wxSystemOptions stores option/value pairs that wxWidgets itself or applications can use to alter behaviour at run-time. It can be used to optimize behaviour that doesn't deserve a distinct API, but is still important to be able to configure.
These options are currently recognised by wxWidgets.
|no-maskblt||1 to never use WIN32's MaskBlt function, 0 to allow it to be used where possible. Default: 0. In some circumstances the MaskBlt function can be slower than using the fallback code, especially if using DC cacheing. By default, MaskBlt will be used where it is implemented by the operating system and driver.|
|msw.remap||If 1 (the default), wxToolBar bitmap colours will be remapped to the current theme's values. Set this to 0 to disable this functionality, for example if you're using more than 16 colours in your tool bitmaps.|
|msw.window.no-clip-children||If 1, windows will not automatically get the WS_CLIPCHILDREN style. This restores the way windows are refreshed back to the method used in versions of wxWidgets earlier than 2.5.4, and for some complex window hierarchies it can reduce apparent refresh delays. You may still specify wxCLIP_CHILDREN for individual windows.|
|msw.notebook.themed-background||If set to 0, globally disables themed backgrounds on notebook pages. Note that this won't disable the theme on the actual notebook background (noticeable only if there are no pages).|
|msw.staticbitmap.htclient||If set to 1, allows the static bitmap to respond to mouse events. The default is 0, since a value of 1 can interfere with refresh in static boxes. Note that once set, this option cannot be unset later in the application.|
|msw.staticbox.optimized-paint||If set to 0, switches off optimized wxStaticBox painting. Setting this to 0 causes more flicker, but allows applications to paint graphics on the parent of a static box (the optimized refresh causes any such drawing to disappear).|
|mac.window-plain-transition||If 1, uses a plainer transition when showing a window. You can also use the symbol wxMAC_WINDOW_PLAIN_TRANSITION.|
|window-default-variant||The default variant used by windows (cast to integer from the wxWindowVariant enum). Also known as wxWINDOW_DEFAULT_VARIANT.|
|mgl.aa-threshold||Set this integer option to point size below which fonts are not antialiased. Default: 10.|
|mgl.screen-refresh||Screen refresh rate in Hz. A reasonable default is used if not specified.|
|motif.largebuttons||If 1, uses a bigger default size for wxButtons.|
The compile-time option to include or exclude this functionality is wxUSE_SYSTEM_OPTIONS.
Default constructor. You don't need to create an instance of wxSystemOptions since all of its functions are static.
wxString GetOption(const wxString& name) const
Gets an option. The function is case-insensitive to name.
Returns empty string if the option hasn't been set.
wxSystemOptions::SetOption, wxSystemOptions::GetOptionInt, wxSystemOptions::HasOption
int GetOptionInt(const wxString& name) const
Gets an option as an integer. The function is case-insensitive to name.
If the option hasn't been set, this function returns 0.
wxSystemOptions::SetOption, wxSystemOptions::GetOption, wxSystemOptions::HasOption
bool HasOption(const wxString& name) const
Returns true if the given option is present. The function is case-insensitive to name.
wxSystemOptions::SetOption, wxSystemOptions::GetOption, wxSystemOptions::GetOptionInt
bool IsFalse(const wxString& name) const
Returns true if the option with the given name had been set to 0 value. This is mostly useful for boolean options for which you can't use GetOptionInt(name) == 0 as this would also be true if the option hadn't been set at all.
void SetOption(const wxString& name, const wxString& value)
void SetOption(const wxString& name, int value)
Sets an option. The function is case-insensitive to name.
wxSystemOptions::GetOption, wxSystemOptions::GetOptionInt, wxSystemOptions::HasOption
