Examples

The following example shows a simple implementation that utilizes wxAuiManager to manage three text controls in a frame window:

 class MyFrame : public wxFrame {
public:
MyFrame(wxWindow* parent) : wxFrame(parent, -1, _("wxAUI Test"),
wxDefaultPosition, wxSize(800,600),
wxDEFAULT_FRAME_STYLE)
{
// notify wxAUI which frame to use
m_mgr.SetManagedWindow(this);

// create several text controls
wxTextCtrl* text1 = new wxTextCtrl(this, -1, _("Pane 1 - sample text"),
wxDefaultPosition, wxSize(200,150),
wxNO_BORDER | wxTE_MULTILINE);

wxTextCtrl* text2 = new wxTextCtrl(this, -1, _("Pane 2 - sample text"),
wxDefaultPosition, wxSize(200,150),
wxNO_BORDER | wxTE_MULTILINE);

wxTextCtrl* text3 = new wxTextCtrl(this, -1, _("Main content window"),
wxDefaultPosition, wxSize(200,150),
wxNO_BORDER | wxTE_MULTILINE);

// add the panes to the manager
m_mgr.AddPane(text1, wxLEFT, wxT("Pane Number One"));
m_mgr.AddPane(text2, wxBOTTOM, wxT("Pane Number Two"));
m_mgr.AddPane(text3, wxCENTER);

// tell the manager to "commit" all the changes just made
m_mgr.Update();
}

~MyFrame()
{
// deinitialize the frame manager
m_mgr.UnInit();
}

private:
wxAuiManager m_mgr;
};

// our normal wxApp-derived class, as usual
class MyApp : public wxApp {
public:

bool OnInit()
{
wxFrame* frame = new MyFrame(NULL);
SetTopWindow(frame);
frame->Show();
return true;
}
};

DECLARE_APP(MyApp);
IMPLEMENT_APP(MyApp);
