Hi, I've been experimenting with wxruby for a bit, but am still a relative newcomer. I find myself wanting to do something that I think should be pretty staight- forward, but I can't quite figure out how do it from the documentation. I wish to create a simple help screen, i.e., a simple window that pops up in response to a menu selection or a hot-key and displays static text. As far as I can see, there doesn't seem to be a Dialog-derived class suitable for this. I did try using the MessageDialog class for this, but the problem is that the help text is rather long, so I want the user to be able to resize the help window as he (or she) wishes and have the displayed text wrap as appropriate to the size of the window. MessageDialog doesn't seem to allow this, so I get an oversized help window with each paragraph displayed as a single line. How can I achieve what I want?
