Please help me compile with wxWidgets support!
« on: July 08, 2006, 01:32:43 am »
Hello everyone!
I'm trying to follow this tutorial.  I got stuck at 5.1 Setting up paths.
I opened the CodeBlocks.cbp file (the one that comes here is the one it's talking about, right?), but it didn't ask me anything about a global variable...  So I tried compiling it, but it gives me these errors:

Code
Project   : Code::Blocks
Compiler  : GNU GCC Compiler (called directly)
Directory : C:\Program Files\CodeBlocks\src\
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Switching to target: tinyXML
Compiling: sdk\tinyxml\tinyxml.cpp

                 from sdk\tinyxml\/tinyxml.h:60,

sdk\tinyxml\/../settings.h:66:20: missing binary operator before token "("
Process terminated with status 1 (0 minutes, 22 seconds)
3 errors, 0 warnings
 

Thanks in advance!

[edit] Update: I figured out what it was, I had to set the $(wx) variable to wxWidgets dir.  But then it complained about wxprec.h not existing, so I added C:\GCC\wxWidgets\include and C:\GCC\wxWidgets\lib to compiler/linker dirs...  But now I get all this crap:

First, those instructions assume you are using one of the Nightly Builds, which are generally more stable and much more feature-rich than RC2. RC2 does not support global variables, among other things.

Second, if you are already using a nightly, then the WX global variable has already been defined somehow and you'll need to change it to the correct value.

Oops - I edited that first post without reading yours...  Sorry 'bout that!  But thanks, I'll try and use a nightly build.

This is even better I think. :)

Damnit...  Sorry to bother you guys too much, but I accidentally got the message about global variables out and I can't get it back there.  How can I do it manually?  Creating a $(wx) variable in Settings->Global variables doesn't work...  Thanks!

[edit]
(Sorry for editing so much...)
OK, I changed the variable to $(#WX) and it changed itself to set_wx... Yay!  Now I added include/lib dirs in Settings->Compiler and debugger and I'm getting the same errors I got in the 2nd code block in my 1st post...  Thanks!

No offense, but if you would take the time to read entirely through wxWidgets' own documentation on setting things up, you'd find your answer. Also, not only is this detailed information available in the included documentation and on the wxWidgets Wiki; there are entries in the Code::Blocks Wiki and even stickied posts in the C::B forums regarding the process.

Event with all this free, easily findable and well-written information floating around, I still find myself typing long winded explanations to people who come along asking how to get wxWidgets working (you'll find them if you do a forum search). Well, let's keep this one simple.

Make sure $(#WX.lib)\gcc_dll\msw is in your compiler directories. Better yet, run the wxWidgets project wizard, which will hold your hand every step of the way.


wxWidgets is a complex beast. This I know and will readily admit. Take the time to become familiar with it, and it will at least get the job done.
