In this article we are going to learn how can we change the font of static text present on the window. To do this first of all, we will create a wx.Font class of wxPython. After this we will use SetFont() function of wx.StaticText class. SetFont() function takes a sing wx.Font type parameter.

Syntax: wx.StaticText.SetFont(self, font) Parameters:

ParameterInput TypeDescription
fontwx.FontFont for the static text.

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)
        # create wx.Font object
        font = wx.Font(20, family = wx.FONTFAMILY_MODERN, style = 0, weight = 90,
                      underline = False, faceName ="", encoding = wx.FONTENCODING_DEFAULT)
 = wx.StaticText(self.pnl, id = 1, label ="This is the Label.", pos =(20, 20),
                                size = wx.DefaultSize, style = wx.ST_ELLIPSIZE_MIDDLE, name ="statictext")
        # set font for the statictext
        self.SetSize((350, 250))
def main():
    app = wx.App()
    ex = Example(None)
if __name__ == '__main__':
