Hi All,

I am looking for a control which can give me a dialog which looks similar to the "Compose Mail" option. Attached is a screenshot of what I am looking for.
Is it possible to get something like this in wxWidgets, without me having to add each of them individually to a wxDialog?
Please help!

There is no ready-to-go dialog with these fields. But it should be easy enough to build one yourself.

Hi Deepti,

I too like to focus on designing the screen rather than programming all the widgets and sizers to form the screen you just showed. For that I spent some 50 or 60 euro's to buy the DialogBlocks software from Anthemion software by Julian Smart. It is a small fee for what you get. A true wysiwyg editor where you can build your screen by drag 'n' drop. It generates C++ code or XRC files to include in your code. Saves you a lot of time. Worth considering....

regards,
Nunki

Hi,
Or you can just download wxGlade which is absolutely free RAD tool and design everything there.
Granted there is no IDE integration, but it is free and you can use code generated from it on any platform.

Thank you.
