wxPython – AddRadioTool() function in wx.ToolBar

  • Last Updated : 17 May, 2020

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)
