Greetings Monks,

Unlike all the rest of the WxPerl objects, WxGrid->new() seems to return a scalar rather than a hashref (thus preventing me from subclassing it), as shown below.

use Wx qw(:everything ); use Wx::Grid; *Wx::App::OnInit = sub {1}; my $a = Wx::App->new; my $f = Wx::Frame->new( undef, -1,''); my $p= Wx::Panel->new($f,-1); my $s= Wx::ScrolledWindow->new($p,-1); #Grid derives from this my $g = Wx::Grid->new($p,-1); print "$p\n$s\n$g\n";
...which prints
Wx::Panel=HASH(0xdeadbeef) Wx::ScrolledWindow=HASH(0xbaddeed) Wx::Grid=SCALAR(0xfeeddad)
...under ActiveState 5.8.0 with WxPerl 0.15, using the 8xx PPM fom the WXPerl site.

There was no Wx_Grid defined in the distro's typemap, (everything else is a 'O_WXOBJECT') so I presumed this was the root of the problem, but as nobody here or on the WxPerl mailing list seems to have posted anything about this, I wondered if I was missing something?

Use:  <p> text here (a paragraph) </p>
and:  <code> code here </code>
to format your post; it's "PerlMonks-approved HTML":

  • Are you posting in the right place? Check out Where do I post X? to know for sure.
  • Posts may use any of the Perl Monks Approved HTML tags. Currently these include the following:
    <code> <a> <b> <big> <blockquote> <br /> <dd> <dl> <dt> <em> <font> <h1> <h2> <h3> <h4> <h5> <h6> <hr /> <i> <li> <nbsp> <ol> <p> <small> <strike> <strong> <sub> <sup> <table> <td> <th> <tr> <tt> <u> <ul>
  • Snippets of code should be wrapped in <code> tags not <pre> tags. In fact, <pre> tags should generally be avoided. If they must be used, extreme care should be taken to ensure that their contents do not have long lines (<70 chars), in order to prevent horizontal scrolling (and possible janitor intervention).
  • Want more info? How to link or How to display code and escape characters are good places to start.
