kandi X-RAY | wxlua Summary

wxlua is a C++ library typically used in Programming Style applications. wxlua has no bugs, it has no vulnerabilities and it has low support. You can download it from GitHub.

wxLua is a Lua wrapper for the cross-platform wxWidgets GUI library. It allows developers to create applications for Windows, macOS, and Linux using Lua and supports Lua 5.1, 5.2, 5.3, 5.4, and LuaJIT. Unlike other cross-platform toolkits, wxWidgets (and by extension wxlua) gives applications a native look and feel as it uses the platform's native API rather than emulating the GUI. wxLua can be used to create a wide range of applications, from simple, but useful scripts (you can find a variety of examples in the samples directory) to a fully functional IDE (like ZeroBrane Studio). The library provides the ability to create complex user interface dialogs, file and image manipulation, drawing, sockets, displaying HTML, printing, and many others. You can use as much or as little of wxWidgets as you like and C++ developers can trim down the size the bindings by turning off preprocessor directives.

            wxExecuted process is not deleted when main window exits
            Asked 2017-May-21 at 12:20

            I am using wxLua with wxWidgets 2.8.12 for Windows. In the following code, I try to asynchronously execute some command and redirect its output.

            The problem is, if I close main window before child process terminates, the child process is not deleted. I could still see "tree.com" process inside Windows Task Manager after this wxLua app exits.

            What is the problem with my code below?



            Answered 2017-May-21 at 12:20

            You don't kill the child process, so it continues running, why shouldn't it? If you don't want this to happen, you need to Kill() it explicitly using its PID.

            BTW, please also update to wxWidgets 3.0, especially as you're using Lua, there shouldn't be any compatibility concerns, but you would be using a supported version with a lot of new features and bug fixes compared to the 10+ year old 2.8.

            How would I create a gui in lua without the use of libraries like that of wxLua?
            Asked 2017-Apr-28 at 04:47

            In my lack of experience I'm not sure if I can ask this in such a way that can be understood.

            Basically, I want to make a user interface using raw lua. Is this even possible? If not, how does wxLua create a gui? Does it use another language with a built in GUI library?

            I've been trying to figure this out for some time and never find a real answer.

            Thanks for the help ahead of time!

            It is possible by using the FFI module of Luajit which can invoke a platform API directly. That is the "raw lua" way to make a user interface.
