  • Last Updated : 18 Jun, 2020
Geek Week

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 wil 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)


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__':
