In this article we are going to learn about EditLabel() method associated with wx.TreeCtrl class of wxPython. Starts editing the label of the given item.

This function generates a EVT_TREE_BEGIN_LABEL_EDIT event which can be vetoed so that no text control will appear for in-place editing.

If the user changed the label (i.e. s/he does not press ESC or leave the text control without changes, a EVT_TREE_END_LABEL_EDIT event will be sent which can be vetoed as well.

Syntax: wx.TreeCtrl.EditLabel(self, item)

Python3




import wx
  
  
class MyTree(wx.TreeCtrl):
  
    def __init__(self, parent, id, pos, size, style):
        wx.TreeCtrl.__init__(self, parent, id, pos, size, style)
  
  
class TreePanel(wx.Panel):
  
    def __init__(self, parent):
        wx.Panel.__init__(self, parent)
        # create tree control in window
        self.tree = MyTree(self, wx.ID_ANY, wx.DefaultPosition, wx.DefaultSize,
                           wx.TR_HAS_BUTTONS)
        # CREATE TREE ROOT
        self.root = self.tree.AddRoot('root')
        self.tree.SetPyData(self.root, ('key', 'value'))
  
        # add item to root
        item = self.tree.AppendItem(self.root, "Item")
        item2 = self.tree.AppendItem(self.root, "Item")
  
        # expand root
        self.tree.Expand(self.root)
  
        # start editlabel
        self.tree.EditLabel(item2)
  
        sizer = wx.BoxSizer(wx.VERTICAL)
