Hi!
Tough question, as I'm also interested in this but haven't found something that suits my needs.

Have a look here http://wiki.wxwidgets.org/Tools, there some tools listed.

What I'm interested in is a tool like Squish, but unfortunately this is only available for Qt, Java and "web" (whatever that means).

Because of that situation, I started a little project myself. So far it's nothing more than kind of a macro recorder. It catches all events and stores them in a simple script-like language. At the moment I'm finishing the last events to catch. One can load scripts and run them. What I plan is to implement a good parser for the scripts (currently very amateurish) and the ability to perform and record tests and their results.

If you find a tool, please report back! Although I'm having fun writing this, it might save me a lot of time...
OS: OpenSuSE, Ubuntu, Win XP Pro
wx: svn
Compiler: gcc 4.5.1, VC 2008, eVC 4

I have found the following tools provide some level of features but I am not sure how they will work.
A complete list is available here. Please let me know, if any one has already used.

For me dogtail looks ok, but not sure whether it works on windows.
