  • Last Updated : 18 Jun, 2020
Geek Week

In this article we are going to learn about how can we change background colour of a button present in a frame. We use SetBackgroundColour() function to set background colour of the button to some different colour.
It takes a wx.Colour class object as an argument.

Syntax: wx.Button.SetBackgroundColour(self, colour)


ParameterInput TypeDescription
colourwx.ColourColour for the background.

Code Example:

import wx
class Example(wx.Frame):
    def __init__(self, *args, **kwargs):
        super(Example, self).__init__(*args, **kwargs)
    def InitUI(self):
        self.locale = wx.Locale(wx.LANGUAGE_ENGLISH)
        self.pnl = wx.Panel(self)
        font = wx.Font(10, family = wx.FONTFAMILY_MODERN, style = 0, weight = 90,
                        underline = False, faceName ="", encoding = wx.FONTENCODING_DEFAULT)
        self.btn = wx.Button(self.pnl, id = 1, label ="Click", pos =(20, 20),
                                size = wx.DefaultSize, name ="statictext")
        self.btn.SetBackgroundColour((255, 230, 200, 255))
        self.SetSize((350, 250))
def main():
    app = wx.App()
    ex = Example(None)
if __name__ == '__main__':
