wxWidgets XP look
« on: June 10, 2007, 04:38:40 pm »
Hi i wanted to aks why the apps made with Codeblocks and wxwidgets have xp look ?

i wanted to get into makefiles and stuff to code for linuy and windows i also dowloaded the wx-config command port for windows to make project files for both systems (see )

but by startig to learn how to compile manually with g++ with a batch script my app looked different that the same compiled with same compiler with CB

here the example batch for my project with tinyxml (sorry its rather hacked ;)
Code: [Select]

i looked for all defeines and stuff in  the codeblocks project file included all linker defines like:
Code: [Select]
#define __WXMSW__
#define __GNUWIN32__

but still no xp look without an app.exe.manifest file with i couldn't find in the CB project folder so how is the trick done o.O

PS: ah yeah i forgot i also have commandpromt opened when i start the app i self compiled how is the trick done to let this vanish ;) ?

You need to compile a resource file (see windres for mingw) containing
Code: [Select]
#include "wx/msw/wx.rc" or your own manifest data.
So manifest data is included in the resource section of the executable.

ahh guess resource.rc was the last file i didn't handle ;) just thoudgt i dont need the icon so i cut it ..

but still i coulnt handle the rc file looked an windres but all i acived was to mess up my exe or to let g++ print out errors the simple include didn't work that made the bigges lsit of misstakes ;) and i couln't find a good tut for windress just the parameters and i don't know where to put the output (google couln't help me too)

but thx for the hint
