wxMac Drawers

Post by tim.ebenezer »

Hi Ryan - if you are about.
What happened to wxDrawerWindow ? did it ever get completed, or was it just axed? I really like the idea of having drawers through wxMac, and wondered if there was an existing implementation or if I should try to do one.

I noticed there is samples/drawer in CVS (with some stuff in the Attic) (edited by RN = you?)

Any guidance?

In short it should work just fine and is in

you'll need to include the adv lib in addition to base and core if you are using the seperate libs :D.


Long story is that ABX, another wxWidgets developer smoothed out a nice drawer sample - unfortunately something happened and the sample never made it in. I do not remember what exactly :\, at the time the plan was for a generic drawer-like window for other platforms - thus the (I guess now a two-year-old historical note) about the API changing.

(I personally have not done much wx development for about a year but used it in my last job and it worked good :D)

I tried implementing a drawer. However, when i launch my dialog the drawer is not attache do the left size of the dialog.
I have tried setting and un-setting the Preferred Edge. But the Drawer is always positioned at the top of screen and is partly hidden under the MAC OSx menu bar. :(

Please let me know if someone has implemented it or if there is any solution to my issue.
