Light gray background of wxTreebook on macOS

Post by asztandi » Thu Jan 14, 2021 9:00 pm

Hi Everyone!

I'm using wxWidgets 3.1.4 on macOS mojave (10.14.6). After upgrading to 3.1.4 I started seeing a light gray background in wxTreebooks, but only in the region that has no text:
wxTreebook_mac2.png

Is there a flag that I would need to change regarding to reset the background to white? Is it a feature or a bug?
Thank you, I appreciate all responses.

Andrea

Hi,
Do you see the same in the notebook sample?
How did you build wxWidgets? What was exact configure line?

Thank you.

Hello,
This code produces these dialogs on macOS (with wx 3.1.4) and on Windows (wx. 3.1.3):

Code: Select all

void CHelloWorldDlg::CreateControls()
{
    CHelloWorldDlg* itemDialog1 = this;

    wxBoxSizer* itemBoxSizer2 = new wxBoxSizer(wxVERTICAL);
    itemDialog1->SetSizer(itemBoxSizer2);

    wxStaticText* itemStaticText3 = new wxStaticText( itemDialog1, wxID_STATIC, _("Treebook"), wxDefaultPosition, wxDefaultSize, 0 );
    itemBoxSizer2->Add(itemStaticText3, 0, wxALIGN_CENTER_HORIZONTAL|wxALL, 5);

    wxTreebook* treebook = new wxTreebook(itemDialog1, wxID_ANY, wxDefaultPosition, wxSize(-1, 100), wxBK_DEFAULT);
    itemBoxSizer2->Add(treebook, 1, wxGROW | wxALL, 5);

    wxStaticText* itemStaticText4 = new wxStaticText(itemDialog1, wxID_STATIC, _("Notebook"), wxDefaultPosition, wxDefaultSize, 0);
    itemBoxSizer2->Add(itemStaticText4, 0, wxALIGN_CENTER_HORIZONTAL | wxALL, 5);

    wxNotebook* notebook = new wxNotebook(itemDialog1, wxID_ANY, wxDefaultPosition, wxSize(100, 120), wxBK_DEFAULT);
    itemBoxSizer2->Add(notebook, 1, wxALIGN_CENTER_HORIZONTAL | wxALL, 5);

    wxWindow* panel = new wxPanel(notebook);
    notebook->AddPage(panel, wxT("Panel"));

    wxButton* itemButton5 = new wxButton( itemDialog1, wxID_CANCEL, _("&Close"), wxDefaultPosition, wxDefaultSize, 0 );
    itemBoxSizer2->Add(itemButton5, 0, wxALIGN_CENTER_HORIZONTAL |wxALL, 5);
}

The notebook behaves well, only the treebook shows up with a different background color. I also noticed that wxEditableListBox behaves in a similar way: initially the entire list is gray and no text is shown, then when you click on a row, the text becomes visible having a white background.

These are the configuration flags we use:
--with-opengl --with-cocoa --enable-compat30 --with-libjpeg --with-libpng --with-zlib --enable-std_iostreams --enable-std_string --enable-protocols --enable-ftp --enable-fs-inet --enable-protocols --enable-ftp --enable-fs-inet --without-macosx-sdk --with-macosx-version-min=10.10 --with-macosx-version-min=10.10 CPPFLAGS=-I/opt/X11/include LDFLAGS=-L/opt/X11/lib PKG_CONFIG=/usr/bin/false

Thank you!

Hi,
So if you build the notebook sample that comes with the wxWidgets will you see the same difference?

I also find it weird that you configure line contains some options twice. And also there is some weird ones:

Code: Select all

--without-macosx-sdk --with-macosx-version-min=10.10 
You sure about that configure line?

Thank you.

Hello,

Yes, I see the same behavior in the notebook example: the wxNotebook is fine but the wxTreebook has the light gray background.
Does it have to do with any of the configure's options?

What would you recommend instead of this: "--without-macosx-sdk --with-macosx-version-min=10.10" ?

Thank you.

Hi,
Try to build it with just:

Code: Select all

../configure --enable-debug
Thank you.

Hello,

I configured the build as you suggested and the notebook sample still shows the treebook with a light gray background:
wxTreebook_right.png
wxTreebook_left.png
Is it a feature or bug?
Thank you.

Hi,
I don't know.
Try to send an E-mail to wx-users ML.

This forum is for users by users of the library.

Thank you.

Hello,

Following your advice I did ask that group and it turned out to be a bug that was recently fixed: https://trac.wxwidgets.org/ticket/18940

Thank you for all your help!
