wxPython – Change Foreground Colour of Button

  • Last Updated : 24 Jun, 2020

In this article we will learn how can we change the foreground colour of the button or the font colour of the button. To do this we will use SetForegroundColour() function associated with wx.Button class of wxPython.

SetForegroundColour() function simply takes wx.Colour argument for the foreground.

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


ParameterInput TypeDescription
colourwx.Colourcolour for the foreground.

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)
        # create parent panel for button        
        self.pnl = wx.Panel(self)
        # create button at point (20, 20)
        self.btn = wx.Button(self.pnl, id = 1, label ="Button", pos =(20, 20),
                                            size =(300, 40),  name ="button")
        # change foreground colour of button to blue
        self.btn.SetForegroundColour((0, 0, 255, 255))
        self.SetSize((350, 250))
def main():
    app = wx.App()
    ex = Example(None)
if __name__ == '__main__':
