How do I get more events from a wxListCtrl in a panel?

Hello.

I am working on an application using wxPython that includes a panel
with a wxListCtrl populated with data received from a LAN attached
database.

I want the wxListCtrl panel to be loaded with a small amount of data
initially. When the user moves the vertical scrollbar or press PageUp
or PageDown, I want to load the list view with new data from the
database. I only want to load the wxListCtrl with a subset of the
database data at a time so the list view is responsive and will allow
for handling large databases.

The problem I am having is how to get events from the scrollbars or
the PageUp/PageDown keys, etc. I can get events from selecting items,
etc.

Thanks,
Brian

Use a virtual list control (style wxLC_VIRTUAL) which doesn't contain
any data, but invokes callbacks to retrieve only those records which are
currently visible. See the example in the demo.

P.S. for wxPython specific questions, you will probably find a bigger
audience on the wxPython-users list (see
http://www.wxpython.org/maillist.php)

Hi, I am new to pogramming. I have written a small program which retrieves emails from server, unless all the messages are loaded only then it displays on screen properlely. Whole thing works fine if I use events to activate logMail() after start but I don't know how to activate an event at the start (witout pressing mouse or menu key) as I want this to load messages at the start of the program.

I would like a wxListCtrl with 3 columns in it. The number of rows in it will vary during run-time. In the first column of each row should be a wxCheckBox, which the user can check or uncheck. Is such an arrangement possible? Any example source code? wxCheckListBox comes close - but not close enough. Unfortunately, it does not derive from wxListCtrl, which contains the function InsertColumn() needed for multiple columns

Hi there. I am trying to display tabular data in a wxListCtrl. What I get from the script below are only the headers, not the items themselves. The documentation didn´t help me much; instead I was lost in ListItemId´s and different possibilities of inserting items and strings. I am sure the solution is only one step away, but I need somebody to point in the direction. Heres the script: from wxPython.wx import * class...

Hello. I am working on an XML editor that will not display the xml file as plain text, but will rather work with a combination of a tree view for the main element nodes and some kind of tabular view to view attributes. By this way, the user (i.e. me) will only have the opportunity to change textual contents and attribute values, but neither element nor attribute names. Building the tree view was not a problem, but I haven´t found a good...

Hello, I am working on a graphical MySQL Frontend written in python/wxPython. The results from a table query are displayed either in a wxGrid or in a wxListCtrl. I would prefer the latter because it underlines the read-only character of the data, but I am not happy with the way the results are displayed. The wxGrid with the results is laid out by the following code: resultsFrame = wxFrame(parent,-1,title) resultsTable =...

The .NET WebBrowser control in the Compact Framework 2.0 is a major headache. Once it takes the focus (e.g. by the user tapping on it) it keeps it and keyboard events are not passed to the form anymore even though KeyPreview is set to true. If there are no other controls on the form we don't get them at all to start with. I added a tiny textbox with same colors as the form so we can at least

Hi all. I just upgraded to wxpython 2.7 Its way cool. However, in one of my apps, i have embedded a flash activex control. I have had it working great in wxpython 2.6. After i upgraded to 2.7, i stopped receiving events from flash! But whats even weirder is that when i embed the flash activex in a wx.Frame instead of a wx.Panel, i do get the flash events! I am most mystified....does anyone have any idea here?

Dear All, My question refers to how best to organise my mouse events to correctly and efficiently give the effect I want. On my form I have a panel and that panel contains a number of controls. By setting up the MouseOver and MouseOut events for the panel I am able to change the panel's background while the mouse is over the panel. A very simple effect and one that is straightforward to implement. But, when the mouse cursor goes over...
