IntelliJ Like Navigation Bar Component?

Postby evstevemd » Sun Aug 30, 2015 6:20 pm

I was looking for functionality like Navigation widget in. Basically it breaks full path into a series of "Button Images" and with each button representing a folder hierarchy. When you click a folder icon it lists files as list of Items. I know that can be accomplished with wxWidgets by combining some widgets but I wanted to know if such widget exists somewhere in wxWidgets. I could not find it in wxCode so I wanted to be sure it does not exist (or at least something similar does not exist) before I write my own.

Here is how it looks like

Just for the reference, such control is often called a breadcrumb (bar). It is also used e.g. when browsing a filesystem with Windows Explorer on newer Windows.

Unfortunately, I do not think I ever saw its wxWidgets implementation.

I didn't knew the same name applies to the desktop :)
I think I will have to write my own. Which widgets combination in your opinion is better?
I think of wxPopupWindow, wxListBox and wxBitmapButton

Hi,
I wanted to post to wxCode and accidentally did it here. pls Mods help me move it there

No, you did post to the wxCode subforum. I moved it out because you stated it isn't a wxCode component, so it seems off-topic here.

Why do you want it here in particular?

Regards,

David

sorry. I don't know what happened to me but I saw it in C++ forum.
No specific reason, I just thought it better fits here. Feel free to move it wherever it makes sense
