Title: The sizers arent doing anything?
Post by: MadBoat on August 15, 2015, 01:52:46 am
Yesterday I was fiddling with some unrelated problems (AFAIK), and suddenly the sizers (both box sizers and grid sizers) I use in the new window I'm working on stop doing anything. I kept paring away functionality from my window until it's idiot-simple, and I still can't get the sizers to DO anything. The problem does seem to be limited to this new window, but I have no idea why.

I give up. Can you see anything I've done wrong?

#include <editorbase.h>
#include <wx/sizer.h>
#include <wx/button.h>

class BotsSummaryWindow4 : public EditorBase
    BotsSummaryWindow4(wxWindow * parent, wxString title);


void MAD_Debugging_Support::OnHitSummaryWindow(wxCommandEvent& event)

void MAD_Debugging_Support::DoStartSummary()
    if (!m_summaryDisplayed)
        m_summaryDisplay = new BotsSummaryWindow4((wxWindow *) Manager::Get()->GetEditorManager()->GetNotebook(), wxT("BotsDisplay"));
        m_summaryDisplayed = true;

#include "BotsSummaryWindow4.h"
BotsSummaryWindow4::BotsSummaryWindow4(wxWindow * parent, wxString title) : EditorBase(parent, title)
    wxBoxSizer *        buttonsSizer = new wxBoxSizer(wxHORIZONTAL);
    wxPanel *           helpMeObiwan = new wxPanel(this, wxID_ANY, wxDefaultPosition, wxSize(500, 500));
    wxButton *          west = new wxButton(helpMeObiwan, wxID_ANY, _T("west"), wxPoint(100, 100));
    wxButton *          east = new wxButton(helpMeObiwan, wxID_ANY, _T("east"), wxPoint(110, 110));

    buttonsSizer->Add(west, TRUE, wxEXPAND | wxALL, 1);
    buttonsSizer->Add(east, TRUE, wxEXPAND | wxALL, 1);
how it looks

This is identical to how it appears if I don't use sizers at all.


I notice also that I've been quite liberal asking for help around here recently. It is appreciated. :)

You're not using wxsmith, so your question is better asked in the wx forums/mailing list.

Yep. Got some useful advice over there. Here's the thread, which has a code sample.

Needed to call Fit() manually... don't know why I got away with that before, but it works now... good enough.
