Ribbon interface - Is it going to get emulated in wxWidgets?

Post by AkiraDev » Tue Oct 28, 2008 8:40 am

Hey guys,

Just wondering... Does anyone know of any work being done on emulating the Office2007 Ribbon interface? It seems it's going to become the next standard interface in Windows 7, so I can't really imagine wxWidgets 3 not having it. :)
Back, just not as often

Windows Vista SP1, Ubuntu 8.04
MinGW 3.4.5, GCC 4.2.1
Code::Blocks
wxWidgets 2.8.9

And what would wxWidgets use to emulate that same UI in GTK+ or Carbon/Cocoa?

It isn't a cross-platform component, so there's no point in wxWidgets wrapping any of it. If you really want to use it, just use the native API for it. Just because you're using wxWidgets doesn't mean you can't still use it.
