I sort of understand the design of wxformbuilder and the base class you don’t mess with. I like the utility Generate Inherited Classes, but according to this tutorial :
wxFormBuilder can even do a one-time generation of a bare-bones inherited class with it’s useful “Generate Inherited Class” dialog.
I found a relatively fresh post where this is apparently still the case http://forum.wxformbuilder.org/index.php?topic=443.0. To this, newbies eyes this is a limitation when compare to the creature comforts of the vb6 IDE. This seems strange to me, but perhaps, I should just work with this a while and give them the benefit of the doubt.
I still need to study up on wxwidgets. My preference is to make good first impression by sounding somewhat intelligent on the wxformbuilder forum.
I think this is a good place to start:http://zetcode.com/tutorials/wxwidgetstutorial/
