wxDataViewCtrl issues under mac os

I found wxDataViewCtrl just inherited from wxDataViewCtrlBase under Mac OSX, but under Windows, it is inherited from wxDataViewCtrlBase and wxScrollHelper, I am wondering, is it possible to make wxDataViewCtrl inherited from wxDataViewCtrlBase and wxScrollHelper under Mac OSX, same as Windows? and How can I?

thanks.

No. wxDataViewCtrl under OSX is a wrapper around a native control. Windows doesn't have a native control for that purpose, so wxWidgets uses a generic implementation there.

Why do you want that, what are you trying to do?

Hi,
You can try to call SetSize() on it.
How to calculate the proper size is a different issue though...

Thank you.

I don't think that's possible with the native control. But if you don't want scrollbars, you probably only have a fixed, small number of items to display. Does wxGrid work for your purpose? It's a generic control, so you have more control over it,

As a last resource, you can use the generic version instead of the native one.

For this, use two "define" and rebuild wxWidgets. See viewtopic.php?t=41995#p169933

Yes, it is done, thanks.
