Is there any chance that wxWidgets will use its own renderer to draw its own controls like Qt in the future!?

Hello,
I was wondering if wxWidgets will use its own renderer to draw its own controls like Qt in the future!?

TIA.

The "Universal" port does exactly that, but it's not well maintained and only very simple themes exist for it. But if someone was willing to put some effort into this, it would be possible. But it's unlikely that any of the current core developers will do it.

Latest trunk have wxQT port that have been under quiet development. Did you check it?

That doesn't mean it is wx own drawing (it is only a third party).

By saying like Qt, I meant similar to Qt but proprietary to wxWidgets using its maintained and performant renderers.

Ok, I see. If the issue is "must be a wxwidgets" then check DM answer.
