        super(Example, self).__init__(*args, **kwargs)
          
        # method calling
        self.InitUI()
      
    # method for user interface creation
    def InitUI(self):
        self.locale = wx.Locale(wx.LANGUAGE_ENGLISH)

# Driver code
if __name__ == '__main__':
    
  # main function call
  main()
