wxShapeFramework (wxSF) is a software library/framework based on wxWidgets which allows easy development of software applications manipulating with graphical objects (shapes) like various CASE tools, technological processes modeling tools, etc.
- Create charts interactively in your wxWidgets applications
- Serialize/deserialize charts via XML to any stream
- Support for Undo/Redo
- Support for Copy/Cut/Paste
- Support for drag and drop operations
- Printing support

wxShapeFramework fills an essential gap in the wxWidgets library. The framework is very intuitive to use in almost all respects, and the online documentation is generally good. As a framework it provides a rich set of base classes that can be used and adapted as required. However many of the base classes are pretty polished so it can be used 'out of the box' for many applications. AFAIK it is the work of a single developer so updates might not be very frequent (maybe 1 per year) however it is reasonably stable and the library source code is quite easy to follow allowing for any small defects to be corrected by the user. There are still one or two rough edges when using the wxGraphicsContext on MSW, but hopefully these will be addressed in a future release.
Very useful. Thanks.
