Oh sorry,
I mean selectable, so you can select the text with the mouse.

I would use a TextCtrl. You can set it's style to read-only if all you
really want is selectable text which can't be edited by the user. Or if
you DO want it to resemble a StaticText, also remove the border style
and change the background Colour. The only apparent downside of this
approach is you still get a blinking cursor (at least on WinXP).
import wx

app = wx.PySimpleApp( )
frame = wx.Frame(None, -1, "Test")

panel = wx.Panel(frame, -1)
sizer = wx.BoxSizer(wx. VERTICAL)
panel.SetSizer( sizer)

label1 = wx.TextCtrl(pan el, -1, "Read-only", style=wx.TE_REA DONLY)
sizer.Add(label 1, 0, flag=wx.EXPAND| wx.ALL, border=10)

label2 = wx.TextCtrl(pan el, -1,
"Read-only + No Border + Change BG Color",
style=wx.TE_REA DONLY|wx.NO_BOR DER)
label2.SetBackg roundColour(pan el.GetBackgroun dColour())
sizer.Add(label 2, 0, flag=wx.EXPAND| wx.ALL, border=10)

frame.Show(True )

I'm trying to learn wxPython, but I can't seem to find much documentation. The wxPython website says that all advanced (and even some basic) documentation for wxPython is only available in C++ syntax in the main wxWindows documentation. It also says that the samples will help, but I can't seem to make sense of them. Should I just use a not-as-good GUI like Tkinter or a not-as-common one like Anygui or PyUI if I want to have documentation?...

Hello wxPythoneers. I have a problem with a dialog box derived from wxFrame which has a wxComboBox as main element.

This is because the event function for the combobox populates the sizer for the window with...
