wxExecute in command line program: async not working

Post by Morfio » Thu Nov 29, 2018 9:57 am

Hi,

wxExecute with wxEXEC_ASYNC flag works perfectly in a gui driven program. If I use it in a command line program, it always switches to sync mode. Is it possible to start processes with wxExecute in async mode in command line programs or is there another command that works in this way?

Thank you

Morfio

Which platform and wx version?

It's possible that async mode requires a running event loop (which you usually don't have a in console application) but i haven't checked the sources to confirm.
Use the source, Luke!
