January 2011 | Open Source

Packt is pleased to announce its new book titled “wxPython 2.8 Application Development Cookbook” for Python programmers wanting to create interface translatable GUI applications that will run on Windows, Macintosh OSX, Linux, and other UNIX like environments. Written by Cody Precord this book allows Python programmers to quickly develop programs with a complete and highly functional graphical user interface.

WxPython is a GUI toolkit for the Python programming language. It allows Python programmers to create programs with a robust, highly functional graphical user interface, simply and easily. It is implemented as a Python extension module (native code) that wraps the popular wxwidget cross platform GUI library, which is written in C++.

wxPython 2.8 Application Development Cookbook starts off by covering a variety of topics from the most basic requirements of a wxPython application to some of the more in depth details of the inner workings of the framework laying the foundation for any wxPython application. It then explains event handling, basic and advanced user interface controls, designing and layout, creating dialogs, components and extending functionality.

Readers will be able to set up the wx main frame by adding their own frame class to the application. It will help them in retrieving information from users who use common dialogs along with creating a custom XRC resource handler class to use custom widget classes in XRC. They will also learn to embed images into python files using wxPython's embedded image tool and classes and make multi-threaded wxPython applications.

Packed with lots of exciting examples, step-by-step instructions and amazing screenshots, this book is written for python programmers wanting to develop GUI applications. .
