1. Is this proper/legitimate way:
Code: Select all
m_myListBiox = new wxListBix( ... );
wxString test = "data";
m_myListBox->Append( "String1", &test );
2. If the code is correct - how do I get back the "data"?
I know I should use pointer to set the client data, but its just an overkill for such simple case.

If you use the overload that takes a "void*", the object must be allocated on the heap and you're responsible for deleting it.
If you use the overload that takes a "wxClientData*", the object must also be allocated on the heap but the listbox takes ownership and deletes it.
If you only want to store a string, you can use wxStringClientData.

You get the object back using wxItemContainer::GetClientObject()
