What customers say ...


I really liked the course since it offered a lot of information in a structured way. I especially found it helpful to see the different techniques "in action".

I enjoyed the course very much and learned a lot. My interest for quite few of topics was ignited during the course and I will into more details. I understood many principles. All in all: Very good training! Thank you very much all the best.

Module - Introduction to WxPython

Dates for Open Courses

Course available as open and in-house training. Currently no dates for open courses. Please ask us at info@python-academy.de

Motivation

WxPython (http://www.wxpython.org) is an open source GUI toolkit that si based on the C++ library wxWidgets (http://www.wxwidgets.org). WxPython is platform independent and provides native looking GUIs on Windows, Linux and Mac. It contains all modern GUI widgets and therefore provides a solid foundation for professional GUIs.

The course provides an overview of wxPython features. Important concepts are introduced with examples. The participants write their own simple GUIs in the course.

Course Content

First Example

We introduced a short example step-by step and implement a GUI for a small calculation program. We look at the underlying principles.

PyCrust

Developing with a toolkit of the size of wxPython can quickly become a complex task. It can be tricky to find out why things happen the way they do. PyCrust is an IDE that comes with wxPython and can really simplify working with wxPython. We look at this IDE and modify our example program in such a way that we can run it from PyCrust's interactive prompt.

Waiting - Simple Display

It is useful to show the user a progress status for longer running tasks. We implement a simple progress report feature.

The Status Bar

The status bar is an important widget for conveying program status to the user. We look at possibilities for status bars with different levels of complexity and try them out.

Progress Bar

We use a progress bar to show how much of the calculation in our sample program has been done. We use Python's yield to implement this without threads.

Dialogs

Dialogs are important for interactive applications. We look at the option wxPython offers for dialogs and implement different file choosing dialogs.

Grid Widget

The widget to display tabular data is the most comprehensive in wxPython. We modify our application and display our calculation results in a table. The exercises help to discover the possibility of this widget.

Module Duration

1 day, longer courses with extended program possible

Exercises

The participants can follow all steps directly on their computers. There are exercises at the end of each unit providing ample opportunity to apply the freshly learned knowledge.

Course Material

Every participant receives comprehensive printed materials that cover the whole course content as wells as a CD with all source codes and used software.

Intended Audience

Programmers with basic Python knowledge or after taking other courses (see Recommended Module Combinations).
