If you go to the Help menu and choose about, what version number of wxDev-C++ does it say? Mine says 7.0 RC5. It is important to know the version number due to changes between versions.

I _HAVE_ downloaded wxDev-C++, I have even _INSTALLED_ it, I can compile programs with it, but I dont find any button to press in the IDE to get to the FORM EDITOR or dialog designer or form designer or whatever it may be called.

If you start a new wxFrame or wxDialog project, the form designer should appear right away. If not, then click on the file tab that ends with ".wxform" (e.g. "Project1Frm.wxform") and it should show you an empty form.
Everybody's got something to hide except for me and my monkey.

Then only a window with grey background and a black dot grid opens but I see no buttons to add widgets like those shown in the book. But I see a properties/events window like in the book.

Now there is a components window, but when I click into it then the grey window disappears...

The book is now out of date due to big changes in the designer. This will (eventually) be rewritten.
