsEnabled())
	PopupMenu( menu, wxDefaultPosition );
else if( eventID == wxID_BUTTON_4 && !fourButton->IsEnabled())
	PopupMenu( menu, wxDefaultPosition );
else if( eventID == wxID_BUTTON_5 && !fiveButton->IsEnabled())
              PopupMenu( menu, wxDefaultPosition );
}

okay but how do you catch the right click, and also which code do you execute on right-clicks that tries to get the event (if I understood correctly)
"Keyboard not detected. Press F1 to continue"
-- Windows

thanks for ur quick reply.. here iam using (wxContextMenuEvent& event).
while i right click over the enabled button i can popup a context menu by getting the event id,
but my need is to popup a context menu over the disabled button by getting the id of which button the mouse is over on.

instead of using context menu events, I suggest just using a regular wxMouseEvent with EVT_RIGHT_DOWN

yes..! i tried that.
Since the button is already disabled, I could not capture EVT_RIGHT_DOWN event.
