Caption won't change when floating

Postby MrNiceGuy on Sun Nov 04, 2007 7:13 am

it may be, that I am doing something wrong but this is, what I noticed:
To change the caption of a floating frame I have to do

wxAuiPaneInfo& pa=m_mgr->GetPane(this);
iif (pa.IsOk()) {
if (pa.IsFloating()) {
wxFrame *f=wxDynamicCast(GetParent(), wxFrame);
if (f) f->SetTitle(str);

so I think, when changing the caption SetTitle() of the surrounding frame is not called.
Only after docking and undocking the right caption is shown without setting the title manually.

Another thing:
Perhaps wxFULL_REPAINT_ON_RESIZE should be set or changeable.(I did not find it)

Code: Select all
void MyFrame3::r333( wxCommandEvent& event ){
   wxAuiPaneInfo &pane(m_mgr.GetPane(wxT("EPane1")));
   pane.Caption(event.GetString()); //changing title of caption
         pane.window->GetParent()->SetLabel(pane.caption); //refresh title of floating frame
   this->SetTitle(event.GetString()); //changing title of main window

it's worked code - event invoked from wxTextCtrl placed in same Pane
work with floated frame too

maybe need fix it in source code of wxAUI - Will do patch someone ?
Let improove it together
