What is the right way to install wxWidgets with codeblocks

Post by sly_chandan » Sat Feb 27, 2021 7:16 am

I have downloaded the wxmsw setup and installed it.

I have downloaded the wxwidgets zip file along with headers and development zip files.

I compiled the wxwidgets with makefile command given on the page https://wiki.wxwidgets.org/CodeBlocks_Setup_Guide

mingw32-make.exe -f makefile.gcc USE_XRC=1 SHARED=1 MONOLITHIC=1 BUILD=debug UNICODE=0

It compiled properly. The dll is generated fine.

I have created a wxwidgets application by wxwidgets project template and specified the wxwidgets folder path in the wizard and the sample app builds fine and runs well.


When I create my own application then a simple command like close ends up calling recursively.

What is the problem with the wxwidgets compilation?
The same application works fine with Visual studio community edition

What is the right way to setup wxwidgets with codeblocks.

Please don't give me the PB user's steps because it is not explanatory.

I followed the setup steps posted on the forum

viewtopic.php?f=19&t=47233

But my app still goes in an infinite recursion.

Code: Select all

mingw32-make.exe -f makefile.gcc USE_XRC=1 SHARED=1 MONOLITHIC=1 BUILD=debug UNICODE=0
The UNICODE=0 is definitely suspicious. It's uncommon and usually not tested. Try with UNICODE=1. And the USE_XRC=1 is unnecessary.
Use the source, Luke!

Please give me a proper compilation command.

The one with without xrc

It still doesnt work.

I have tried the following commands:
mingw32-make.exe -j8 -f makefile.gcc SHARED=1 MONOLITHIC=1 BUILD=debug UNICODE=1
mingw32-make.exe -j8 -f makefile.gcc SHARED=1 MONOLITHIC=1 BUILD=release UNICODE=1

Now instead of the recursion I am getting the following error in debugger:

Code: Select all

CreateContactFrame::~CreateContactFrame()
{
    //dtor
    //this->Destroy();
  wxLogDebug("~CreateContactFrame");
}
If it's still the same code as this, there must not be a Destroy() call in the dtor.

Can you post/upload your current code again?

BTW: You have at least 3 different MinGW installations in your PATH, this can lead to all kind of problems.

It is just like the previous question I had asked a few days ago.

The question of form not closing.

Earlier it was destructor being called recursively.

Now it is the textctrlbase error.

Check the compiler settings in Codeblock. If it uses absolute paths for the compiler. it's possible that a different compiler is used to build your project than the one that was used to build the wx libs.

Yes I am using absolute paths.

What are the settings path like?

Could you please mention the paths of compiler settings!

Code: Select all

Set variable: PATH=.;D:\wxWidgets-3.1.4\lib\gcc_dll;F:\TDM-GCC-64\bin;F:\TDM-GCC-64;C:\Program Files\Common Files\Oracle\Java\javapath;C:\ProgramData\Oracle\Java\javapath;C:\Program Files (x86)\Microsoft DirectX SDK (February
When you build wxWidgets from the command line, the first tool chain in PATH will be used, in this case the one in F:\TDM-GCC-64\bin

Make sure CodeBlocks uses the same.

Remove all unused tool chains from PATH and maybe even from your system.
Use the source, Luke!

Try to copy and paste the code from the "minimal" sample into your project and check if it runs correctly.

If yes, please post your current code again.
