How To Use My Own Sizers

Postby HzD_Byte on Sun Feb 12, 2006 1:18 am

I'm need to create a pane with two controls: a text control and a button. Then, i want to resize them automatically with sizer.

I've use code (in wxFrame's constructor):

// ------------------------
wxSizer *sizerInput = new wxBoxSizer(wxHORIZONTAL);
wxPanel *inputPanel = new wxPanel(this, wxID_ANY);
input = new wxTextCtrl(inputPanel, ID_INPUT, wxEmptyString, wxDefaultPosition, wxDefaultSize, wxTE_PROCESS_ENTER);
inputOk = new wxButton(inputPanel, ID_INPUTOK, wxT("OK"));
sizerInput->Add(input, 1, wxALL, 1);
sizerInput->Add(inputOk, 0, wxALL, 1);
manager.AddPane(inputPanel, wxBOTTOM, wxT("Input panel"));
inputPanel->SetAutoLayout(true);
inputPanel->SetSizer(sizerInput);
sizerInput->Fit(inputPanel);
sizerInput->SetSizeHints(inputPanel);
sizerInput->Layout();
// ------------------------

And it doesn't properly resize itself automatically :( What's wrong?

More exactly, i think that it's because parent sizer in the pane's frame must add this "control" as: sizerMain->Add(sizerBottom, 0, wxGROW, 0);
but not as sizerMain->Add(sizerBottom, 1, wxGROW, 0);

Is there a known solution?

Well I'd do the AddPane at the end, but you definitely also need to call manager.Update() after it.

Whenever I've had a bug, I've pasted the code I wanted to test into the sample application and seen if it misbehaves there too. This is in general a good way of finding there is no wxAUI bug at all :-)

Hi,
I have same problem.

[wxWidgets 2.8.10]
Create a panel:
Code: Select all
wxBoxSizer* bSizer10;
    bSizer10 = new wxBoxSizer( wxHORIZONTAL );

    wxTextCtrl* m_textCtrl2 = new wxTextCtrl( panel, wxID_ANY, wxEmptyString, wxDefaultPosition, wxDefaultSize, 0 );
    bSizer10->Add( m_textCtrl2, 0, wxALL, 5 );

    wxButton* m_button2 = new wxButton( panel, wxID_ANY, wxT("MyButton"), wxDefaultPosition, wxDefaultSize, wxBU_EXACTFIT );
    bSizer10->Add( m_button2, 0, wxALIGN_CENTER_VERTICAL, 5 );

    panel->SetSizer( bSizer10);
    panel->Layout();
    return panel;


Add to AUI:
Code: Select all
m_UI.AddPane(TopCenterPanel(), wxAuiPaneInfo().
        Name(wxT("TCP_ID")).
        CenterPane().
        PaneBorder(false).
        Resizable(false)
        );


Small window size:

Large window size:

And, PaneBorder(false) not works if panel not CenterPane(). I need a layout has a top panel with no PaneBorder and no CenterPane. But, I cannot remove PaneBorder by PaneBorder(false).

Thanks so much.

Hi there,

Just as an FYI, CenterPane() doesn't mean "center this pane," but rather "be the center pane in the layout".

Did you try this?
Code: Select all
m_UI.AddPane(TopCenterPanel(), wxAuiPaneInfo().
        Name(wxT("TCP_ID")).
        Top().
        PaneBorder(false).
        Resizable(false)
        );

Also, did you make sure to call this?
Code: Select all
m_UI.Update()


All the best,
Ben

Is it?
Code: Select all
m_UI.AddPane(...);
m_UI.Update();
m_UI.AddPane(...);
m_UI.Update();
m_UI.AddPane(...);
m_UI.Update();
m_UI.AddPane(...);
m_UI.Update();
m_UI.AddPane(...);
m_UI.Update();
m_UI.AddPane(...);
...
m_UI.Update(); // <== END


I have only "m_UI.Update(); // <== END"

How about panel size? I try EVT_SIZE and m_UI.Update(), but it not works.
