Callback on Docking

Postby mihok on Tue Mar 16, 2010 11:19 am

Does the user have access to any callback when a pane is moved from one location to another and a docking occurs? If so, could someone please provide the details?

I have several panes visible, but one of them contains a computationally-intensive process. If I try to move a pane from one location to another and dock it in the new location, it will not succeed if the process is actively running. However, if I pause the process and then move the pane, everything is fine. I would like to simply put the pause, dock, resume sequence in a callback so that my users don't have to do this manually every time they want to move something. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

I'm sorry there is not a real wxEvent for this. There should be.

However, it turns out you still can do what you want to do. It's not hard and is relatively clean.

Derive a tiny class from wxAuiManager and simply override the following function:
Code: Select all
virtual bool ProcessDockResult(wxAuiPaneInfo& target,
                                   const wxAuiPaneInfo& new_pos);

Returning false from this function will prevent the move from happening, if I recall correctly. Otherwise, make sure to call the base class function to let it do its default processing.

All the best,
