Problems with DetachPane on floating windows

Postby abligh on Tue Apr 18, 2006 2:43 pm

I have floating wxPanel managed by wxAUI.

When I want to destroy a panel, I do this:

pFrameManager->DetachPane(pPanel);
pFrameManager->Update();
pPanel->Destroy();

which I think should work. However, if the panel is floating, there appears to be a problem, in that as far as I can tell the floating window containing the panel (the wxFloatingPane) never gets destroyed.

What seems to happen is DetachPane calls m_panes.RemoveAt() which removes it from the list of panes. This prevents the Update routine doing what happens when (say) Float() is turned off, and doing a reparent to the main frame and destroying the wxFloatingPane.

I think DetachPane() should be checking for m_panes.Item(i).p_frame and if it is non-null, doing the reparent and destroy (as per Update()) before it removes it from the m_panes array, because Update() will never get to do this afterwards.

What do you think? I can produce a patch if necessary

Agreed. I'll make it perform this behavior. I'm glad we caught this before 0.9.2.

Thanks,
Ben
