help with wxSlider & wxPython

I have the code below. I have changed the background of the frame to
white, but I cannot get the wxSlider to not be the ugly gray color.
Can someone tell me how to change it to a transparent background (I
tried wxTRANSPARENT_W INDOW without success)?

import os
from wxPython.wx import *
ID_ABOUT=101
ID_EXIT=110
class MainWindow(wxFr ame):
def __init__(self,p arent,id,title) :
wxFrame.__init_ _(self,parent,w xID_ANY, title, size = (
800,600),style= wxDEFAULT_FRAME _STYLE|wxNO_FUL L_REPAINT_ON_RE SIZE)
#self.control = wxTextCtrl(self , 1, style=wxTE_MULT ILINE)
wxStaticText(se lf, -1, "Distance to Move", (30, 40))
slider = wxSlider(self, 100, 25, 0, 3600, (30, 60), (400,
-1),wxSL_HORIZON TAL | wxSL_TOP | wxSL_AUTOTICKS | wxSL_LABELS |
wxTRANSPARENT_W INDOW)
slider.SetTickF req(1, 1)
slider.SetValue (1800)
self.CreateStat usBar() # A StatusBar in the bottom of the
window
# Setting up the menu.
filemenu= wxMenu()
filemenu.Append (ID_ABOUT, "&About"," Version 001")
filemenu.Append Separator()
filemenu.Append (ID_EXIT,"E&xit "," Terminate the program")
# Creating the menubar.
menuBar = wxMenuBar()
menuBar.Append( filemenu,"&File ") # Adding the "filemenu" to the
MenuBar
self.SetMenuBar (menuBar) # Adding the MenuBar to the Frame
content.
EVT_MENU(self, ID_ABOUT, self.OnAbout) # attach the menu-event
ID_ABOUT to the
EVT_MENU(self, ID_EXIT, self.OnExit) # attach the menu-event
ID_EXIT to the
self.SetBackgro undColour(wxWHI TE)
self.Show(true)
self.Center(wxB OTH)
def OnAbout(self,e) :
d= wxMessageDialog ( self, "test","Abo ut test", wxOK)
d.ShowModal() # Shows it
d.Destroy() # finally destroy it when finished.
def OnExit(self,e):
self.Close(true ) # Close the frame.
app = wxPySimpleApp()
frame = MainWindow(None , -1, "test")
app.MainLoop()

TIA,
Scott

Hi, i'm developing an app in wxPython but when i have an error in the wxPython code i've written, the app starts, an extra windows is opened where the error messages are print and then it closes again. Off course, this is to fast for the human eye to read :) How can i avoid this and have the wxPython messages arrive at the console just like the "normal" python error messages? Thanks,
