How to Add a wxMenuBar to a Form?

Postby ColleenKobe » Tue Feb 06, 2018 5:36 pm

I'm using wxCrafter to create a workspace with two forms. I would like to have a menu bar on both forms. wxCrafter automatically put a menu bar on the first form for me. In CodeLite (version 11.0.7), the Workspace View, the wxCrafter tab, and after expanding the entire menu: m_Menubar appears directly below "MainFrameBaseClass." Not inside a sizer.

My problem is that I can't figure out how to add a menu bar on the second form.

Here are three ways I tried to add a menu bar to the second form.

1. In CodeLite, I clicked the wxCrafter tab. I highlighted the form name. I looked at the Designer pane and clicked on the Menu/Toolbar tab. The menu bar icon is disabled.

2. In CodeLite, I clicked the wxCrafter tab. I RIGHT-CLICKED the form name. Thirteen options appeared, starting with "Generate Code," "Add wxTimer," and "Add wxTaskBarIcon." None mentioned a wxMenuBar.

3. In CodeLite, I clicked the wxCrafter tab. I highlighted the form name. I right-clicked the first item under the form name, which was a boxSizer. I went through the items in the pop-up box, hoping to find "wxMenuBar." I did not find anything about wxMenuBar.

Suggestions on how to add a menu bar to the second form?

Thanks!

In the wxCrafter tree view, select the Frame top level (only frame forms can have menu bar in wxCrafter)
Next, In the designer, select the tab "Menu / ToolBar" and click on the wxMenuBar
