Code Example:

import wx
class Example(wx.Frame):
    global count
    count = 0;
    def __init__(self, *args, **kwargs):
        super(Example, self).__init__(*args, **kwargs)
    def InitUI(self):
        self.locale = wx.Locale(wx.LANGUAGE_ENGLISH)
        pnl = wx.Panel(self)
        self.toolbar = self.CreateToolBar()
        # Add tools to toolbar
        ptool = self.toolbar.AddTool(12, 'oneTool',
                                     wx.Bitmap('wrong.png'), shortHelp ="Simple Tool")
        qtool = self.toolbar.AddTool(12, 'oneTool', wx.Bitmap('wrong.png'),
                                     wx.Bitmap('wrong.png'), shortHelp ="Simple Tool")
        # change background colour of toolbar
        self.toolbar.SetBackgroundColour((255, 200, 50, 255))
        # print background colour of toolbar (r, g, b, a)
        self.SetSize((350, 250))
def main():
    app = wx.App()
    ex = Example(None)
if __name__ == '__main__':
