RE: [wxperl-users] wxPerl and Printing

VB users would rate things like Active Reports and VPE (Virtual Print =

uses, but obviously depends on your ability to use ActiveX controls in =
your project. =20

Subject: [wxperl-users] wxPerl and Printing

Hi All,

This is a fairly broad topic, but I am interested to hear what
experiences other users have had with printing from wxPerl applications,
as well as PDF generation.

I find the whole printing architecture cumbersome and difficult to use.
I know that there are the wxHTML classes to use, but I find these quite
restrictive without the ability to install custom tag handlers to
enhance or override existing handlers.

I have researched external routines/applications like Crystal, FOP,
RenderX, etc, ad nauseum but nothing suffices due to functionality or
cost restrictions.

I have some very basic print modules that I have battled to setup but
find adding new functionality a real test.

Has anyone else been down this path? I would be interested to hear where
you ended up.

[wxperl-users] printing a PDF from wxPerl
Not sure if this is an obvious question I am just missing or not, but.... We generate server-side PDFs and then pass them to wxPerl clients. By default we just open them with the appropriate mime-type application on the client platform (so evince/xpdf on gtk, Preview on OSX, Acrobat on Win32). The issue now is if we can print without having to open first. For Linux and OSX, worst case we can just do a system call to "lp filename.pdf" and everything is fine, but not sure how to print a PDF in Win32 without first opening it in Acrobat. I noticed that Mark Warde...

There are various problems: 1 - I don't have a Mac, so someone else shoild work on it ( any takers? ;-) ) 2 - wxWindows on MacOS X is still not as stable as the Windows/GTK ports, though it is progressing steadily, and the developers are generally very responsive WRT bugreports; on MacOS 9 it should be pretty stable though 3 - On MacOS 9 you need to use Codewarrior which isn't free If you want to give it a tr...

[wxperl-users] wxPerl Wiki => wxPerl Kwiki
Hello all, Once upon a time I installed a Wiki, called it the wxPerl Wiki and didn't look at it anymore. I noticed that only a few people use it, it's been hacked a few times, and to make it work, at least yours truly should put more time and effort in it. This morning I started installing Kwiki, which is a far better Wiki platform than the Wiki that was installed. Apart from the UserPreferences page (working on it), everything works as it should. However, the data people entered in the old Wiki can't be converted to Kwiki automatically. Therefore I need your ...

RE: [wxperl-users] Re: wxValidator available via wxPerl
Dear Mattia (or others, if they can help), I've been delving into how to use wxValidators, and I think I understand the concept (and I like it!). However, I'm having real trouble deriving my own validator (called, unimaginitively, myValidator) from Wx::PlValidator. >From the wxWindows documentation, all validators must implement a Clone method. I have tried implementing a Clone method, which I can see getting called, but myValidator's Validate, TransferFromWindow, and TransferToWindow never seem to get called. Here is my code (with the methods apart from Clone do...

Mattia, Thanks, as usual, for the to-the-point and quick support! If/when I manage to produce a useful validator, I would be more than happy to submit it.

RE: [wxperl-users] Re: wxValidator available via wxPerl #2
Dear Mattia, Thanks - this works a treat! I was so close... Anyway, now I'm up and running. I had noticed the 'Attempt to free unreferenced...' error - will await a fix. Now that I've got things working, what do you suggest/would you like? I feel that validators are the way to go when it comes to transferring data to/from controls (rather than explicit GetValue/SetValue calls all over the place) - I have had to implement a similar concept (though not as elegant) in a very large Perl/Tk application which we have developed. I see that you think we should create...
