Yet another group

I've opened a new group to allow specific discussion for wxWidgets on Windows platforms with the current prime focus of DialogBlocks and Visual Studio 2005 as IDE's and build systems. However, discussion of any IDE/build system on a Windows platform is encouraged.

I've written a small application using DialogBlocks with MinGW and Visual Studio 2005 and put together tutorial documentation (4 formats: .chm, .htb, .pdf, .html) to build the application from scratch, but full code is also included.

If you go to the group and join you can access the Links section and download the project zip file and one of the documentation zips. The first section of the documentation contains a view of the finished application.

There will be more tutorials as time goes on.

The address of the group is:

The Links section is one of the reasons for establishing this group as not many others seem to have facilities to allow such features or don't use them. If you become a member and have content you feel would be useful if linked for the groups use, please submit it and we'll see what can be done.

I've just uploaded and linked a new DialogBlocks tutorial that uses
MinGW and VS2005 to build a RegEx Tester application.

The tutorial/application explores many facets of DB, notably making
use of the Custom Control interface. The main wxWidgets objects are
wxRegEx, wxRichTextCtrl, wxSplitterWindow, wxFile, wxGenericDirCtrl,
and wxStdDialogButtonSizer.

On completion, you'll have a useful developer tool that allows you to
test wxRegEx regular expression in the various "flavors" recognized in
wxWidgets: Basic RE, Extended RE, and Advanced RE.

If you don't need the tutorial you can still access the project code
and build the tool for your use.

The code and tutorial can be accessed at:

More new links and one file. The file is a "quickie" tutorial on building wxWidgets library using DialogBlocks.

Pay a visit!;)
