wxPython – Change Font colour of Radio Button

  • Last Updated : 03 Aug, 2021

In this article we are going to learn that how can we change the foreground or font color of the radio button. In order to change the foreground colour of Radio Button we will use SetForegroundColour() function. SetForegroundColour() function sets the foreground colour of the window.

The meaning of foreground colour varies according to the window class; it may be the text colour or other colour, or it may not be used at all. Additionally, not all native controls support changing their foreground colour so this method may change their colour only partially or even not at all.

        # create parent panel in the frame
        self.pnl = wx.Panel(self)
        # create radio button at position (30, 10)
        self.rb1 = wx.RadioButton(self.pnl, label ='Btn1'
                            pos =(30, 10), size =(100, 20))
        # change background colour
        self.rb1.SetBackgroundColour((233, 227, 100, 255))
