OpenLaszlo Newbie

Took a look at the OpenLaszlo video, and was very impressed that you can add drag and drop to web pages, using either Flash or DHTML. I am interested in the second because I want to be able to generate pages that can be run on Firefox from any platform. I could give a...
well, I'll try to keep this post civil, lets just say Internet Explorer is not my favorite browser.

The other thing I like, is it looks like you can get very creative, and...

The GNU/Linux name controversy

Avoiding wxPython PrintPreview segmentation fault or double free error

Posted 11-28-2008 at 09:23 PM by dr_agon

applies to: Python, wxPython (v.2.8), wxWidgets, wx.PrintPreview, wx.Printout

Example (don't do this!):
class MyPrintout(wx.Printout):
  #rest of code
