wxMDIBook v0.1

Post by RoCKdaFrogg » Mon Jul 04, 2005 1:00 am

I am releasing some cleaned up code bits of a current wxWidgets project I'm working on.

wxMDIBook provides additional features to the wxMDIParentFrame, wxMDIChildFrame, wxDocMDIParentFrame and wxDocMDIChildFrame classes of wxWidgets. It is a mixture of a MDI and a notebook interface.

More information, including source, and source and executable of a adapted docvwmdi example here: http://thomas.cherryware.de/wxMDIBook.php

Comments appreciated.

Wow, very nice! :D I wonder, did you test it on platforms other than Windows? How does it behave on Mac? Linux?

It does not work on any platform than Windows, most importantly because the client window is forced in front of the notebook (as reparenting the client window brings many problems) using a Win32 function.

I'm not really sure how MDI behaves at all under non-Windows platforms... Isn't it simulated using a notebook anyway?
