Re: New wxWidgets FFmpeg player example application with Face Detection

The face detection part cannot be used in a commercial application, but the rest is open and free to use. This project is intended for learning; the Dlib face detection data set is for noncommercial learning purposes only. But the ffmpeg, Boost, wxWidgets, image libs and such are fine to use in comm...

seeking most basic opengl with a texture example

Working in win10, 3 different flavors of Visual Studio, plus gcc in wsl2/Ubuntu 20... I've been using OpenGL with wxWidgets for years, and OpenGL for decades, but never had to render with textures within wxWidgets. Attempting to add just a textured triangle to a working OpenGL scene, I see my polygo...

Rendering OpenGL larger than it's wxWindow

I have a wxWidgets win10 desktop app where it reads and processes video, adding labels and markers for objects tracked in the video. It displays the processing inside a wxGLCanvas inside a wxFrame, setting the glViewport to the window width, height, setting gluOrtho2D to the window size, then calcul...

Re: any up to date dev install guide for Ubuntu?

Thank you David.

That one "magic' apt install' line" you provide is for some unknown reason not provided by any of the guides I can locate.

I could rant, but I won't.

any up to date dev install guide for Ubuntu?

So, I normally work in Windows when working in wxWidgets. I am currently trying to start working on a port of my latest work to Ubuntu, but for the life of me I am just running in circles trying to figure out the correct steps to create the wxWidgets development environment. Online information tells...

Re: advice needed: opengl gui library that goes with Wx

It is possible to make wxWidgets toolbars with more feedback than they offer by default. Because OpenGL updates so fluidly, my users were sometimes thinking the wxWidgets controls were disabled simply because they did not react with mouse hovers. So I add events for many of my controls; events trigg...

Re: advice needed: opengl gui library that goes with Wx

I've experimented with Dear ImGUI and wxWidgets, which I ultimately abandoned. I find it more efficient to use traditional wxWidgets windows and controls beside an OpenGL canvas or inside floating windows above and separate from the OpenGL canvas window. The controls placed beside an OpenGL canvas a...

Re: ramifications of not using sizers?

I wish I used a GUI to create our apps' GUIs. The CTO I work for does not like them, and does not let his staff use them. :roll: It would have saved weeks (accumulating to months) of dev time, but the CTO has had experiences where a GUI builder cannot do what is needed, and then the other auto-built...

Re: ramifications of not using sizers?

Doublemax, Well, I just spent some time setting different monitor scale and font scale settings on a range of different systems, and I'm getting the layout I expect. But then again, I am extremely explicit in all my font usage. Every place I create a wxWindow or control it receives an application se...

ramifications of not using sizers?

Over the last year, probably due to never having seen any document like the "What do these sizers things do?" ( http://neume.sourceforge.net/sizerdemo/ ) I have abandoned using sizers in any new windows/panels/dialogs I create in new code. I find the process of window/panel/dialog contents and contr...
