View Full Version : [Python] Class not doing what I want it to

June 10th, 2009, 01:17 AM
I created a class derived from a wx.Panel that should change colors when MyWindow.ChangeColor(color) is called. It works when the program is first launched, the color of the widget is set to one of five. But when I create a button to try and change the color and press it, nothing happens.


import wx, random

class MyWindow(wx.Panel):
"""A widget that changes colors"""
def __init__(self, parent, id):
wx.Panel.__init__(self, parent, id)

def ChangeColor(self, color):

class MainWindow(wx.Frame):
def __init__(self, parent, id, title):
wx.Frame.__init__(self, parent, id, title)

self.test = MyWindow(self, -1)
self.BGColor(None) # Sets the background color upon execution

color_button = wx.Button(self.test, -1, "Change Colors") # Button to change the background color
color_button.Bind(wx.EVT_BUTTON, self.BGColor)

def BGColor(self, event):
colors = ("Blue", "Black", "Red", "Yellow", "Green")
random_color = random.randrange(5)
print "color changed to %s" % colors[random_color]

class TestApp(wx.App):
def OnInit(self):
frame = MainWindow(None, -1, "Testing")
return True

app = TestApp(0)

Where have I gone wrong?

Works fine here.
There might be a very small chance that the random function has always selected the same color at the time you tried.
