ide with autocomplete for wxwidgets

Post by mahajanudit » Fri Mar 13, 2009 6:47 pm

i am new to wxwidgets programming and i am searching for a good ide to assist me. now the buil-in functions as i have seen them have names that are self obvious about what they do. the only problem is knowing them... and each time i need something i have to search the net for it. can any one suggest an ide with autocomplete feature for wxwidget libraries?
thankyou

wxDev-C++ http://wxdsgn.sf.net has what you need.

If you decide to go the VS route there is a method of implementing this there too.

thanx.. actually i missed out that i need the ide for linux.. i checked wxdevcpp but its only for window. though codelite seems promising. i have used codeblocks, netbeans, eclipse cdt, anjuta but none have given me the autocomplete i need... i am not sure there even exists a good c++ ide for linux..

If you like autocompletion, I believe CodeLite has one of the strongest available on linux

thanx. i am using codelite and i think its what i needed. the autocomplete is working fine. now the problem is setting it for use with wxwidgets... how to set build and linker arguments in codelite? i.e. wx-config --cxxflags and wx-config --libs

Hi,

In Linux, Codelite uses the installed wx by default. If you don't have one, or if you wish to use a different wx, see http://codelite.org/LiteEditor/ProjectSettings

Regards,

David

I think the most common setup is Code::Blocks with GCC even on Windows.

And the accepted answer isn't for yourself! Especially when you don't answer your own question! lolol
