Description This is wxWidgets 2.6.1 unicode stable. WxWidgets gives you a single, easy-to-use API for writing GUI applications on multiple platforms.

This is wxWidgets 2.6.1 static unicode stable. It was compiled from source against gcc 3.4.2 (dev-c++, with "./configure --prefix=c:/Dev-Cpp --enable-monolithic --disable-shared --disable-mslu --with-opengl --with-odbc --enable-unicode".

The package is based on wxWidgets package from upcase.de, except it was compiled from source against Dev-C++'s mingw system. It also contains template copied from Upcase's devpak. Additionally it contains most of the samples (in Examples directory) with dev-c++'s project files for them

Fixing the "no resources" error by guest 2011-01-12 19:35:00 Reply
Upon compiling the first time, Dev C++ generates a list of files required for the project. If compile is hit once again the project will compile without the error because the files now exist.
Basically I just hit Ctrl+F9, Ctrl+F9, Ctrl+F10.

AFAIR this devpak has examples which should have all paths set correctly and they should compile with no problem
bug report by guest 2006-08-05 03:57:22 Reply
Just a simple thing: when a new "wxWindow project" is made its default resource path is set to "C:\Dev-Cpp\include\wx-2.6" rather than to <devcpp directory>"\include\wx-2.6".

Hence the "*.rc" compile errors reported by some people, I guess.

Quick work around (DevCpp):
"Project"->"Options"->"Directories"(tab)->"resource Direcory", and add your current Dev-CPP path.
Further versions? by guest 2006-08-05 03:50:49 Reply
Thank you SPECU for the packaging, very very neatly done.

I would be very glad if you could submit a newer version of wxWidgets, say 2.6.6. That would be great!

wx.rc where can i down load this
Re: Re: Compler Errors by guest 2005-09-06 01:30:40 Reply
And add
sample ICON "taskbar.ico"
to this *.rc file.

You have to add *.rc file to the project with at least line:
#include <wx/msw/wx.rc>
and check if you've got a correct setting of Resource Directory in Project Options. It should looks like that:
and it will compile fine

actually the problem with smile.xpm seems to be a little more complicated. smile.xpm is in the project, is being included (it doesn't complain that smile_xpm is undefined), but for some reason not displayed. weird - maybe a bug in wxwidgets?

anyway, until it gets more serious I'm not going to rebuild this devpak just to remove two unused files from templates

I appreciate you help. I'm a newbie if you can't tell and I'm just starting to learn both C++ and wxWidgets so I was not really sure if I was missing something or what was happening with the template and the taskbar example.

both the wxWindows_Project_private.h and wxWindows_Project_private.rc are useless and can be deleted. wxWindows_Project_private.rc contains a definition for an icon that doesn't exist "My wxWindows.ico"

as far as taskbar - it only missed smiley.xpm. I'll put it there in a moment

Thanks. The "taskbar" example is supposed to show a smiley icon in the taskbar but its blank. Also, I tried the template a couple of times and the .rc does not seem to be copied. The resulting .exe also shows no icon under windows explorer whereas other projects I've tried show an icon.

the recompilation thingy is a bug in dev-c++. the template file contains list of files that need to be copied when a project is created based on that template, so the file private.rc file is either useless in this case (more likely) or it needs to be copied, but you managed to compile the project without it...

what exactly is not working correctly in taskbar example?
Re: Re: Compler Errors by guest 2005-07-07 19:30:27 Reply
It is installed in c:\dev-cpp. I did try compiling again with no errors but I think it is still not working correctly. The .rc is blank but the /Template shows a file called wxWindows_Project_private.rc which looks like it should be copied to the project directory. Also, the wxWidget example "taskbar" does not work properly.

where is your dev-cpp installed? I think it's not in c:\dev-cpp
if it is, try compiling it again - I get similar things for the first time

The wxWindow does not seem to compile correctly. I get a "no resources" error. This also happens when compling some of the wxWidget examples.
