Use generic implementation of wxDataViewCtrl on OSX

If you are using the main C++ distribution of wxWidgets, Feel free to ask any question related to wxWidgets development here. This means questions regarding to C++ and wxWidgets, not compile problems.

Use generic implementation of wxDataViewCtrl on OSX

Post by Anil8753 » Tue Mar 22, 2016 5:15 am

By default wxDataViewCtrl has native implementation under OSX. How can I use generic implementation of wxDataViewCtrl under OSX. I do not want to make any changes in wxWidgets Code. I would prefer a macro or some specific header.

I defined wxUSE_GENERICDATAVIEWCTRL macro, It could not help.

Also I am thinking how I can use both native and generic implementation at the same time.

That's probably impossible as the generic wxDataViewCtrl uses the same class name (and not something like wxGenericDataViewCtrl).

For the same reason i think changing the wxHAS_GENERIC_DATAVIEWCTRL definition in /include/wx/dataview.h might work, but only when you rebuild the wxWidgets libraries afterwards.
Use the source, Luke!

tried wxHAS_GENERIC_DATAVIEWCTRL /include/wx/dataview.h for OSX. Got lots of linking errors

Did you rebuild wxWidgets afterwards? If yes, the sources are obviously not designed to use the generic wxDataViewCtrl under OSX. Theoretically it should be possible to make it work, but you'll have to fight through the errors yourself and possible change some more wx files for that.

Sorry Fixed!!!


We need to build wxWidgets with both
wxHAS_GENERIC_DATAVIEWCTRL
wxUSE_GENERICDATAVIEWCTRL


only wxHAS_GENERIC_DATAVIEWCTRL will not work
