 wxWidgets Controls Screenshot Generator
 =======================================

 Thanks: Francesco Montorsi, Bryan Petty, Auria, Jorg and wxForum

 This utility is developed to automatically generate screenshots of the wxWidgets
 controls for use in wxWidgets documentation.

 The main part of the GUI (guiframe.h/guiframe.cpp) was generated with wxFormBuilder
 (http://wxformbuilder.org/), a powerful cross-platform open-source RAD tool. Now its
 trace is removed so we can maintain the code without using it.


===User Guide: How To Use==

The screenshots will be generated under sub-directory "screenshots" silently.
Please monitor this folder before taking screenshots using "File->Open screenshots folder".

1) The menu "Capture->Full screen" can take a screeshot for the fullscreen. It's designed
for testing purpose only.

2) The menu "Capture->Regions<Begin>" and "Capture->Regions<End>" was the semi-auto part,
and now it's deprecated and will be removed soon.

3) Finally the full-auto mode: "Capture->Capture All" or Ctrl+Alt+A, follow the instructions
 and all the screenshots will be generated correctly under the subdirectory "screenshots".

 ==Developer Guide: How To Add More Controls==

 (Coming soon)

 ==To-do List==

 1) Remove wxAuiNoteBook related lagacy codes, which is no longer useful;

 2) Refactor the GUI code, which was generated by wxFormBuilder, but it's messy for human to
 maintain;

 3) Remove the class CtrlMaskOut since semi-auto part of this utility is no longer needed.

 4) Clearify the interface of class AutoCaptureMechanism and document how to add a new control
 that needs to take screenshots, and how to adjust it to avoid bugs in wxRTTI system and
 wxWindow::GetScreenRect();

 5) Make this utility easier to configure;

 6) Add test functionality to confirm bugs in wxRTTI system and wxWindow::GetScreenRect().
