Demo of C++ wxWidgets wxGrid on Ubuntu Linux

This works quite simply but… there is a trick with CodeLite with wxWidgets. Make sure you use the g++ compiler instead of gcc as there is some strange compiler error. This is on Ubuntu 14.05

Source code (not my original code)


#include “wx/app.h”
#include “wx/frame.h”
#include “wx/grid.h”
#include “wx/datetime.h”

class MyFrame : public wxFrame
        : wxFrame(NULL, wxID_ANY, “Chronological data”)
        wxGrid *grid = new wxGrid(this, wxID_ANY);
        grid->CreateGrid(21, 12);

        for ( wxDateTime::Month m = wxDateTime::Jan; m < wxDateTime::Inv_Month; wxNextMonth(m) )
            grid->SetColLabelValue(m, wxDateTime::GetMonthName(m));
            for ( int y = 0; y < 21; y++ )
            grid->SetCellValue(y, m, wxString::Format(“%.2f”, (float)rand() / RAND_MAX));


class MyApp : public wxApp
    virtual bool OnInit()
        (new MyFrame)->Show();
        return true;

I have been known to be the worst typist. Do not be offended by it as I like to bang stuff out and put priorty of what I do over typing. Maybe one day I can get a full time copy editor to help out. Do note I prefer videos as they are much easier to produce so check out my many video at
