This is a simple test project that began by adding a wxPanel to a wxFrame, then a few controls.

This autogenerated code  line causes the error on build:
Code: [Select]
Panel1->Connect(wxEVT_PAINT,(wxObjectEventFunction)&wxPanel4Frame::OnPanel1Paint,0,this);
Build Log:

----------------------- end build log ------------------------------------------

When I comment the Panel1 line, the Build is without errors. But later during other file edits, my comment marks (//) mysteriously disappear.
When deleted, the line reappeared.
So I need to define a reference to 'wxPanel4Frame::OnPanelPaint(wxPaintEvent&)'  I am not sure where or how.

The project EXE file works perfectly with the line commented.

I can post more code if necessary.
(using C::B 13.12, wxWidgets 3.0.2, Win XP)

Any suggestions appreciated.

Do you have wxPanel4Frame class? If you have just define the function.

If you don't want to override the paint event in this panel then just:
1. find it in the tree of controls
2. switch to the event tab in the properties control
3. remove the function for the paint event

That solved it.

Thank you.
I'm not sure how the EVT_PAINT paint event was added, or how I added it accidentally.

You've probably double clicked on the panel in the ui editor...
