Title: Help with wxLED component
Post by: nishalns on April 14, 2013, 02:07:54 pm
I want to use wxLED component in my wxWidget projects developed using code::blocks 12.11.

When I added the wxLED component to the window, the compiler flagged an error that "led.h" header file was missing. So, I downloaded the header file and c++ source file from sourceforge and copied the led.h file to "include/wx/led.h" in this wxsmith directory.

Now, when I try to build the program it gives me a  whole lot of errors that the constructors and functions used for the led component are missing. So, I tried copying "led.cpp" (which was also downloaded from sourceforge along with "led.h") to the "src" folder in the wxWidgets directory.

Where should I place this "led.cpp" file and what steps should I take to fix this problem????

first of al it's not C::B related! This is a simple question of not understanding how c (c++) works (especially the compiling step), so i recommend you to read a good c tutorial (book).
Some help can be found here:
http://wiki.codeblocks.org/index.php?title=FAQ-Compiling_%28errors%29


or simply add the cpp file to your project....

Adjust your compiler include folder settings.

@nishalns:

Please stop double and triple-posting the same question.
You have been told to remove the first double-post and it looks as if you have done it.
But for some reason you asked the same question a third time in a new thread.
I just merged the two open threads.

If you do not learn how to behave correctly in forums, you will get banned for a while.

Be warned !

Yes I was. I downloaded the source files from https://sourceforge.net/projects/wxledplugin/files/wxSmithLed.zip/download (https://sourceforge.net/projects/wxledplugin/files/wxSmithLed.zip/download) and built them using codeblocks. I got some errors, but I was able to make appropriate modifications and build the library successfully. I would be happy to send you the ".o" file if you wish to...

To use the wxLed component in your projects all you need to do is to copy the led.h/cpp from the C::B SVN source tree into your project folder and make use of it. Its very simple. Don't use the one from the wxSmithLed project on sourceforge - this is outdated.

The wxLED name is very misleading, it is not part of wxWidgets.

If you reread the last message before yours:
Quote
copy the led.h/cpp from the C::B SVN source tree

That means wxLED is here (https://sourceforge.net/p/codeblocks/code/HEAD/tree/trunk/src/plugins/contrib/wxContribItems/wxled)

IMHO the posts look too elaborated, I think it is more a troll than a bot. I will check next week if his/its messages have been edited to add the usual spam.

I did not think of a troll.

You could also wait and see if there is a reply to these last few posts to say "I am not a ..... or _____".
