AddPendingEvent() is inaccessible

Postby MoonKid » Tue Feb 10, 2009 7:56 pm

After updating my SVN yesterday (it was few month old) I got a error message from my compiler I have never read before.

Code: Select all

mingw32-g++.exe -Wall -DwxUSE_UNICODE  -g -D_DEBUG -D__WXDEBUG__ -DWXUSINGDLL -DWIN32 -D__WXMSW__ -D_WINDOWS -DNOPCH  -Wall   -IC:\wxWidgets\include -Ithird-party\wxSerialize\include\wx -Iinclude -IC:\MinGW\include  -c D:\Garage\projekte\blackfisk\trunk\src\BFMsgObserver.cpp -o .out\objs_debd\src\BFMsgObserver.o
D:\Garage\projekte\blackfisk\trunk\src\BFMsgObserver.cpp: In member function `virtual void BFMsgObserver::ValueChanged(Subject*)':
C:/wxWidgets/include/wx/event.h:2895: error: `virtual void wxEvtHandler::AddPendingEvent(const wxEvent&)' is inaccessible
D:\Garage\projekte\blackfisk\trunk\src\BFMsgObserver.cpp:97: error: within this context
Process terminated with status 1 (0 minutes, 4 seconds)
2 errors, 0 warnings


I don't know what "inaccessible" mean in that context. My compiler never used this word before. ;)

The "context" is

Code: Select all

            wxCommandEvent event(wxEVT_COMMAND_MENU_SELECTED, BF_BACKUPPROGRESSDLG_QUESTION);
            // message type
            event.SetExtraLong  (pSys->GetLastType());
            // the question
            event.SetString     (strMsg);
            //
            BFBackupProgressDlg::Instance()->GetMutex()->Lock();
            // send event
            BFBackupProgressDlg::Instance()->AddPendingEvent(event);
            // want for answer from main-thread/user
            BFBackupProgressDlg::Instance()->GetCondition()->Wait();
            // get the answer
            stop = BFThread_BackupRunner::CurrentlyRunning()->GetUsersStopAnswer();


But I don't know if it helps.

This is the non-public-missing(!) definition of the class

Code: Select all

class BFBackupProgressDlg : public wxDialog
{
  // ....


Any idea what happened here?

Hi,

There have been various changes recently in the event code. One of these was to make wxEvtHandler::AddPendingEvent and wxEvtHandler::ProcessEvent private. Why? Because (according to VZ) if you call them direct, the default handler is called, ignoring any others that may have been pushed. Instead you should access them via wxWindow::GetEventHandler.

So your code should be changed to:
BFBackupProgressDlg::Instance()->GetEventHandler()->AddPendingEvent(event);

Regards,

David
