#18348 closed defect (invalid)

wxDataViewRenderer derived classes data members are declared private!

Most of wxDataViewRenderer derived classes are declared private where they should be protected.

I needed to customize wxDataViewDateRenderer to make display the full date and time, where I found that m_date is private.

The same thing applies to wxDataViewTextRenderer for m_markupText member.

And all the rest of the derived classes.

Thank you for your understanding.

These fields are private for a good reason and I don't think at all we should make them protected. For wxDataViewDateRenderer() the right thing to do to allow customizing the display would be to add a virtual wxString DoFormat(wxDate d) method that would call d.FormatDate() by default but could be overridden to do something else. Patches/PRs doing this would be gratefully accepted as usual.

For wxDataViewTextRenderer I don't really know what do you want to do, so I can't suggest anything right now.

For wxDataViewTextRenderer I mean when you need to render a floating point for example and you need to show the 2 decimals for example: 2500.00, then this class should be customized.

I had to re-implement these classes as in the attached to achieve what is missing.
