RE: Vaiidators
Message ID:
Hi James,
There's quite a lot of code around.  When the Wiki comes back up, I'll point
you there.
Mark's code is particularly clean and easy to read.
The problem with production code is that it runs to many modules and
dependencies, which often require specific hardware and software
Meanwhile people have put stuff on Perl Monks if you want to have a look.
I was just about to say do a search on wxPerl on PerlMonks, but I see it
returns a huge search, much more than it ever used to, so do a search on
"wxPerl tutorial" and it'll return some working code.

Yea, I know I need to start using sizers. They just seem like so much extra
complexity for small example programs. I did port the wxBook sizer examples,
so I have something to look at. I haven't used Glade yet. I think I
downloaded it awhile back.

It would be nice to have a real, non-trivial production example to refer to.
There is a wide gap between demos/examples and the real world. So, for now,
I mostly read posts. Someday maybe I'll be able to contribute.

Probably a cleaner way to do some of it, but one step at a time. :)

It's cool, sadly, I don't think you can do any more with validator.
You should be able to do most of your layout with sizers.  I'm afraid they
are a bit painful, but they will automatically scale depending on your
screen resolution.
You can automatically generate them in a number of languages including Perl
with wxGlade (which is a Python app).
Good luck,
