Message1. Easy programming with wxW + DevC++ ?

Is there an easy way to make GUI programs with wxW + Dev C++ ?

I've been trying to figure this thing out, but just can't get a grip of things.

First of all, I wan't to use graphical IDE to make the GUI. I don't want to write the coordinates of my buttons and other stuff.

I don't wan't to manually add all my events and other things to my code to make it work.

Is this impossible with wxW + Dev C++ ? Developing GUI programs like this is just so slow and difficult, that I'd rather go and buy Visual Studio or Borland Builder.

Yes, but you need the wxDevCpp.exe for this.
But I didn't try yet.

http://g.yi.org/f.php?f=10339 here you can get the zip archive.

Just install dev-cpp, than update to the newest version and then copy the devcpp.exe from wxdevdpp in the folder where you have installed devcpp.

You're wrong about this. I thought like you before forcing my spirit to dive into wxWidgets. ;) It's really very easy to code, it's like the awt/swing in java. You never need to specify coordinates, here you use "sizer" : it's a magic thing to layout the controls and align them very easily.
Of course you have to write all the code yourself but... it's not so much code comparing to using the MFC or the Windows API... And the code of wxWidgets is simple and pure C++, not the C obscure functions of the Windows API...

Try coding with wxWidgets, you'll like it, for sure! ;)

Hi!
May I point out that there actually is a good tool for visualy creating dialogs, frames and panels using sizers: wxGlade!
In my opinion it's better than the commercial ones and even if it's a beta it works pretty well.

If it was hard to write, it should be hard to read!- Do. Or do not. There is no try!

Morrigu, I have tried a few other free GUI application frameworks, wxWidgets is the best and I find it VERY easy to use. Sizers are a difficult (and essential)concept to grasp, it took me a while to understand how to use them. Visit wxwidgets.org, download the tutorials and take a look at sample applications. There is a lot of information about wxWidgets on the web, don't get frustrated and don't give up.
