Title: A new wxSmith Tutorial
Post by: Jt on July 09, 2009, 04:49:35 am
Hello,

I'm not sure if this is the correct forum to post this in, but here goes...

I'm fairly new to wxWidgets and wxSmith, but I've just completed my first "from scratch" application.  Its a fairly simple, four function RPN calculator.  I wrote it strictly as an exercise for myself.

I've learned a ton from BYO's tutorials, but found them a bit light on the implementation side, focusing mainly on the wxSmith interface.  So I have begun (almost finished) a tutorial for this project, which is a full fledged application.

My question is whether or not anyone would be interested in something like this.  I couldn't find anywhere on the board to submit user-generated tutorials such as this.  If there is interest, would someone advise me where I may submit it?

I love Code::Blocks, and wxWidgets and wxSmith, and would like to contribute something.  I'm even thinking of doing a wxSmith video screencast tutorial on this project.  I looked and looked, but couldn't find one.

Thanks,
Jt

I suggest making a New Wiki Page for it.

I plan to learn to use wxSmith in the future and your wxSmith Tutorial sounds like a good idea.

I don't think I'll do that. (the Wiki page, that is... the tutorial is done, in OpenOffice writer.)

I'm moving on to wxPython.  Wish there was a Python plug-in in CB. 

Anyway, its been fun.  I'll always use CB for my C++ efforts.

I would absolutely love a copy of that tutorial. I'm in the process of switching to code::blocks and wxwidgets (from Borland C++ Builder 1.0) and am finding the existing material a bit light as well.

Thanks in advance,

Steve

Yeah, Its finished.  So far only Steve has requested it.  John, if you or anyone else is interested, message me with an e-mail addy, and I'll be glad to send it.

Its a fairly simple app, but just writing the tutorial taught me alot.  I'd hoped there might be more interest, or a hint about uploading it to the forum without making a wiki page.

Its available if anyone wants it.

PS... Steve, did you find it useful?

Maybe anybody else, finds the time to make a new wiki-page based on it.

If anyone would like to take a peek, and wiki it, that would make me very happy.  I think its a decent tutorial.  Its in Open Office format, but I could convert it to Word if needed.

Lots of screen shots and such.  lol!

You can send it to me, maybe I find the time to put it to wiki.

Please do not convert to doc-format.

I've moved on to wxPython for GUI stuff.  And Python for regular programs.

Jens has this tutorial... he can do with it as he pleases.  I no longer support it. (not that I ever did... lol!)

Of the five people who asked me for it (and I sent it to) I only heard back from one.

So, screw it!  The Python crowd is much more friendly and interesting.

Thanks to the folks who work on wxWidgets!  We're working on Python 3.0 integration!

Did anybody wiki this tutorial up anywhere (or even just host it somewhere) please?  I think I'd find it useful!

Thanks,
