wxStreamToTextRedirector Class Reference

#include <wx/textctrl.h>

Detailed Description

This class can be used to (temporarily) redirect all output sent to a C++ ostream object to a wxTextCtrl instead.

Note
This class is not available if wxUSE_STD_IOSTREAM is set to 0 (which is done by --disable-std_iostreams option when using configure).

Example of usage:

using namespace std;
wxTextCtrl* text = new wxTextCtrl(...);
{
wxStreamToTextRedirector redirect(text);
// this goes to the text control
cout << "Hello, text!" << endl;
}
// this goes somewhere else, presumably to stdout
cout << "Hello, console!" << endl;
