Utter newbie problem. Under
Boa Constructor 0.3.1 (or 0.3.0 or 0.2.3, tried them all)
nothing resembling the Designer Button shows up in the Editor pallette or anywhere else. What's happening?
Here is a newsgroup which is helpful too:
Just recently discussed there:
> I am testing Boa on my Mandrake linux (10.0). After the installation I tried to follow the help file but it seems that the major component "designer" is no where to be found. (there's no icon for me to click to show it).
I've read all the replies in this thread and I am just as baffled as
all the others that replied.
The only thing I can think of is that you may not be aware that Boa's
menus and toolbar is dependent on the currently active file in the Editor.
So e.g. if you have a new wxFrame module as the active file, the Designer
should be available via File->Frame Designer, the Designer toolbar button
or by pressing F12.
I have no other ideas, sorry,
Bingo! Many thanks for the pointer, and especially for the quick response.
I found the same problem and it is because the
string must be at the top of the file -- (wxFrame1 would be whatever name you gave to your wxFrame). If you put this string back when Boa is open you must exit and restart Boa to get the Designer button back.
I don't remember deleting the string from my file but I must have with out thinking it was required to be there.
To check if there are other problems with the files format, just add another wxFrame and see if the Designer button comes up for the new file. If it does your know there is something wrong with your file. Compare the files to see what is wrong.
