Re: wxWidgets Event Tables or Bind and lambdas



I would prefer that we not mix event handling styles unless there is a
good reason such as dynamically binding/unbinding for adding temporary
event handling.  For new code, I'm fine with either method with the
caveat that all of the Bind calls be defined in the same function rather
than spread all over the place.  That's one thing I do like about the
event tables.  All of the events are defined in one place.
