"Yes, yes, yes! To anyone who has read The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy,
the solution isn't 42 but wxWidgets! I'm impressed. GUI programming couldn't be easier!"
Harald Kipp, Germany, November 2004
"It's simply great. I'm programming for GUIs since the
legendary GEM on CP/M. Except Java Swing, I never liked all
these bulky multi-platform libraries. But wxWidgets is different,
it's slim enough to provide a native look and feel on each

"wxWidgets is a very powerful and almost complete toolkit that will
reduce development times significantly. Response time of the wxWidgets
developers to found bugs is very quick. Active community. It's
fantastic that you can get a toolkit like this for free, even for

"I've been looking for a great GUI for C++ for 4 years.
I've tried Windows SDK, MFC, Qt, .... I decided to
change to Java, and found out that I didn't like it.
Then I found wxWidgets! It is exactly what I have been
looking for! In addition, it is cross platform, which
is what I wished I could do. Thank you so much for developing this!"
Armin Kurz, Eurocopter, September 2004
"Before wxWidgets I spent a lot of time implementing tools for processing our
SGML/XML and illustration documents in C and WIN32.
Since using wxWidgets, development is much faster, GUIs are easier to
implement and less errors remain hidden...
Requests for new functionality in the apps can be satisfied in half the
time or less than before.
I tried out other frameworks but wxWidgets is the very best I could find
suitable for my needs. You all did a very great job! Thank you!"
Robert, GRZ Software, July 2004
"I'd like to thank you for a great library; wxWidgets has made my programming life much easier.
MeshCam has been downloaded by several thousand people with no wx-related problems.
I'm glad I tried wx and left the world of MFC behind."
Ulrich, May 2004
"Last thursday I had a call from a very big chemicals company who wanted me to write a Windows
application. My only problem was that I had never written a line of code in C, C++ or used
the Win32 API before. Thx to wxWidgets I managed to write an OLAP tool using a SQLite database
within 3 days! I have never seen an API which was more comfortable to use. Great Job, Thx!"
Dan Fletcher, DogMelon, April 2004
"wxWidgets has been incredibly useful for us. Note Studio would probably not have been possible without it!"
Nick Dowell, February 2004
"Excellent - easy to get to grips with, excellent documentation.
Having a single cross-platform source tree is a dream. Keep up the good work!"
Jason Hanley, February 2004
"An excellent UI framework. I've been using the C++ interface
and it is extremely well organized, well documented, stable, and
easy to work with. I look forward to learning Python and
working with the Python interface as well. You guys are doing a

"I tried most of the avaliable toolkits, but either they were rudimentary, brain dead,
platform-dependent or required special metacompilers to be usable. ...I looked around what's available
today and heard of a lot of toolkits that claimed to be 'ideal' for my task. But in the end I returned to
wxWidgets; well-designed, clear and with 11 years of evolution still unbeatable."
Mark McCormack, December 2003
"I have been evaluating GUI toolkits for MS Windows dev. for
over a a few years now - commercially. I have looked at
wxWidgets, Qt, Fox, MFC, WTL, raw Win32, SmartWin, VB/C++/C# .NET Forms, bascially
anything worth looking at. I have come to the conclusion that wxWidgets is
by far the best 'rounded' choice - even just for MSW development. wxWidgets
just needs a few 'nice' extensions and it can easily compete with MFC/.NET.
The API is clean, predictable and fun! Well as fun as GUI work gets! ;o)
Congrats to all the developers to date."
David Sibai, October 2003
"The GUI part of the application [MantaPlot] was originally written in Visual Basic.
Since the project was a little too complex for Visual Basic (we hit a number of
referenced VB bugs or limitations throughout the development process), I
decided to port it to wxWidgets. To my amazement, it took me only a few hours
to get acquainted with wxWidgets, and a few days to port the whole application
to wxWidgets. The very intuitive class layout of wxWidgets allowed me as well
to cleanly add many new features with just a few lines of codes. In three
words: Get This Now! You have to try it to see how well it works. The
wxWidgets development team does deserve respect and congratulations. I am also
fluent in GTK, but wxWidgets is IMHO much much better."
Folker Schamel, July 2003
"A professional native look-and-feel of complex UI features
is crucial for our application. When we were looking for a professional GUI toolkit,
additional main criteria were portability and free availibility.
Easy interaction with a lot of low-level C++ code also
was an very important aspect, ruling out Java-based toolkits.
We came to the conclusion that wxWidgets definitely
is best GUI toolkit for our needs. And as bonus, wxWidgets provides a real clean and easy-to-use API.
This is an important aspect in commercial software development
which cannot be underestimated. The wxWidgets team has my respect!"
Tyler Mecham, January 2003
"Very intuitive and well documented. I can do everything with wxWidgets that I could do
with Qt and it doesn't cost thousands of dollars a year."
Eric Kidd, November 2002
"It's a gorgeous class library. I was able to build a decent Win32 GUI in a week, and port most
of it to Linux in another two days."
David Moore, November 2002
"I started working for a company in May, and my first responsibility was
porting an app from MFC/Visual C++ to wxWidgets/Mingw. The port
from MFC to wxWidgets took about a month for an app that's about 3 years
into development. What we've found with wxWidgets is that it's easier to
use, easier to maintain and easier to add new features. Part of the reason
for this is that it's possible, after a bit of research, to rapidly develop
dialogs BY HAND. Coming from MFC, you probably can't imagine how this is
possible, but it is. Since changing over, we have found that we can design, implement and begin
testing new features in days, rather than weeks, due to the much more
logical, readable layout of wxWidgets. All in all, wxWidgets was the best decision we
could have made."
Mitch Kapor, founder of Lotus Corp., October 2002 (about The Open Source Applications Foundation's
first product, a PIM code-named Chandler)
"Have I mentioned it's going to run on Macintosh, Linux, and Windows and will not require a server?
This is an ambitious goal, but we are convinced is possible to achieve using a cross-platform tool kit.

out that you can get comfortable with it in a day. Good online

Paul (in Slashdot article), October 2002
"wxWidgets is one of the most magnificent development projects in
existence and the fact we hear so little about it is shame upon
the technological press in general and the open source
information resources in particular.
wxWidgets has for years fullfilled the Java promise in C++:
write once, compile and run anywhere, natively. Their approach
to the cross-platform problem was always far superior than the
Java approach. ...More than nine years later those guys are still there
giving the community such a tool. Truly amazing."
Michael Montague, October 2002
"wxWidgets is the greatest thing *EVER*. With absolutely no code I was able to
make a fully resizeable panel that worked *perfectly*. I'm sure you
know exactly how long that would take in VB/MFC/C# or even the beloved
Builder and Delphi. Even if wxWidgets were a Win32 only library it would be totally amazing.
The fact that it supports so many other platforms is better than any
icing on any cake!"
Ted Turocy, September 2002
"wxWidgets 2.xx has been an absolute dream; putting together a nice interface has been quite
easy, and I'm especially pleased that I can do most of our development on *nix with
confidence that only minor issues will have to get cleaned up when we build on Windows."
Harald Schneider, August 2002
"I use wxWidgets as a GUI Toolkit for Python. Its stability, flexibility
and speed are the base of industrial strength cross-platform GUI
application design with interpreted languages like Python. Porting is
child's play. Thanks for this great piece of software!"
Alistair Carty, August 2002
"Excellent, stable and intuitive API. Very straightforward to learn and easy to
port Java, X11 and Win32 code to."
Don McComb, August 2002
"Thanks heaps for the best piece of software I've ever come across (wxWidgets)."
Chris Jones, July 2002
"I chose wxWidgets for a very much Windows-only application because of the simplicity of the API
compared to MFC and Win32 GDI programming. Aside from some minor mistakes in
the manual which confused me for a while, wxWin has been really easy to use
and increased my productivity immensely compared to using another framework."
Comment on Slashdot, July 2002
"wxWidgets is a great product. One of it's best features, IMHO, are all
the language bindings. It's very easy to prototype your app in wxPython,
then convert to a C/C++ app later."
Comment on Slashdot, July 2002
"Porting to wxWidgets is easy - I recently ported an MFC project at work to wxGTK on Solaris,
and changing all the MFC calls to wxWidgets calls only took a couple of hours for a 2 man-month project...
I've never had an easier porting experience. wxWidgets was intentially built to work like MFC
to make it easy to port, and they most certainly succeeded, with the notable exception of OLE support.
I ported a several man month project in a day or two, and none of it was hard or confusing,
it just amounted to looking up the equivalent functions in the help.
I could do the conversion much faster now because I wouldn't have to keep glancing at the web page."
Martin Ecker, July 2002
"I'd like to take the opportunity and say
a big thank you to all the wxWin developers and contributors. wxWidgets is the best
piece of software I have been using so far, and I can't believe that I haven't discovered
it earlier. I never thought that cross-platform development could be so easy and
simply cool. Great stuff :)"
Steve Bailey, June 2002
"Just wanted to commend you on wxWidgets. As I'm reading the code samples (the
checklistbox right now), I'm realizing that this is so intuitive and so
Java-like in some parts of it, especially with the way the layout works...
Very good work and thank you."
"I have used wxWidgets in the past very successfully on
multiple projects, and think it's the bee's knees. Thanks for everything!"
"Well, I'm using wxWidgets since 2 days and I'm already in love with it :)
The sizers saved me from writing a complete layout solution myself.
Great work! You guys rock!"

"wxWidgets is jaw dropping amazing. Community support from the mailing list is
extraordinary. Are you sure this is free?"
"I love wxWidgets. I can program 10 times faster
than with MFC, and almost everything works the
first time. And unlike MFC, there are (useful)
examples and documentation. Thanks to you guys
who did all the work to develop this framework.
From an article
in LinuxPlanet about porting a large image processing application
"ImageLinks now uses the Open Source version of wxWidgets for all its current GUI development.
Doing this ensures that everything interfaces cleanly and also makes it easier in the long run to add
other GUIs along the way because ImageLinks has access to all the source code."
"Hi, using wxWidgets (Windows or GTK in my case) is a pleasure, because it's great, and
also because the contributors always give nice and quick answers to the question, so
THANKS to all of you. Probably it's sometime good to say when you're happy about something."
"With wxWidgets the GUI was easy to fit onto what was originally
a command-line application. We explored doing it with MFC and
quickly found too many complications. wxWidgets is much
cleaner. It was easy to have the GUI in the main thread and the
computations in a second thread. Also, we found that wxWidgets
uses significantly fewer cycles (over an order of magnitude) to
maintain the GUI than MFC using this kind of set up.
wxWidgets combined with wxDesigner makes it easy to build nice
GUIs, leaving us more time to focus our efforts on the 'business
end' of the code."
Juergen D. Geltinger
"I just wanted to say Thank You for such a great library!
We made a nice (commercial :-) application with
wxWin-2.3.1 on a machine running a "hard realtime" OS
...While the data-acqusition is done in realtime by the
application's RT-kernelmodule all the user-interfacing
and data storage is done by a wxWidgets frontend
application. There are a lot of threads involved to get
the job done ;-)
I never had any problems with wxWidgets in this
application. This is caused by some very gifted
programmers which devote themselves to the
creation of the best free multi-platform UI library
around. (How many hours a day are you sitting
in front of your screen, Vadim? George? Julian?
Since we're going to deliver the system in a
couple of days I thought the community should
know what else is possible with wxWidgets,

"wxWidgets is really good. I am using it for a shareware application. IT IS AMAZING!!!
It is professional because it has the little things (Internationalization and printing).
I also found wxWidgets extremely intuitive. It only took me a day to become fluent in wxWidgets.
Ok I know MFC, GTK and QT (read the full documentation) so I sorta knew what to look for.
wxWidgets could be worth your time to look at."
A poster to wx-users list says:
"Thanks to the whole wxwin team for this library/platform.
I have been doing software development for 35 years, but I am
certain that without wxwin, this windows thing would have had
me searching for a new career."

"A year back when trying to find out if I should choose QT or
wxWidgets, I noticed very poor reliablity with QT, I did
experience several cores just by compiling the samples that came
with QT on all *nix plateforms. (Solaris,HP-UX,IRIX,DUX) I
remember my Solaris box often cored after playing with QT
widgets... However, QT was _rock_solid_ on Linux, and windows.
wxWidgets is far more a complete set GUI and more including I/O,
networking, ODBC (database)! The nicest part about wxWidgets is
the native look, of other *nix apps, on the unix world, which
come with Motif R1.2 or better, using the Motif build of
wxWidgets gives a nice native look, and smaller executables! By
linking with already found Motif libraries DSOs! I recalled some
sample QT examples were like several megabytes! On non-x86 *nix
For someone that has been working with wxWidgets, and tried QT,
by far, I think wxWidgets wins hands down. I don't know why
it isn't as "famous" as QT.
My .02cents... "
affegott on slashdot.org
"Overall, I was very impressed with wxWidgets. They took on a
very complicated task, and it appears to be working out. I used
wxWidgets 2.2.7(Win 2000 and WinNT) and wxGTK (Solaris 7 and
Redhat 7) on a fairly complex GUI... and had NO problems."

"TortoiseCVS uses wxWidgets for very much a Windows only app, simply
because the API is way better than anything else. ...Having the source code is great!
Thanks for all your hard work making wxWidgets. I hope it takes off exponentially, and everyone stops
using anything else."
Institut Zuverlässigkeit und Mikrointegration
"wxWidgets is a good GUI library if you're working on cross platform
solutions using C++. The API has improved a lot on the way from
wxWidgets 1.* to wxWidgets 2, e.g. includes up to date layout constructs
(sizers). The API is still easy enough to be incorporated into other
languages (like wxPython or our wxLisp)."
Carnegie Mellon University Computer Music Group
"I've written nontrivial applications using all of the
following interfaces: MacOS API, MacOS PowerPlant, Win32, MFC,
Java AWT, Java Swing/JFC, wxWidgets and of all of those, I've found wxWidgets to be the best
by far! Audacity is currently over 25,000 lines of code,
and I have not once regretted my decision to use wxWidgets.
That said, I think that there is a lot of room for improvement
for wxWidgets. I am very committed to Mac development, and
right now wxMac is not stable enough. I have had to fix
numerous bugs in wxMac myself and work around many others.
Non-Mac developers could help a lot by working on the interface
to wxWidgets 2.3 and beyond to make it more consistent with
the differences of the MacOS. For example, it would be nice to
have native support for the Apple menu and to know if there is
a single menubar for the whole application, or one for every
window. Note that KDE supports a single menubar for the whole
application, which is another reason this could be useful.
I also have to do a small amount of porting when I switch
between Linux/GTK and Windows. Events are generated in a slightly
different order, and behaviors are not identical (when you refresh
a frame, GTK erases it, Windows doesn't).
Still, having the source means I can track down these problems
quickly and work around them easily - much more easily than it
would be if I didn't have wxWidgets to begin with."
"First GUI project and combo of Python/wxPython/wxWidgets was actually
fun. wxBook please ;-) more documentation will make wx first rate."
i3mainz, FH Mainz
"Well, we would have rated it as 'excellent' but currently there's
a lack of documentation in some areas and we have to fumble with
the source to get things going but beyond that, no problems.
Currently we're able to develop under Windows then copy the
code to our UNIX machines and after some minor tweaks it compiles
and runs with the same functionality. That's true multi-platform

"Boy, I have to tell you, my wife is getting sick of hearing me
tell her every day how much I love wxWidgets! Now that I'm
pretty deeply into it, I must say you (and Rob and Vadim et al)
have done a FANTASTIC job! It's *so* much easier to understand
and use than MFC, and it has actually been quite straightforward
to convert my existing MFC & WinSDK code. I've done several
thousand lines already, and there's a lot more to come. I'm
actually looking forward to it."
"My conclusion is that after writing multiplatform apps since 1976, wxWidgets is the
framework which comes closest to the promise write once, run everywhere
(translate this to the 'holy grail of SW development')."
"I've worked with a few other cross-platform libraries that were free
but none had so many classes available, were so close to a really native look
and feel without compromising ease of coding and were THAT easy to port. Some
classes had major drawbacks because they were severely limited in order to keep
cross platform compilation and some didn't provide enough functionality.
wxWidgets is simply the best I've seen so far and free."
of the National Human Genome Research Institute
"I would like to complement you again on
the excellent system that you created. The ease of use and the
straight-forward methods and calls has made wxWidgets a true
pleasure to program with."

"First, I would like to say that wxWidgets 2 is
AWESOME!!!!!! I have been using c++Builder and Delphi for the past several
years, but have been following the development of wxWidgets for some 3 years
or so (I remember when talk of wxWin 2 began). Well now that wxWin 2 is
approaching completion, I have started using it more seriously, and I must
say that although this framework is not RAD in the sense of C++Builder and
Delphi (soon to be though with wxStudio), it certainly is not far behind.
This is far easier to use than MFC and almost as fast as using C++Builder or
Delphi. For example, in just two days (and I'm a psychology PhD student, so
programming is only a part-time hobby for me) I have up and running an MDI
doc/view application, something that would have taken god knows how long with
MFC. I would like to congratulate Julian and the rest of the team for
creating a wonderful library."
the University of Ohio
"I didn't have to change one line of code when I recompiled on a

to use that I've come across so far. All things considered, the learning
curve is really rather small."
"I am doing a real project using wxWidgets [and wxPython]. I'm finding it a powerful

than Tk: cleaner, clearer, nice... In all, I'm thoroughly delighted."
Guillermo Rodriguez Garcia
"I have just downloaded and compiled wxWidgets 2 beta 5 under
Windows 98 with mingw32. I have been using V for some months
now, but it just doesn't fit. wxWidgets seems to be much more
complete and appropriate for developing large multi-platform
projects. Also, the provided set of classes for portable
networking are a BIG bonus. Congratulations!"

"I was very pleased with the platform independence of wxWidgets. I
developed a wxWidgets-based training application on the Sun using
OpenLook. The problem was that four hours before the first try-out of

was to create a port to Motif. I did this with the help of a colleague
in two hours. Was I glad that we used wxWidgets for the application!"

better than OWL, for sure."
Peter Sever, IBM/Technical University of Vienna.
"First of all: congratulations, wxWidgets is a great product and the
effort you invested in wxWidgets is visible in each part. The
documentation, the WWW pages, wxBuilder, the installation - everything
is more professional than many expensive software products, implemented
by large companies. After two days internet surfing, I decided to
propose wxWidgets to my institute, where I write my dissertation,
because first wxWidgets gives a professional impression and second it's
free. My proposal was accepted and then I started testing wxWidgets. And
my good impression was confirmed... And then I was really impressed. I
used the wxBuilder to draw a window, generated C++ code, compiled it,
started the program and it worked. Without any error - neither in the
wxBuilder nor during compile, link or execution - GREAT :-)"
Michael Bedward, ecological consultant
"...I'd like to say thanks again for wxWidgets. Over the last few
months I've successfully used wxWidgets to port a DOS application that
simulates the fate of species populations in fire-prone landscapes to
Windows 3.1 and Solaris 2.5. I am an ecologist rather than a ‘real’
programmer and a total neophyte with Windows and Unix... so I think that
this is a testament to the good design and documentation of wxWidgets
and the very useful demo programs."
"I enjoy the use of wxWidgets. I believe it's the best freeware
cross-platform tool out there. I have downloaded just about every
freee/shareware crossplatform GUI tool and none seem to compare. Either
they only compile under one compiler on the PC's without supporting others
or the widget set is not there."
Ulf Griesmann, National Institute of Standards and Technology,
Atomic Physics Division
"wxWidgets is a terrific piece of work and,
in my opinion, the only really useable open multi-platform GUI class
library. None of the other free GUI class libraries (V, YACL etc.) seems
to be as close to production quality. If at all possible, please keep up
the good work!"
George Tasker, Remstar, USA
"Great support through the
mailing lists (answers/bug fixes typically come back in a matter of hours). The
latest versions of wxWidgets (2.2.x and above) have made great advances since
our earlier efforts using wx1.68, with many features we would have loved to have
used in our original version now implemented by various contributors. wxWidgets
is a great example of the benefits of Open Source."
Nicky Clarke, Jack Roe (CS) Ltd, UK
"No problems, simple to use, very impressed."
Test Insight Ltd., Israel
"wxWidgets was our choice of multiplatform library for being easy to learn and use,
powerful, feature-rich and free. Also, having the full source of the
library allows us to introduce bug fixes and custom enchancements. Mail
archives and mail list is an excellent choice for support with very
prompt replies from wxWidgets developers and advanced users."

"I'm finding version 2 of wxWin particularly easy to use.
I first used wxWidgets 5 or 6 years ago (when 1.65 was current!). It saved
me bundles of time trying to do cross platform development. I am now updating
to 2.2 and 2.2 is great: many additional features as well as making many
things easier. I am very pleased. wxWidgets is not perfect (what is?), but
when I ran into a problem, I got suggestions and guidance from the mailing
Søren Erland Vestø,
"When I first started work on DNSPilot, I were not sure what framework to use.
I therefore started work on the internals of the system; the core and DB-abstraction-layer.
When it became time to start working on some access to DB and some UI-elements I first started using MFC.
It's amazing how fast you grow tired of that.. :-) After a few weeks I heard about wxWidgets and it
was decided to give it a try. We never looked back.
Sure, sometimes it can be seen that wxWidgets is a work-in-progress. But most of the time it's easy
and logical to work with. And the fact that it's open source gives for the opportunity to be a part
of the development process by giving feedback and ideas to the developers.
My experience of the community surrounding wxWidgets is very positive. Response-time on the mailinglists
is fast and most times the responses are accurate.
All in all wxWidgets is one of the best frameworks out there."
"We migrated from FORTRAN to C++, OOP, and wxWidgets in one step -- not recommended!

many many thanks to all of them!"
"Very nice, very useful. Transition from Microsoft Foundation Classes was easy."
Fractal Graphics, Australia
"We are writing large apps using wxWidgets as a front end. wxWidgets has
not 'got in the way' of our software design process, nor caused many
implementation problems. I'm a big advocate of wxWidgets.
...I'm not sure you'd find such efficient support service anywhere else,
nor a team that is so open to suggestion.
...We identified wxWidgets as one of our largest risks in our project, back
when wxWidgets 2 was in early beta stages - it is now one of our lowest
risks (personal opinion there...). We've grown to trust the lib, and
respect the development team behind it."
