RFC: Users suggestions or compliants about wxWidgets wizard.
« on: March 11, 2015, 12:12:21 am »
I am working on a patch to improve the CB wxWidgets wizard and I wanted to know what others are thinking needs fixed or improved with it.

The items I have finished the first pass on doing the patch are:
1. Added use of wx.include and wx.lib instead of wx/include or wx/lib.
2. Added user target variables for
WX_VERSION
WX_SUFFIX
WX_COMPILER as in gcc, vc, bcc, or wat.
WX_CFG
3. Planned to work on making the wizard work with wxWidgets binaries for gcc and vc compilers.

Questions:
Is anyone still using wizard for version 2.6?
Should I add version 3.1?

Edit:
Status of the wxWidgets wizard work is it still needs more testing under Windows.
And, has NOT yet had any testing under Linux.

I am testing my knowledge of using Git and I have placed the script here for me to test under Debian.
https://github.com/stahta01/cb_share/blob/master/templates/wizard/wxwidgets/wizard.script

I have already deleted and recreated that repo twice today. I think I have finally learned how to create a Git repo under windows that has the correct line ending for Linux. I hope to never have to delete the repo to fix line feeds issues. But, will NOT be sure till I can test it under Linux.

Why make another empty repo, but not reuse one of the existing cb repos?
(most of the time I ignore long posts)
[strangers don't send me private messages, I'll ignore them; post a topic in the forum, but first read the rules!]

Learning how to do line endings right in Git Repos was my goal yesterday.
It is far from easy to do it right on windows.
Once I get it finished I do plan to use a normal CodeBlocks Git Repo, also.

I just put the changes in https://github.com/stahta01/codeblocks_sf_tims/tree/resources/scriptedwizard

But, I still need to test the changes more under Windows; and, I have yet to test that the functionality was not changed under Linux.

I also still need to do step 3.

FYI: I plan to change the Git commit notes to prefix of
Code: [Select]
- Scripted Wizard:
And suffix of
Code: [Select]
(thanks stahta01).

Likely try to think of a better middle part of the commit note, also.

Edit: I have updated the message. Now to do more testing.
