    Post wxPython Tutorials/Books


    hey Im a newbie with wxPython. I just started learning because a lot of people around here seem to prefer it over Tkinter so I decided I'd find out why. I read a brief tutorial "Getting Started" at wxPython Wiki and I liked it a lot. Unfortunatly it isn't fully complete. I was hopeing someone could point me to a very indepth one. So far I do like it more than Tkinter although it needs more references. thx to you all

    the wiki is the best introduction I know of. once you know the fundamentals from that introduction, the example code that comes with wxPython is a great place to learn new things. also, the wxPython reference is a handy thing (although it uses C++ syntax - not sure if you're comfortable with that), so check it out here: http://www.lpthe.jussieu.fr/~zeitlin...docs/wxwin.htm

    Documentation is wxPython's weakest point, IMHO. The main reference docs are for C++, but it is not difficult to translate to Python syntax. There are also a lot of additional Python-only widgets that are not well documented at all except in the source code.

    I know that there is a wxPython book in the works, but I don't know when it is likely to be published.

    The first place I go when using a feature I am unfamiliar with is to the wxPython demo - there is example code for pretty much every class, usually with some description of what it does. Then I go to the wxWindows reference and to the wiki (http://wiki.wxpython.org/). You can also search the mailing lists at http://lists.wxwidgets.org/ for answers to specific questions, or post your own question.
