Building wxWidgets example with static library
« on: October 28, 2005, 04:07:58 pm »
When I create a wxWidgets project from the built-in template and specify a static library, the app always fails with an error saying it cannot find wxmsw26_gcc_cb.dll. If I resolve the path issue then the app runs... but clearly with the DLL for what is supposed to be a statically linked exe.

It appears that the built-in template does not properly create a statically linked project but one which uses the DLL. (I presume this is a bug in the supplied template?)

How can I build a statically-linked project?

You need to build the wxwidgets library yourself, specifying "shared=0". This will make a static library.

Originally it was called libwxmsw.a , but I think the naming convention changed after wx2.6. I'm not sure.
