Intercepting a Focus event - at wxWindow level

Post by lowjoel » Mon Nov 14, 2005 1:37 pm

Does anyone by any chance know how to capture the focus loss event from within wxWindow (hence that function will be called for all derived classes?). I have a balloon tooltip that is programatically called upon, I want the balloon to disappear when focus has been lost from the window (whatever window it is, hence im using wxWindow)

Have a look at the wxEVT_KILL_FOCUS/wxEVT_SET_FOCUS events:

i put an event table macro in wxWindowMSW... hmm... but it wasn't called nonetheless... does that mean I should rebuild the whole library?
