Cross-Platform GUI Programming with wxWidgets by Julian Smart

By Julian Smart

I used to be by no means capable of get DialogBlocks to construct the wx library. stored freezing midway via. ultimately I gave up and spent loads of time constructing an Eclipse setting. (This is on an outdated Powerbook...) have not labored with wx in home windows or linux but, yet to this point i will be able to say that this ebook isn't really for the newbie. you'll have sturdy origin in windowed program layout, makefiles and the gcc linker.

This is not the book's fault, yet cross-platform GUI improvement remains to be rather advanced. wxWidgets is a handy gizmo that has quite grown into adulthood, however it is unquestionably no longer panacea :) thankfully, there are a few very sufferer and skilled builders within the wx-user mailing checklist.

Because the range of existing cross-platform frameworks was limited, and the department didn’t have a budget for it anyway, there was little choice but to write his own. 0 to the department’s FTP site in September 1992, and other developers began to use the code. 0; Borland C++ users complained about the requirement for MFC, so it was rewritten to use pure Win32. Because XView was giving way to Motif, a Motif port quickly followed. Over time, a small but enthusiastic community of wxWidgets users was established and a mailing list created.

EVT_MENU is just one of many event table macros you can use to tell wxWidgets what kind of event should be routed to what function. The identifiers used here are predefined by wxWidgets, but you will often define your own identifiers, using enums, consts, or preprocessor defines. This kind of event table is a static way of routing events, and cannot be changed at runtime. In the next chapter, we’ll describe how to set up dynamic event handlers. While we’re dealing with event tables, let’s see the two functions we’re using as event handlers.
