Re: [PATCH] Documentation: UI policy update about dialogs



Some wxFormBuilder projects files in the source code are incompatible with the
wxFormBuilder version currently recommended in the documentation [1]. One
example of such a file is [2]. This file has been created with wxFormBuilder
v3.8.1, as evidenced by the version date in the .cpp file generated by it [3].
The documentation needs to be updated in order to remove misleading information
about wxFormBuilder version.
