Best control for the task

Post by ONEEYEMAN » Thu Jan 16, 2020 3:49 am

Hi, ALL,
Is there a control like wxListCtrl, which can have 2 columns: 1 have string and 2 have checkboxes.
The only operation available should be dragging in or out - no selection.

It looks like native wxListCtrl can have checkboxes in the first column, and wxListDVC is too big.

Thank you.

If you need 2 checkboxes, i can't think of any alternative to wxDVC. Except for dedicated controls, if the number of lines is not too big.
Use the source, Luke!

I have never tried, but at least in theory should not this be possible also with wxGrid?

I was afraid someone will say that. ;-)
Looks like I will be doing a little extra work....

Thank you.

I agree with PB, the control you need is a wxGrid.

Hi,
wxGrid does not support DnD natively.
I'm going to use wxDVLC.

Thank you.
