wxDataViewModel and companion classes ?

Post by lollisoft » Sat Aug 09, 2008 12:30 pm

Hi,

what about these wxDataViewModel and companion classes ?

Is this an attempt to get a generic interface how to display
and manipulate data - regardless where the data comes from ?

If so, I am interested in it and who is working on it.

Thanks,

Lothar

wxDataViewModel is the base class for all data model to be displayed by a wxDataViewCtrl.
So basically, the building blocks for the contents of a wxDataViewCtrl.

The Docs tell all.

I mean who (developer) is involved with that.

I am interested in writing applications for that. If there are
no samples, I propably like to get more help with the developer
who has developed this classes.

With the developer at hand it would propably worked out a demo more fast.

Or is there any sample out ?

Regards,

Lothar

If there aren't any samples that came in the distribution's 'samples' folder, just use the docs... They are quite thorough in my experience.

Hi,

I must disagree with that. At least with wxWidgets version 2.8.8. Some days ago I have found a dataview folder in the samples folder. But it doesn't compile per default. Therefore I have searched in the config.log for dataview.

To activate the sample, add --enable-dataviewctrl=yes

It works well under Linux (PPC). On Mac OS X the displaying of the data is a little bad and the UI behaviour is missing something compared to Linux.

Other platforms are not tested yet.
