This is a wonderful tutorial which bring me to the world of wxWidget step by step, Thanks! As a beginner myself, I really learned a lot from this page. I think I can create some video tutorials ( use Wink or other screen cast tools) to support these topics.

Using Close() in an OnClose() handler

Doing this makes the program crash when closing via close symbol. http://forums.wxwidgets.org/viewtopic.php?t=34967&p=143167 Somebody forgot to change the tutorial or is this intentional?


FIXING Close() per above

in the section

   void plainFrame::OnClose(wxCloseEvent& event)

instead of inserting Close(); I inserted:

       Destroy();

and that seemed to do it.

Question: The tutorial doesn't show the same screens or options, should I take notes on what I'm finding "now" and make appropriate corrections? They could always be backed out.

I'm hoping as I go on with the tutorial, it will explain why so much of the code is commented out

  //(*.....
  //*)

and why such things as the event table are empty (I assumed I had to add

  EVT_CLOSE  (              plainFrame::OnClose)

but in fact after the simple frame would run and close properly, I changed this to:

  // EVT_CLOSE  (              plainFrame::OnClose)

and it still closes properly (I did a rebuild to make sure). I'm assuming F9 DOES what it says, i.e. compiles to incorporate my changes)
