wxPython – SetBitmap() function in wxPython

  • Last Updated : 09 Jun, 2020
Geek Week

In this article we are going we are going to learn about SetBitmap() function associated with wx.MenuItem class of wxPython. SetBitmap() sets the bitmap for the menu item. SetBitmap must be called before the item is appended to the menu, i.e. appending the item without a bitmap and setting one later is not guaranteed to work. But the bitmap can be changed or reset later if it had been set up initially.




ParameterInput TypeDescription
bmpwx.BitmapBitmap to set for menu item.
checkedboolTrue to check and False for uncheck.

Code Example:

import wx
class Example(wx.Frame):
    def __init__(self, *args, **kwargs):
        super(Example, self).__init__(*args, **kwargs)
    def InitUI(self):
        self.locale = wx.Locale(wx.LANGUAGE_ENGLISH)
        self.menubar = wx.MenuBar()
        self.fileMenu = wx.Menu()
        self.item = wx.MenuItem(self.fileMenu, 1, '&Radio', helpString ="Check Help")
        # set bitmap for tool
        self.item.SetBitmap(bmp = wx.Bitmap('right.png'), checked = True)
        self.menubar.Append(self.fileMenu, '&File')
        self.SetSize((350, 250))
        self.SetTitle('Icons and shortcuts')
def main():
    app = wx.App()
    ex = Example(None)
if __name__ == '__main__':
