Is there someone who could test if they do work in wxWidgets (using C++) so that I can understand if it is a bug in my Python translation of FlatMenu (highly probable), a bug in wxPython or a bug in wxWidgets?
Using Eran's demo of FlatMenu is enough to test if accelerators work or not.

Thank you for your help.

Andrea.
If you mean that pressing Alt+F doesn't fire the File menu, then you are correct. I built this yesterday using VS2008Express and a svn checkout of wxwidgets.

Hi Eran,

have you had any chance to take a look at this issue? I debugged my code back and forth but I am just hitting a wall... perhaps FlatMenu needs its creator's attention in order to be fixed :D

Several suggestions

Post by Satervalley » Tue Sep 16, 2008 6:00 am

Hi, I like it , it's a realy cool works.thank eran for sharing.
I'd like to use wxFlatMenu in a rencently luanched app. I's seems that a long time not updated of this project. Here's some suggestions of my opinion.
1 can make the last menu on the menubar be right most
2 toolbar can be multi bands
3 toolbar item can be with drop down menu, like windows explorer's.
4 when the "customize" drop down menu disabled, auto shwo chevrons when there's no enough space for all toolbar items.

thanks.

i tried to download the files, in order to use flatmenu, but it seems that the links are broken. Screenshots don't show up either.

Is this project active?

thanks

wxFlatMenu "on-fly" recreation

Post by alex++ » Tue Mar 31, 2009 7:54 am

Hi Eran,

First of all, thanks lots, good job! :)
I have a question to you. I'm using wxFlatMenu and I've got one trouble. I have a multilingual user interface and when I recreate UI on switching language weird thing happens with wxFlatMenu. The problem is as follows: during UI recreation process, main window pending deletion is called when new menu instance is already created and deletion of old wxFlatMenu instance corrupts a new instance somehow, i.e., selection of any menu button after recreation throws an exception because menu items appear to be invalid. I tried to modify your example to check if it was not my application's fault, but the same problem appear.

Regards,
Alex++.

Here is the patch to make the menu send wxEVT_COMMAND_MENU_SELECTED instead popup a menu.

Usage:

Code: Select all

wxFlatMenuBar* b;
...
wxFlatMenu* m=new wxFlatMenu(ID_FOO);
wxFlatMenuBar* b->Add(m,("blah"));

Hi,

I got a chance to do some update to wxFlatMenu(Bar) code.

In brief:
- It now compiles under wxWidgets 2.8.10 / 2.9
- Improved drawing on Windows
- Fixed some text glitch on menu bar items

I added new CodeLite ( http://www.codelite.org ) workspace/project(s) for the wxFlatMenu with 3 configurations:
WinRelease -> Windows release Unicode
WinDebug -> Windows debug Unicode
UnixRelease -> Linux unicode

wxFlatMenu is now generated as DLL

The SVN link should work:

to obtain the sources:

Code: Select all

svn co https://opensvn.csie.org/wxFlatMenu wxflatmenu

Hello Eran,

Did you have a chance to upload the sources to your site?
Can you please provide the link? I can't find the sources from the links provided in this entire thread, they are all broken.

Thanks.
