I noticed in the sample when the frame is resized vertically the status bar corrupts the bottom pane. I've committed a fix for this to CVS:

http://cvs.wxwidgets.org/viewcvs.cgi/wx ... 2=1.61.2.2

Applying this to 2.6.2 and recompiling the sample results in a noticable visual improvement when resizing.

Also a suggestion, you will need to use double buffering in your wxDefaultDockArt::DrawCaption implementation to avoid the flicker from drawing the text over the background.

BTW, excellent work.

Problems with toolbars

Post by kolo » Wed Apr 26, 2006 10:44 am

@theigor
I had the same problem with toobars. There are problems with size after loading perspective. Try this code

Somewhere in your code

Code: Select all

// creating toolbars
wxSize toolbarBestSize = m_frameManager.GetPane("yourToolBarName").best_size;

// after loading perspective
m_frameManager.GetPane("yourToolBarName").BestSize(toolbarBestSize);
only MSW & MSVS ))

The problem is as follows. In wxWidgets 2.6.3, the toolbar's initial client size (when wxDefaultSize) is specified no longer is set to the toolbar's minimum acceptable size. This is slightly different behavior than 2.6.2.

To fix this problem, we added code that sets toolbar initial toolbar sizes to whatever wxToolBar::GetBestSize() returns. Unfortunately, the size that is being returned by the class is too small (vertically). I don't know why.

At any rate, the way to get around this is to do your own wxToolBar::GetBestSize() call, then specify this size on your AddPane call with the BestSize parameter, while at the same time increasing the y parameter by the number of missing pixels.

I hope that wxToolBar::GetBestSize() on win32 can be fixed soon.

Either that, or you can check out the code that is doing the wrong calculation. It's called from wxAUI 0.9.2 on line 1293.

All the best,
Ben

Can I have the same behavior of toolbars set by ToolbarPane() in menus? Like MS Word?

Perhaps in the future I will implement this feature. For now, you can check out wxCoolBar: http://www.planet-berlin-it.de/wx/wxcoolbar/

Best,
