### How to display math formula or symbol in wxWidgets?

Hi there,

How can I display math formula or symbol in wxWidgets? I don't want image method, it's not flexible to change in codes.

Is there any better way? or a kind of Tex render for wxWidgets?

Thanks a lot!

Hi,
?

Check wxDC documentation for proper parameters to the function...

Also, depending where do you want the formula to appear (wxRTC, wxTextCtrl, wxSTC), you might be using a special functions.

Thank you.

Code: Select all

```
dc.DrawText();
```

I mean this kind of math formula or express:

I don't know any C or C++ library for converting from LATEX to image, except latexpp , so you can try to use it. As an alternative you can find some utility for convertation and call it from your application.

This github project looks good.

From my point of view, there are two methods (which I think [latexpp](https://github.com/goldsborough/latexpp) covers those two methods)

1, use the pipe, and send command to the latex engine, and get the result image(such as a png image), and load the png image in the wx based application.

2, use some javascript library, which need a wxWidget based web(html) render supporting javascripts(such as Katex or Mathjax).

I think method 1 is much simpler than method 2.

But I think method 2 can be more dynamic, anyone has any experience about method 2?

Thanks.

I found another good latex render library.

It looks good.

Please note that the cLaTeXMath project doesn't have a wxWidgets port, so you have to implement it yourself. Show us the progress if you have any good work.shawnee wrote: ↑Tue Apr 07, 2020 7:33 amThank you, ollydbg23!ollydbg23 wrote: ↑Tue Mar 24, 2020 12:57 amhttps://github.com/NanoMichael/cLaTeXMath
