Hi all!
I am new to Digital Mars C++. I have mostly used Borland Builder in the past.
Also been playing with Dev-c++ and gcc. From the few test programs I have
compiled I am very pleased with the speed of DM. Now for my question. Both when
compiling wxwidgets and win32 programs, they do not look very good. There are
some ugly pixels at the bottom of the menu bar. Or between the menubar and the
toolbar. I really can't let my programs look like that on WinXp. I have never
seen it before when using for example mingw studio. Does this make any sense?
Any suggestions? Here is a bad quality scrrendump, but I think you get the
picture. Any comments would be most welcome.

Regards,

Storck

This is a common problem, and fortunately there's an easy solution: www.digitalmars.com/faq.html#subsystem

Thank you for a very fast reply. I am happy again. One thought though, maybe it
would be a good idea to have this working right out of the box.

AFAIK this works right out of the box in the new build system of wxWidgets family where bakefile is used. It was introduced into bakefiles at http://cvs.sourceforge.net/viewcvs.py/bakefile/bakefile/rules/makefile_defs_dmars_common.bkl?r1=1.1&r2=1.2 ABX
