Comparing different libraries gives us the choice of which toolkits to use for your own Python GUI development, and you can combine several of those toolkits in your own Python code. You can recreate the GUI of the previous sections using wxPython.
- [Instructor] In the previous video,…we created our very own GUI.…This is the next video called adding controls.…In this video, we will recreate the GUI.…We originally created, earlier in this course, with Tkinter.…But this time, we will be using the wxPython library.…We will see how easy and quick it is to use,…the wxPython GUI toolkit, to create our own Python GUIs.…Let's jump right in.…Note, we will not recreate the entire functionality,…we created in previous sections.…
For example, we will not internationalize our wxPython GUI…nor connect it to a MySQL database.…We will recreate the visual aspects of the GUI…and add some more functionality.…First, we create our Python OOP class…as we did before, using Tkinter.…Let me just paste the code in a file called GUI_wxPython.py…This time, we inherit from and extend the wx.frame class.…
For clarity reasons, we no longer call our class OOP.…But instead, rename it as mainframe.…In wxPython, the main GUI window is called a frame.…We also create a callback method that closes the GUI…
