In this particular article we are going to know, how we can add text to a window using wxPython. This can be done using wx.StaticText class. StaticText() constructor controls displays one or more lines of read-only text.

Syntax :

wx.StaticText(self, parent, id=ID_ANY, label=””, pos=DefaultPosition,
                    size=DefaultSize, style=0, name=StaticTextNameStr)

Parameters :

ParameterInput TypeDescription
parentwx.WindowParent window. Should not be None.
idwx.WindowIDControl identifier. A value of -1 denotes a default value.
labelstringText Label.
poswx.PointWindow position.
sizewx.WindowWindow size.
stylelongWindow style.
namestringWindow name.

Example #1:




# import wxPython
import wx
  
# create base class
class TextExample(wx.Frame):
  
    def __init__(self, *args, **kwargs):
        super(TextExample, self).__init__(*args, **kwargs)
  
        # lets put some text
        st = wx.StaticText(self, label ="Welcome to GeeksforGeeks")
  
def main():
    app = wx.PySimpleApp()
    frame = TextExample(None, title = "Read Text")
    frame.Show()
    app.MainLoop()
  
if __name__ == '__main__':
    main()

Output :

Example #2:




# import wxPython
import wx
  
  
class TextExample(wx.Frame):
  
    def __init__(self, *args, **kwargs):
        super(TextExample, self).__init__(*args, **kwargs)
        # put some text
        st = wx.StaticText(self, label ="Welcome to GeeksforGeeks")
  
        # create font object
        font = st.GetFont()
  
        # increase text size
        font.PointSize += 10
  
        # make text bold
        font = font.Bold()
  
        # associate font with text
        st.SetFont(font)
          
def main():
    app = wx.PySimpleApp()
  
    frame = TextExample(None, title = "Read Text")
    frame.Show()
    app.MainLoop()
  
if __name__ == '__main__':
    main()
