Hello, I'm sorry to ask such a (probably) idiot question but i am brand new in C++ after 2 years of VBA and I can't find the equivalent of MSDN for Visual C++ (an Help which can describes function by clicking or F1ing)
I'm sure I have to exist but I can managed to find where.

Thxx
Bye bye

Two ways:

1) Add custom help files using "Settings->Environment->Help files".
Those will be accessible through the Help menu and when right-clicking on a word in the editor.

2) Ctrl-RightClick on a word in the editor ;)
Be patient!
This bug will be fixed soon...

Yes thanxxxx but the fact is that it doesn't find anything for functions like printf, scanf and others very basic C function ... so I wonder if I haven't a patch to put ... or ...anything

I don't know why you say that. Ofcourse it finds them.

Press Ctrl (keep it pressed) and right-click on 'printf' in your code. Select "Search MSDN for printf" and there you go...

I see... You 're using 1.0rc2. That's why you should state the version you 're using. We could avoid this confusion ;).
Look here.

Did you get anywhere with this......I'm asking myself the same question.........I can't figure it out either and I'm running W2k with Build Oct 24th 2005, 23:49:28 - wx2.6.1 (Windows, ANSI) because I can't find a darn thing on this....

the one from 25th october is RC2. Try to download a nightly build :
http://forums.codeblocks.org/index.php?board=20.0

And here : http://wiki.codeblocks.org/index.php?title=Nightly_Cookbook
you can find some info about setting up Mingw compiler yourself and the nightly. All the other stuff you can forget about, unless you want to build cb yourself.

Ok.......now I feel like a moron, I'm not talking about setting up code blocks or anything like that, I'm just trying to figure out how the help files work....

I looked on the Nightly Build and nothing is before January and you ask me to refur to October, and I went over the Nightly Cookbook and I didn't see anything over it specifically either.....I know that the help files seem to be in the (in windows) C:\Program Files\codeblocks\info\make.info but I don't see an organized way to pull it up......

What they've been trying to get across to you is that the version you're using is outdated. It doesn't have the help functionality of the newer versions. Get a newer version.

Oh, I didn't realize, what you were driving at....

Yep, that worked well:

If you got the nightly out of the forum (which I assume) then in the very same post was also a link provided to download this DLL. Please read the post that provides the nightly. The "nightly" posts really provide everything, really!
With regards, Morten.

A link to the unicode windows wxWidget dll for Code::Blocks : http://download.berlios.de/codeblocks/wxmsw26u_gcc_cb.7z

I'm really behind the curve on the language this this is only the third day that I have ran this program......
