wxDatePickerCtrl not working correctly on GTK3

Hi guys,

When I compile my program with wxWidgets 3.0.0 using GTK3, I can not use the wxDatePickerCtrl in a modal dialog acceptably. When I try to select a date, the dropdown box closes, but the date is not selected. I can only select a date by pressing the up/down/left/right arrow keys and space alternately.

There is no problem with wxWidgets 3.0.0 compiled using GTK2 on the same system.

Any ideas or help?

Can this be seen in the calendar sample too?

No. I have just checked that and seen, that everything seems to work fine in the sample.
But there's still the difference, that my wxDatePickerCtrl is placed in a panel of a wxNotebook.
Perhaps a screenshot helps in this case (see attached).

  • Keywords repro-needed added

A minimal patch against the calendar sample reproducing the problem would be really helpful.

  • Keywords repro-needed removed
  • Status changed from new to confirmed

Can be seen with the widgets sample. Looks like generic combobox is broken.

So no patch needed, right?
Will use my gtk2 build in the meantime...

Wonderful, thanks. Will this be in wxWidgets 3.0.1?
