Hi,

this is nice. Compact and easy to use.

But it seems to be very slow. I made a test on my webserver and compared the time it takes to download a 1MB file with wxDownloadFile and with a Firefox. Firefox was almost 10 times faster(On MSW).
Well im still using WX2.6.0 but I guess this is not the Problem.

I would realy love to use it, but not with this performance.


greetings

Have you tried turning it off and on again?

This is not a multi threaded file downloader, I wrote to download small files easily, like the latest version of the software for software update dialog box. Its main purpose was easy to use, for more power you should use curl, etc.

The url seems to be down for me :(

Edit: still found it by going to the authors website.
For the people that want to know, the working url is: http://priyank.co.in/infusions/pro_down ... .php?did=1
