New wxWidgets 2.6.3-RC2
« on: March 19, 2006, 07:09:12 pm »
Just an slightly off-topic notice: wxWidgets 2.6.3-RC2 is out. I'm currently compiling and I'll give a try to "C::B versus wxWidgets 2.6.3-RC2"... ;-)
With regards, Morten.

Interesting new. Thanks for sharing it :). If you build C::B with wxWidget 2.6.3-RC2, please let me know if you still have layout problems as I have posted here.

I will build 2.6.3-RC2 tomorrow and give it a try.

Best wishes,
Michael

Let us know if it fixes the nasty GUI toolbar problems, as I suggested here.

Yes, the toolbar problems remain. It's exactly the same, they are too wide as in your post. :-(
With regards, Morten.

Well, I'm using XP so the issue remains there. Anyway: I tried to disable theming by using WindowsXP in "classic design" mode. I'm not sure whether the theming dll is really "disabled" then but this doesn't resolve the issue, too. :-(

Thank you very much for your feedback :). I have also asked in the wxAUI forum, but it seems that it is not wxAUI the cause :(.

Best wishes,

For now I'd say it is wxAUI. The value for bestw - the best width for the toolbar - is calculated wrong. It is always computed to the value 792 - whyever. This is part of wxAUI, you'll find the code in manager.cpp.
I don't know yet where exactly this happens, I'm still digging into this...
With regards, Morten.

Hmmm. Personally, I do not exclude wxAUI to be guilty, anyway, this is the answer I have got from Alex Bligh:

I have. It works fine. I've done the largest number of tests with the patches at http://www.alex.org.uk/wxAUI/index.html applied, but even without them, I've at least tried the sample application and it's OK.

Best wishes,
Michael

I can confirm this - I tried myself. And in the other topic Thomas pointed out that he also believes it's not an wxAUI issue. He also explained, why... I guess... I didn't really get it... :oops: :lol:
