wxPython – Get Default Attributes of StaticText

In this article we are going to learn how can we get different attributes of StaticText like background, foreground clors and fonts. We use GetClassDefaultAttributes() function to get an object of wx.VisualAttributes. It may or may not take variant as an argument.

Syntax:
wx.StaticText.GetClassDefaultAttributes()
or
wx.StaticText.GetClassDefaultAttributes(variant=WINDOW_VARIANT_NORMAL)

Paremeters:

Parameter Input Type Description
variant WindowVariant variant for static text.

Return Type:
wx.VisualAttributes

Code Example:

filter_none

import wx
  
  
class Example(wx.Frame):
  
    def __init__(self, *args, **kwargs):
        super(Example, self).__init__(*args, **kwargs)
        self.InitUI()
  
    def InitUI(self):
        self.locale = wx.Locale(wx.LANGUAGE_ENGLISH)
        self.pnl = wx.Panel(self)
  
        bmp = wx.Bitmap('right.png')
        # CREATE STATICTEXT AT POINT (20, 20)
        self.st = wx.StaticText(self.pnl, id = 1, label ="This is the Label.", pos =(20, 20),
                                size = wx.DefaultSize, style = wx.ST_ELLIPSIZE_MIDDLE, name ="statictext")
  
        self.st.SetBackgroundColour((255, 252, 92, 255))
        self.st.SetForegroundColour((14, 96, 150, 255))
          
        # GET DEFAULT ATTRIBUTES OBJECT
        v = self.st.GetClassDefaultAttributes();
        print(v.colBg)
        print(v.colFg)
        print(v.font)
  
        self.SetSize((350, 250))
        self.SetTitle('wx.Button')
        self.Centre()
  
def main():
    app = wx.App()
    ex = Example(None)
    ex.Show()
    app.MainLoop()
  
  
if __name__ == '__main__':
    main()
