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

http://superuser.com/questions/196197/installing-wxpython-via-pip-or-easy-install

 

Download wxWidgets from site (I downloaded v3.1)

I tried standard with latest GCC compiler

./configure

make install  (this takes a long time!)

make

 

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; \

done

 

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

/Users/quantlabsnet/Documents/cpp/wxWidgets-3.1.0/lib/wx/include/osx_cocoa-unicode-3.1/wx

 

Include director for headers (.h)

/Users/quantlabsnet/Documents/cpp/wxWidgets-3.1.0/include/wx

 

 

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

http://wiki.wxpython.org/InstallingOnUbuntuOrDebian

 

https://wiki.wxwidgets.org/Installing_and_configuring_under_Ubuntu

 

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

 

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

/Users/quantlabsnet/Documents/cpp/wxWidgets-3.1.0/samples/image

make all

 

It worked! You go to directory of:

/Users/quantlabsnet/Documents/cpp/wxWidgets-3.1.0/samples

 

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

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

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.

 

Another tip for Mac OSX with Eclipse
