XRC Solutions

I chose to create the Preferences dialog with the least amount of code. I set the Name attribute in the XRC file to the path in the CPANPLUS::Configure object. Foe example: The ‘conf’ section has the key ‘show_startup_tip’, so the name of the control is ‘conf/show_startup_tip’. During creation of the control, the name is converted into code, then eval()’ed. Here’s where it got really complicated: There is no post-creation code in wxWidgets, so I searched high and low for some way to overload a built-in method for the control. There is no post-creation code, so I looked into the types of events that were available. There it was: EVT_WINDOW_CREATE(). So I managed to get all this working with just a bit of code.  If you wish to see the code, go to http://wxcpan.googlecode.com
