In this particular article we are going to learn working of AddRadioTool() in wx.ToolBar class of wxPython. AddRadioTool() function creates a radio group such that exactly one button in the group is pressed at any moment, in other words whenever a button in the group is pressed the previously pressed button is automatically released. You should avoid having the radio groups of only one element as it would be impossible for the user to use such button.

Syntax : wx.ToolBar.AddRadioTool(self, toolId, label, bitmap1, bmpDisabled=NullBitmap, shortHelp=””, longHelp=””, clientData=None)

Parameters :

Parameter Input Type Description
toolid int An integer by which the tool may be identified in subsequent operations.
label string The string to be displayed with the tool.
bitmap1 wx.bitmap The primary tool bitmap.
bmpDisabled wx.bitmap The bitmap used when the tool is disabled.
shortHelp string This string is used for the tools tooltip.
longHelp string detailed string associated with tool.
clientData PyUserData An optional pointer to client data which can be retrieved later using GetToolClientData.

Return Type : wx.ToolBarToolBase

Code Example :

import wx
class Example(wx.Frame):
    global count
    count = 0;
    def __init__(self, *args, **kwargs):
        super(Example, self).__init__(*args, **kwargs)
    def InitUI(self):
        pnl = wx.Panel(self)
        self.toolbar = self.CreateToolBar()
        # add a radio tool in toolbar
        qtool = self.toolbar.AddRadioTool(12, 'right', wx.Bitmap('/Desktop/wxPython/right.png'),
                                                                        shortHelp ="Radio Tool")
        # another radio tool in radio group
        rtool = self.toolbar.AddRadioTool(13, 'right2', wx.Bitmap('/Desktop/wxPython/wrong.png'),
                                                                         shortHelp ="Radio Tool")
        self.SetSize((350, 250))
def main():
    app = wx.App()
    ex = Example(None)
if __name__ == '__main__':
