wxPython – SetItemLabel() function in wx.MenuItem

  • Last Updated : 10 Jun, 2020

In this article we are going to learn about SetItemLabel() function associated with wx.MenuItem class of wxPython. SetItemLabel() function is used to set the label associated with the menu item in menu.
Note that if the ID of this menu item corresponds to a stock ID, then it is not necessary to specify a label: wxWidgets will automatically use the stock item label associated with that ID. See the constructor for more info.


wx.MenuItem.SetItemLabel(self, label)


ParameterInput TypeDescription
labelstringnew label for menuitem.

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() = wx.StaticText(self, label ="", pos =(20, 20),
                                         style = wx.ALIGN_LEFT)
        self.item = wx.MenuItem(self.fileMenu, 1, '&Radio',
                                     kind = wx.ITEM_CHECK)
        # initial label of item is Radio
        # set new label of menu item
        self.item.SetItemLabel(label ="New Label")
        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__':
