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)


itemwx.TreeItemIdItem that we want to associate editlabel with.

Code Example:


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,
        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
        # start editlabel
        sizer = wx.BoxSizer(wx.VERTICAL)
        sizer.Add(self.tree, 0, wx.EXPAND)
class MainFrame(wx.Frame):
    def __init__(self):
        wx.Frame.__init__(self, parent = None, title ='TreeCtrl Demo')
        panel = TreePanel(self)
if __name__ == '__main__':
    app = wx.App(redirect = False)
    frame = MainFrame()
