Demo walkthrough of C++ open source wxWidgets wxFormsBuilder with Python

Here are my notes:

wxFormBuilder for Mac

As pointed out by @melto, a stable released version, 3.1.70, for os x works as well. The link to sourceforge http://sourceforge.net/projects/wxformbuilder/files/wxformbuilder/3.1.70/wxFormBuilder-3.1.dmg/download




This was also mentioned for Windows or Linux only



To install wxPython package into your Python on Mac OSX

brew install wxpython



Download wxWidgets from site (I downloaded v3.1)

I tried standard with latest GCC compiler


make install  (this takes a long time!)



When complete you will get this result but note where the new library resides:

if test ! -d /usr/local/include/wx-3.1/`dirname $f` ; then \

mkdir -p /usr/local/include/wx-3.1/`dirname $f`; \

fi; \

cp -fp ./include/$f /usr/local/include/wx-3.1/$f; \



Here is another set of library path (and include for the library)



Include director for headers (.h)




Another attempt to download/build wxWidgets on Ubuntu Linux  but Python





Configure Eclipse CDT https://wiki.wxwidgets.org/Eclipse


Instead I tried to make a sample project out of a project


make all


It worked! You go to directory of:



make all

This will make all sample projects executable


Description of samples here http://docs.wxwidgets.org/trunk/page_samples.html


Ones of interest: console, dialog, exec, image,layout, mdi (great layout components),

Menu, opengl/isosurf, richtext, sashtest, scroll, shaped, splitter (window), statbar, stc, thread, toolbar,xrc ,treelist, treectrl, listctrl, ribbon (another good gui)

++ many more

This may be better as a full on tutorial



Surprise from this tutorial:

Retrieving the settings on Mac OS X

If you have Mac OS X 10.4 or higher, it comes preinstalled with wxWidgets. Just open up a terminal and type:

It does include configuring help for Linux and Windows as well.
