Well, after a month of vivisection I finished it!!! At lats...!

wxToolBox is a powerful and extremely customizable skinnable component that works like VisualStudio toolbox and supports XML-based skins.

Project's homepage:
Mirror site: ... index.html

Looks very nice! What controls can it contain? Ony text or any kind of control? I started with wxFoldPanelBar but it was put into the contrib section too quickly. It was not finished and contained bugs. I lost interest in it but was planning to work on it again. If you control can do more or the same, then there is no real need for it ofcourse ;-)

A shame. But understandable. People have to live. Well at least there is a drive for me to continue with mine then.

What controls can it contain
It can't contain controls (except text control for editing captions). It works just like ToolBox, not like container.
And it is completely owner-drawn.

I earn enough by working for my employer, so at home I get satisfaction out of seeing my work being used by others, getting feedback etc.

Who knows one day I will have a brilliant idea and launch a commercial app. The probs with that is that people expect updates, support etc. That would form a second job at home as well, and then you have to wonder if the extra bit income is really worth it.

But that is all put aside. let's not spoil T-rex's announcement :-)
