Form/GUI Designer, suggestions, Win & Linux
« on: April 17, 2011, 07:26:48 pm »
Hello

Is there a form designer included with the newest version 10.05?
I'm using 8.02 and it includes no form designer.  Is there a add on for forms?

I have not been able to find anything.  This seems like it would be a major deal and feature.

Any suggestions appreciated.

Yes, there is form designer for wxWidgets in both versions.
Search for wxSmith.
(most of the time I ignore long posts)

wxWidgets looks like the bomb.

I'll be using it in Linux also, looking for install info for that on wxWidgets.

If you mean windows, read here: http://wiki.codeblocks.org/index.php?title=WxWindowsQuickRef.
wxSmith is part of the contrib-plugins and normally installed with the 10.05 installer.
If not, rerun the installer and make sure wxSmith is chosen for installation.
The existing settings will not be changed by rerunning the installer.

Greetings,
Does this mean, using codeblocks, i could get all the benefits of wxSmith etc..
using just plain ol' "C"? Not C++.

Can codeblock give "C" all the functionality of :

Using Boost with Code::Blocks (Windows)
Using wxWidgets with Code::Blocks
Using SDL with Code::Blocks
Using GLFW with Code::Blocks
Using Allegro with Code::Blocks
Using FreeGlut with Code::Blocks
Using OpenCV with Code::Blocks    ?

Thanks...Vernon

No, not without a lot more work.
For example, wxWidgets is a C++ Library; without a C wrapper using it in a C program would not be easy.
