wxAuiToolbar check and radio issues

Postby jacmoe on Sun Feb 22, 2009 7:58 am

Hi!
First of all: thank you for an excellent library! :)

However:
Why is wxITEM_RADIO not supported in a wxAuiToolBar?
And why is wxITEM_CHECK buttons not showed in the overflow dropdown list?

I can get around the first problem by setting all items in a radio group to wxITEM_CHECK, and then manually check/uncheck buttons in a handler. That's tedious, but I suppose it works OK.
I tried with a regular wxToolBar, but it flickers like mad. The wxAuiToolBar doesn't flicker at all. So I'd rather use that. :wink:
I am surprised that no-one else seems to be having this issue. (Besides the two on wxWidgets forum, whose topics are left unanswered).

I hope that your reply would be: We will fix it. :)
But, at the very least I'd like to hear why it is the way it is. :wink:

By the way: This is on Windows Vista. And wxWidgets 2.9.0 (SVN) Haven't run it on Linux, yet.

Hi,

The reason that wxITEM_RADIO doesn't work is that it's not implemented yet. The next release of wx is happening in a matter of a few days, which means that I don't have the time to implement it by the next release.

Would you consider implementing it and sending a patch? If so, we can get this all squared away for the next 2.8.10 and 2.9.0. If not, just let me know. I can't imagine that the implementation would be too hard.

Sorry about the long delay in answering - for some reason I wasn't notified. :(

Thanks for your answer - I'll see what I can do, when and if I get some time.
I really need this feature, so it would probably be easier for me to fix it, than trying to kludge around the issue.
Well, we'll see. :)

I surprised myself, and actually did it. :D

Was a small change, and since it's in auibar.cpp, it's not touching the interface at all.

I upload it here.

Do you want me to upload it to a tracker somewhere?
Maybe on wxWidgets?

Cheers! :)
