Bumping it... the iPhone?

Do you have a typical platform dependent issue you're battling with ? Ask it here. Make sure you mention your platform, compiler, and wxWidgets version.

Bumping it... the iPhone?

Post by acsMike » Tue Jun 09, 2009 2:27 am

I'm sitting here at WWDC09 and am trying to learn everything there is about iPhone development. The iPhone truly appear to be a powerful platform, and covering it with wxWidgets would really be useful.

:arrow: Anyone know the status of the port of wx to iPhone? With that I mean fresh information. The info seem to be a bit sparse...

I understand the difficulties with an iPhone port (as opposed to a wxWinCE port) but if the port has been started it ought to be completed as well...?

Hi!
I suppose the major problem in porting to iPhone might be, that AFAIK iPhone apps are written in objective C. I'm not really sure if much work has been done to port wxWidgets using objective C.
OS: OpenSuSE, Ubuntu, Win XP Pro
wx: svn
Compiler: gcc 4.5.1, VC 2008, eVC 4

Indeed they are written in Objective-C, but don't think that's a great problem, as mixing Objective-C with regular C is trivial and allowed, plus that one can as easily have a C++ structure on the side, being called by C functions.

But writing a objective-C "layer" to call C++ functionality is probably time consuming and tedious...

wxWidgets already has some support for iPhone: http://svn.wxwidgets.org/svn/wx/wxWidge ... osx/iphone
