wxWidgets is a C++ library that lets developers create applications for Windows, Mac OS X, Linux and other platforms with a single code base. It has popular language bindings for Python, Perl, Ruby and many other languages, and unlike other cross-platform toolkits, wxWidgets gives applications a truly native look and feel because it uses the platform's native API rather than emulating the GUI. It's also extensive, free, open-source and mature.

  • wxWidgets is great and stuff. But I can't report bug because wxTrac is not sending confirmation email. In 3.0.2 wxTextCtrl with MSW is broken - EVT_CONTEXT_MENU event table handler not invoked (default context menu showed), EVT_MOUSE not send if not on text, cursor is blinking between arrow and text selection-like when mouse moved. 3.0.1 works fine.

  • Thanks for the guys behind the projects. wxWidgets is really good and excellent framework either for gui and non gui. Recommend for those who looking for the complete library to build multi platform application. Documentation is now getting much better and comprehensive and very easy to navigate. And also there are several RAD tools to build the gui for the choice .......... Keep good effort.!!

  • It was a bit of a rough start using this framework because my project involved a custom build in Visual C++ / wxMSW as my intro to wxWidets despite shaking off mainly using C# for the past several years. However, after using it for a couple weeks now I must say that by and large this is an excellent framework with a lot of hard work put into it.

  • Very good API, eases development of cross-platform apps a lot.
