Thanks for posting this.
I hope sfml-users will download and test the wizard to give us feedback, so it might get added to our sources.

Inspired by hatem.badawi's effort, I have also modified the SFML wizard to provide more options.

It allows to choose between SFML 1.6 and 2.0, and to link statically or dynamically.
I also updated the logo and wizard banner to use the new logo from the revamped website.

To try it out, just go to the folder where Code::Blocks is installed, go to share\CodeBlocks\templates\wizard, and replace the sfml folder with the one from the attached zip file.

i will try it tomorrow and give you my feedback .... nice idea to make the static and the dynamic linking as a choice .

Most of the time, the debug files are not installed with the library; is it wise to force the standard user to figure out how to resolve their Debug target for sfml-*-d and/or sfml-*-s-d ?  Linking against debug libs is normally only used (at least, normally in my opinion) when you are trying to debug the library itself (which is unlikely to be the case for the standard user), not the application.

Don't you want to use the debug build of the library to be able to debug the state of the objects that the library exports? You always get more information, which you can use.

The distributed SFML package including binaries also has the binaries for the debug build. I doubt they would be distributed unless the authors suspected users might find them useful.

You also use the corresponding debug build for wxWidgets in its project wizard.

As a habit where I work, we link to debug builds for any third party libraries that provide it and/or the source. For the ones that don't... nothing we can do there.

More information, yes, but useful information?  For me, most of the time not.  I rarely have need to step into a foreign library; my normal use case is to only need to identify my program's entry and exit points/conditions to libraries.

The distributed SFML package including binaries also has the binaries for the debug build. I doubt they would be distributed unless the authors suspected users might find them useful.
Building the source by default only created the release binaries.  Using apt-get by default does not acquire the debug files.

You also use the corresponding debug build for wxWidgets in its project wizard.
However, the wxWidgets wizard also checks if the files exist, and gives the option to link against release binaries if the debug ones are not available.

As a habit where I work, we link to debug builds for any third party libraries that provide it and/or the source. For the ones that don't... nothing we can do there.
I do not yet program in the professional workplace, so perhaps I am lacking on some practical experience...

I was referring to the Windows binary packages, which contain the debug libs. Is there no easy way to compile debug libs, if one is so inclined?

Good point. Maybe the same fallback option should be available in the SFML wizard.

Compiling debug is easy, just not default, so a user who does not specifically think to build them likely will not.

On Ubuntu (and I assume most other Linux systems as well) debug libraries are not named how they are on Windows: see here.  I will write a detection-fallback routine for Windows, and simply skip trying to link to debug on Linux.
