I changed few lines of source code before to get it compiled on ARM.

Hi Joshy,

Can you please share the diffs?

The little hair I have left is turning grey as well :)

thank you St_W
downloaded mdTypes and placed the md folder in the wxFBE folder, now all I need is to build the wxWiget library, seems to be unavailable using apt-get.

unfortunately it looks like it depends on wx-c which I was unable to build, any help appreciated.

Yes, unfortunately wxWidgets is C++ only so wx-c (a C wrapper) is needed. I've built a Linux binary years ago, but can't find the build artefacts right now. In a previous post in this thread I described the dependencies in a little bit more detail: http://www.freebasic.net/forum/viewtopi ... 22#p211122
Altogether I can't really recommend to use wxFBE on modern systems as its basis wx-c is a bit old, buggy and limited.

//edit: found the wx-c stuff: https://svn.freebasic-portal.de/svn/wx/
The repo contains some build instructions and pre-built binaries; however, I don't know whether they are compatible with the latest wxFBE version since I modified wx-c a bit. They are based on wxWidgets 2.8.12. The wx-c source, however, was updated and aims to be compatible to wxW 2.9.5 - I've no idea whether that really worked, though. The generated FB headers in there maybe won't work either - I was experimenting with automatic C++ -> FB wrapper generation + header generation back then.

Command: "Pause Console"
This command does not work for displaying a run-time error message (obtained with the -exx option of the compiler).
This is probably due to the method chosen, by adding a module destructor (containing a "Sleep"), because I think that the run-time error message is sent only after executing the module destructor.

srvaldez.
wx-c
Is that related to wxwidgets?
I managed to compile version 3.1.0 with mingw (gcc 4.7.2).
However for fbide I was unable to compile wxwidgets 2.6.2,(even with the recommended lower gcc version), I was short of only one library file.
So I couldn't get an fbide .exe.
(I was trying to fix the lcase compiler options problem)
I used the given makefiles and tweaked the gcc configuration file for fbide.
Obviously I didn't tweak correctly yet.

I found wxFBE very comfortable to use . Now it was easy to create windows with the designer, save the code and alter it to my needs. Maybe it is easier because i did many parts of my project before with FBEdit, Firefly and RapidQ. The big advantage of wxFBE is, it works for both Win and Linux. Thats great.
