Sorry about that, it was one of those 'late night' moments. I had forgotten I was already checking a checkbox to see if the app should process those events. I simply set the value of the checkbox to false during config load. Thank you nonetheless for the help, I couldn't find much documentation on t...

stop events

Hello all, Is there a way to stop all event processing during execution of a function? Here's what's going on: a) creating panels based on a config file b) loading values from the config file into respective controls Now, almost all my textctrl fields have wx.EVT_TXT set, so when the config loader g...

Unless there is a requirement not to (i.e. support for some legacy applications), save in utf-8, and . As for the input, one project I made had the problem of not being able to tell what encoding was used due to many different possibilities. My solution was to allow the user to select the correct en...

However, I do not want to start up an epic discussion about this here.
Ya not the right place. However, I will add that if I remember correctly, the main reason that firefox and OOo distribute in such a way is because they use their own GUI libraries.

Not to be a drag, but this is not the preferred Linux way, this is the windows way of doing things. The main reason for this is simple: Linux can be run on almost any architecture (vs only x86 for win) so you should really distribute the source and let people compile it for their platform. (closed s...

I got it almost there using the code you showed me, until I got pulled to another project. Such is the life of commercial devs... *sigh*

How big are your images on buttons? 800x800 pixels? 30720x4048 px JPG, and I'm loading 5 at a time through a SMB connection :twisted: I am generating 512x70 px (roughly) thumbnails on the fly with PIL. I could very easily generate another set of thumbnails with PIL for the deactivated state, but I ...

I'm using the border color method right now, but in order for it to work I had to set flag=wx.BORDER_NONE and make the button bigger than the image. It works, but when you click on the button it doesn't 'click' since the 3d effect is lost. The disabled look is better in my opinion, it makes it very ...

yes I tried that button but...
a) it takes twice as long to draw
b) the toggled state is more ambiguous than the disabled state

I tried creating my own button class but I don't know which command to set the grayed out look. Any leads?

thanks

disable without actually disabling

I'm writing an application where the user has to select images, I'm loading them into BitmapButtons to make it real easy for them. I would like to get some visual feedback on which images have been selected. The nicest and easiest way I saw was to use Enable(False) to quickly gray out the images. Th...

Skins are cool, I like that VLC has them. They are often abused to create absolutely hideous and unworkable interfaces for the sake of 'art', but hey, that's the skin designer's fault, not the tool itself.
As long as there is a good and workable default, then more choice can only be a good thing.

Code: Select all

def realPath(self, file):
        return os.path.join(sys.path[0].decode(sys.getfilesystemencoding()),file)

if wx.Process.Open(self.realPath(sys.argv[0])):
        self.Close()
Did this and it worked great, thank you!
