Can anyone recommend a good (beginner) book for wxruby?
As Chauk-Mean says there is a good book about wxWidgets which can be had
free. You can read the text of this to understand the classes, then come
back to wxRuby docs and samples to try them out.
There’s also a wxPython book. I haven’t seen it, but with Python being
more similar than C++ to Ruby, the code can be easier to understand. For
example, I was reading the “wxPython style guide” yesterday and nearly
everything in it I would recommend for Ruby too.
The wxruby community is great, but I feel like a symbiotic parasite
coming back and back with questions.
Don’t feel like that. So long as you’ve made a reasonable effort to find
the answer using the material available to you (docs, samples, web
search), no-one minds. Other people benefit through the mailing list and
then the archives being available. wxRuby is a big library (~300
classes) and I often still find out new things fielding questions.
A useful search tactic is to try converting the search terms back to C++
/ Python naming. For example, I was trying to figure something out about
the set_focus method of Wx::Window. Searching for “wxWindow SetFocus”
turned up the answer I was looking for on the wxPython and wxWidgets
