#11009 closed defect (fixed)

VC9 deprecated functions when defs.h not included

Reported by: ScratchMonkey Owned by:
Priority: low Milestone:
Component: build Version: stable-latest
Keywords: deprecated Cc: vaclavslavik
Blocked By: Blocking:
Patch: yes


When I "build solution" using the vc9 (Visual Studio 2008) solution, most of the libraries include defs.h and hence define _CRT_SECURE_NO_DEPRECATE. But a few such as wxregex and wxscintilla have sources that skip that header. The result is a spew of warnings about deprecated ANSI functions.

How about injecting this #define directly from the project via the bakefile?

I'm not sure which bakefile makes the most sense to do this in, but this experimental patch against trunk gets the symbol into all the desired project files.

  • Milestone set to 2.9.1
  • Status changed from new to confirmed

Thanks, I think this should indeed be applied, does anyone see anything against it?

  • Cc vaclavslavik added

One small problem with this patch is that it also adds this flag to rc and midl flags and it really doesn't make much sense there. Not a huge problem, arguably, but still weird. Vaclav, is there some way to only add the flag for cl itself?

  • Milestone 2.9.1 deleted
  • Priority changed from normal to low

This is not critical for 2.9.1. I still wonder about what would be the best way to do this but I guess we could add /D_CRT_SECURE_NO_DEPRECATE directly to cflags instead of using <define>.

  • Resolution set to fixed
  • Status changed from confirmed to closed

(In [70182]) Disable VC8+ deprecation warnings for standard functions at bakefile level.

We already define the symbols needed to disable the warnings in wx/defs.h but
this isn't enough for third party code not including it, so define them in the
project settings directly.

Closes #11009.

(In [70532]) Avoid CRT deprecation warnings for MSVC build using makefiles too.

_SCL_SECURE_NO_WARNINGS when using makefiles to build the library too for
consistency with the project files.

These defines are only needed for VC8 and later but should do no harm for the
previous versions.

See #11009.
