Notes on using the reference

In the descriptions of the wxWindows classes and their member functions, note that descriptions of inherited member functions are not duplicated in derived classes unless their behaviour is different. So in using a class such as wxScrolledWindow, be aware that wxWindow functions may be relevant.

Note also that arguments with default values may be omitted from a function call, for brevity. Size and position arguments may usually be given a value of -1 (the default), in which case wxWindows will choose a suitable value.

Most strings are returned as wxString objects. However, for remaining char * return values, the strings are allocated and deallocated by wxWindows. Therefore, return values should always be copied for long-term use, especially since the same buffer is often used by wxWindows.

The member functions are given in alphabetical order except for constructors and destructors which appear first.
