In this article we will learn how can we change cursor image when cursor hovers over the static text. We can do it by creating a cursor object and using SetCursor() function associated with wx.StaticText class of wxPython. SetCursor() takes wx.Cursor object as a parameter.

Syntax: wx.StaticText.SetCursor(cursor)


ParameterInput TypeDescription
cursorwx.Cursorcursor to be set.

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)
        bmp = wx.Bitmap('right.png')
        # CREATE STATICTEXT AT POINT (20, 20) = wx.StaticText(self.pnl, id = 1, label ="This is the Label.", pos =(20, 20),
                                size = wx.DefaultSize, style = wx.ST_ELLIPSIZE_MIDDLE, name ="statictext")
        c = wx.Cursor(wx.Image('right.png'))
        # SET c AS CURSOR
        self.SetSize((350, 250))
def main():
    app = wx.App()
    ex = Example(None)
if __name__ == '__main__':
