    As youi know - Boa is based on wxPython. So the tutorial posted in the forum will help explain some of the principles:

    But don't give up on working your way through the Python tutorials either

    Have fun.

    i am learning wxpython at the mo too! Boa is great for making interfaces quick, but i recon that the best way is to learn how to code the interfaces first (which is what i am currently doing), because there are always gonna be nitty gritty bits that boa can't do. And i find it really frustrating when i look at ready-made code and don't have a clue what it's about!

    I guess it's a more advanced concept of using WYSIWYG editores with html.

    Okay so you say I should learn wxPython first and learn how to code them instead of putting them together.

    That's the idea - create simple wxPython apps using any text editor (IDLE works too). Once you think you know how wxPython works then using Boa makes a lot more sense!
