Icon on wx.MDIParentFra me

I would like to put an Icon on the frame but cannot figure out how to
do it any help.

Running on XP machine.

It appears that wxPython suffers from the same problem as most software
packages. I find that the reference manual is only of any real help
once you have a pretty good understanding of how the software works in
the first place.

Hello Len
I would like to put an Icon on the frame but cannot figure out how to
do it any help.
What about:

wx.MDIParentFra me.SetIcon(self , icon)


I usually take a look also to the wxPython API docs at:


Or I use some google-fu to find answers, both for Python and wxPython.

It appears that wxPython suffers from the same problem as most software
packages. I find that the reference manual is only of any real help
once you have a pretty good understanding of how the software works in
the first place.

The "docs subject" appears to be hot this week ;-) . You are perfectly
right, in my opinion. However, I am quite sure that the new wxPython book
(scheduled for december or something around december) will be a useful and
nice reference for newbies and experts.

I will keep an eye out for the book. I just downloaded wxGlade and
created a small file and looked at how it does it.

Again thanks for the response

That (copying someone else) is almost always the best approach anyway,
even when one has decent documentation.

Note that with wxPython you should have or can install the "Demo"
package, which includes a demo program that shows how to do pretty much
everything. If there isn't code somewhere in there that shows how to
set an icon on a frame, I'd be surprised. (On the other hand, finding
exactly which of the many demo screens it is in could be a challenge.)

The demo used to be included in the standard distribution but is now
separate, so maybe you missed it.
