I can help with C::B with cross platforms.
« on: August 03, 2006, 01:10:39 pm »
Hi all:

I'm developing in Windows/Linux/OSX, and I use now C::B in with Windows/MinGW/wx. Now I'm using Eclipse in OSX, but I will prefer C::B...thinking in the posibility of create a project to compile the same code in all platforms (one code, one editor, multiple OS - OCEOMOS?? :) ).
For OSX I have a MacMini (PPC) and a MacBookPro (Intel), and I see that the SVN code fails....
Now I'm trying to compile using the GTK/X11 with fink (I want tC::B on OSX NOW!!!), and I'm solving some issues.
Can I help you to develop C::B.

My first thing:

Revision:2804
File: src/src/app.cpp
Line: 644
Code:
wxString CodeBlocksApp::GetAppPath() const
{
    wxString base;
#ifdef __WXMSW__
    wxChar name[MAX_PATH] = {0};
    GetModuleFileName(0L, name, MAX_PATH);
    wxFileName fname(name);
    base = fname.GetPath(wxPATH_GET_VOLUME);
#elif defined(__WXMAC__)
   // TODO: get the path
   base = _T(".");
#else
    if (!m_Prefix.IsEmpty())
        return m_Prefix;

    // SELFPATH is a macro from prefix.h (binreloc)
    // it returns the absolute filename of us
    // similar to win32 GetModuleFileName()...
    base = wxString(SELFPATH,wxConvUTF8);
    base = wxFileName(base).GetPath();
   if (base.IsEmpty())
      base = _T(".");
#endif
    return base;
}

On WXGTK there are two "base = ...". The first one it is failed on my compilation on OSX/GTK/X11.
I've commented it to avoid the error (in fact can be a "forgotten" line, ain't? )

Thx.

No, it "ain't a forgotten line" :).
What's strange is why you land there. Isn't __WXMAC__ defined?  :shock:
Be patient!
This bug will be fixed soon...

I don't have __WXMAC__ defined because C::B requires wxPopuWindow and that wxClass is not supported by WXMAC, so, I'm using fink and I compile wxWidgets with GTK. So i'm defining "WXGTK".
First I want to have a C::B working right (I probed the PPC version, but it have a lot of problems with the window layout).
And then to begin to work with WXMAC.

OK, you should know better. I have no clue about MACs :P

The binreloc library (which defines the SELFPATH symbol), is conditionally enabled in src/src/Makefile.am.

Code: [Select]
if CODEBLOCKS_LINUX
AM_CPPFLAGS = -DENABLE_BINRELOC -DAPP_PREFIX="\"@[email protected]\""
endif

You can make it unconditional and see if it works right...
Be patient!

I suppose that binreloc should work on MAC (OS X is called Darwin and it is BSD with a nice GUI and JFS, basically).
My question is: one of the lines of "base = ... " must be removed (in fact, the first line is not used.....)

No, it is used. Read the code:

Code: C++
  1.     // SELFPATH is a macro from prefix.h (binreloc)
  2.     // it returns the absolute filename of us
  3.     // similar to win32 GetModuleFileName()...
  4.     base = wxString(SELFPATH,wxConvUTF8);
  5.     base = wxFileName(base).GetPath();
  6.  

The second assignment, uses the same object (base). It's the same as writing:

Code: C++
  1.     base = wxFileName(wxString(SELFPATH,wxConvUTF8)).GetPath();
  2.  

only a little clearer.
Be patient!
This bug will be fixed soon...

wxMac supports a "form" of popup window that will work with CodeBlocks.
It's called "miniframe". You can pick it out of the following patch.
As used in Codeblocks, the "MiniFrame" class works just like wxPopupWindow on all platforms (MS, Unix, OSX)

It's called "miniframe". You can pick it out of the following patch.
I was going to say "wow, you're genious", when I changed it to use wxMiniFrame regardless of the OS (as it should work fine for Windows and Linux, too).
However, wxMiniFrame draws behind the Windows taskbar, so it is only partially visible :(
Any ideas on how to solve this? Well, anything apart from moving it up by the taskbar's height... :)

Oops!, I knew my luck couldn't last. My taskbar is in "hidden" mode, so I didn't see this.

I'll fiddle with it. It's using a style="0". I'll try some options.

thanks

Trying your solution with the wx comming with Tiger....

IIRC, the wxMac included with Tiger is 2.5.2 . I don't believe CB will work with that.

It doesn't appear that I'm going to be able to make the wxMiniFrame work as a top level window in MSW. wxPopupWindow is using a trick to make the Desk Top its' parent. That's how it stays on top without stealing the focus.

Guess we'll have to use the patch as is. I'll keep exploring it though.

It seems as if a shared lib and a static lib was introducing the same symbols. I must to investigate this.
