WxSmith, NighltyBuild and WxWidgets 3.0.3
« on: August 22, 2017, 09:28:48 am »
Hello !

First of all, please forgive me if you find I haven't done all the research possible to find the answer to this topic.
It's a subject that seems to evolve fast with new versions appearing, and I didn't find a satisfying answer.

When I look at the NightlyBuilds sticky, I find it talks about wxWidgets 2.x

I'm on Windows and just installed MinGW-TDM 5.1.

I would like to know if I'm on the right path, and what are the next steps to do (which nightly build to download) to be able to use WxSmith in Code::Blocks with the last stable wxWidgets, 3.0.3 ?

I would love to follow wxSmith tutorials.

Thank you in advance !

Please at least tell me if my post is not welcomed because of lack of search, at least I'll know that I must search differently.
I have also tried under Linux and i have the C++ ABI incompatibilty problem when I launch my program. I know it is another matter, so I first want to try to use wxSmith on Windows.

Thank you !

Have you done the first step?

1. Build wxWidgets using your C++ Compiler.
2. Built and ran the wx minimal sample to be sure you have things right in step 1.
3. Tried to use wxSmith

Edit: Your question is so vague; that it is likely no one thought it worth an answer.
NOTE: I do NOT use wxSmith; so, I can NOT help you with it.

Your question is so vague

This MAY be due to the fact that English is not my main language.

The most clear version of the question I can give is : what is the most recent nightly build that I should download to be able to use wxSmith with wxWidget 3 ?

The fact that I always see informations about wxWidgets 2.x  in the nightlyBuilds topic worries me a little.
Actually I'v got a build of wxWidget on my Linux machine but the executable won't work because it wasn't compiled with the same version of gcc than my codeblocks instance. I did this a long time ago so I can't remember which version I used.

And on Windows it won't compile at all.

So I downloaded MinGW 5.1 and I'm ready to compile what's needed but I wanted to be sure about the version I should download.

Actually I read my OP again and I can't agree with the fact that it's vague ^^ I'm asking what nightly build will be compatible with the use of wxSmith & wxWidget 3.

If downloading a nightly download the most recent one.

The fact that code::blocks is built with wxWidgets 2.8 or 3.0 does not effect how well wxSmith works with wxWidgets 3.0.
But, the most recent nightly likely works better to build wxWidgets 3.0 projects.
