wxPython – Get visual attributes of static box

In this article we are going to learn how can we get wx.VisualAttributes associated with Static Box. In order to do that we will use static GetClassDefaultAttributes() function. GetClassDefaultAttributes() function is used to return wx.VisualAttributes object for properties like backgroud colour, foreground colour and font.

Syntax: wx.StaticBox.GetClassDefaultAttributes(variant=WINDOW_VARIANT_NORMAL)


Parameter Input Type Description
variant WindowVariant variant associate with Static Box.

Return Type: wx.VisualAttributes

Code Example:





import wx
class FrameUI(wx.Frame):
    def __init__(self, parent, title):
        super(FrameUI, self).__init__(parent, title = title, size =(300, 200))
        # function for in-frame components
    def InitUI(self):
        # parent panel for radio box
        pnl = wx.Panel(self)
        # create static box
        self.sb = wx.StaticBox(pnl, 2, label ="Static Box"
                              pos =(20, 20), size =(100, 100))
        # wx.VisualAttributes object
        va = self.sb.GetClassDefaultAttributes(wx.WINDOW_VARIANT_NORMAL)
        # background and foreground colours
        print (va.colBg)
        print (va.colFg)
        # set frame in centre
        # set size of frame
        self.SetSize((400, 250))
        # show output frame
# wx App instance
ex = wx.App()
# Example instance
FrameUI(None, 'RadioButton and RadioBox')
