Padre::Wx::App - Padre main Wx application abstraction


For architectural clarity, Padre maintains two separate collections of resources, a Wx object tree representing the literal GUI elements, and a second tree of objects representing the abstract concepts, such as configuration, projects, and so on.

Theoretically, this should allow Padre to run automated processes of various types without having to bootstrap a process up into an entire 30+ megabyte Wx-capable instance.

Padre::Wx::App is a Wx::App subclass that represents the Wx application as a whole, and acts as the root of the object tree for the GUI elements.

From the main Padre object, it can be accessed via the wx method.



The ide accessor provides a link back to the parent Padre ide object.


The main accessor returns the Padre::Wx::Main object for the application.


The config accessor returns the Padre::Config for the application.
