Hi Robin and all,
It’s been a long time since I posted anything meaningful related to wxPython, but I still use it every day and now even more than I ever thought possible.
I’ll try and give a bit of context to my issue. My colleague and I have been (finally) given Some time to finish, polish and complete a complex, big application we have been working on on and off (mostly off) for 8 years.
The application is written in Python 2.7 and it uses wxPython 22.214.171.124. Please don’t tell me to move to Python 3 or use Phoenix, we don’t have the resources nor the time for a move like that - there’s only two of us, and we are not software programmers, we’re reservoir engineers.
That said, I could really, really use one of the features of wx.FileDialog that allows you to add extra controls/widgets to the native file dialog - namely the SetExtraControlCreator method. It seems to me this method is not available in wxPython 126.96.36.199, although the wxWidgets documentation states that it is new “since 2.9.0”. I may of course be wrong and I’d be so happy to be proven wrong.
Does anyone know if there is any Classic release - as close as possible to 188.8.131.52 - supporting this feature? If not available in any Classic release, how tough would it be to rebuild wxPython on Windows using MinGW and add this method?
Thank you in advance for any suggestions.
