#18589 confirmed defect

wxRichTextCtrl does not like to be wxID_HIGHEST + 1

Reported by: rwruck Owned by:

Patch: no


As stated in, identifiers above wxID_HIGHEST are free to be used by user code.
Unfortunately, wxRichTextCtrl seems to use wxID_HIGHEST to wxID_HIGHEST + 3 for its own menu items, so if you assign wxID_HIGHEST + 1 to a wxRichTextCtrl, it will always be disabled because the control itself disables its menu items with those IDs.
See richtextctrl.h.

Is there a reason you can't use wxID_ANY?

It's indeed a bad idea to hardcode wxID_RICHTEXT_PROPERTIESn values like this, I don't know why was it done, but it would be nice to fix this, ideally by not using fixed constants. I don't know this code at all, however, so I don't really have any plans to do it, sorry.
