Problems with Menu's and MDI i it just Ubuntu?

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.

Problems with Menu's and MDI i it just Ubuntu?

Postby ndt_mike » Thu Mar 12, 2015 9:55 pm

So thought I would try a pretty simple MDI application and have ran into a problem.

Using the samples/doc with the MDI switch I get the previous menu's being persistant, but inactive.

Using samples/doc withe SDI switch, the menu's stay current to the window with focus.

Few questions:
Is this specific to Ubuntu, as I didn't see any other questions about it, thought it could be which is why I am posting this here.
Any idea's how to fix it? Tried accessing the menubar and deleting it prior to opening the next file, but all my attempts at writing this code fell pretty flat.

I am using version 3.01 of wxWidgets, I think.

Thanks guys.

Hi,

You've had no answers so far, perhaps because you posted this in the wxDev-C++ forum, which is for questions about that IDE which I suspect you aren't using.

If indeed you aren't, I'll move the thread to 'Platform Related Issues'.

Regards,

David

Yes, I confirm it's another side-effect of the unity stupidity. It happens for me in ubuntu utopic using unity; but not using lxde, nor debian wheezy/kde. I suggest you switch to a sane DE.

In theory it's yet another unity issue that wx should fix. In practice, it probably only happens in wxMDI, and as this is rarely used outside Windows...

Regards,

David
