Python: wxPython in Action

If you add the powerful wxWidgets toolkit to Python, you get wxPython: an open source GUI framework with a well-deserved reputation for simplicity and ease of use. wxPython lets you build cross-platform applications that have robust, highly functional graphical user interfaces.

The first book on the subject, wxPython in Action offers a friendly tutorial to get you started, a detailed guide to best practices, and an extensive reference for wxPython’s large widget library. It covers an impressive amount of information delivered at a measured pace, encouraging experimentation and learning by doing.

The book’s direct, no-nonsense style makes for an easy introduction to the concepts. It offers a complete discussion of when, why, and how to use the many widgets in the toolkit. And it includes dozens of handy reference tables so you can easily look up object properties, methods, and events. Co-authored by wxPython creator Robin Dunn, wxPython in Action is the authoritative book on the subject
