This feature is the possibility to use Pango-like markup in some wxWidgets controls, notably wxButton and wxStaticText. This means that it is now possible to write
wxButton *b = new wxButton(parent, wxID_ANY, "");and it will indeed behave as expected:
b->SetLabelMarkup("<span size='x-large' color='blue'>Big</span> <b>bold</b> button");
Currently this works for
wxButtonin all major ports and for the wxGTK and the generic versions of
wxStaticText(that can be used under all platforms if this feature is important). The plan is to extend this to more controls later, e.g.
wxStaticBoxand maybe even allow using markup for the items of controls with multiple items such as
wxComboBox. There is however no definite schedule for this so if anybody is interested in using markup with these controls, please consider helping with implementing it, it should be pretty simple to do by simply copying
