PythonCard Auto Placement

Hi All,
I'm getting started with pythoncard.
I'm wondering if there is any way to auto-place the gui elements that I
use, so that they are all visible, and aligned?
I would use the "layout/resource" editors, but I'm blind, so I can't see
where the elements end up, and the controls for moving don't show up as
usable controls in my screen reader.
Any help is appreciated.

Thanks Much,
Brandon McGinty

The first part to your quesion is easy. Pythoncard uses a very simple
resource file format (just a plain vanilla Python dictionary) and so
one can simply write a Python that outputs the resource file and
automate the process.

The second part to your question might be harder. Are you saying the
Pythoncard controls don't show up as usable controls in your screen
reader, or the ones in the resource editor?

If it's the latter, you can simply use the method I described and
automatically create the resource file.

I am very familiar with Pythoncard and don't mind helping if I can but
I don't have any experience with screen reader.

Thanks, Tony, we long term newbies need to stick together ;-)) I just updated a few PythonCard versions of three of the modules from askMerlin, and posted them in a link right below the askMerlin100.py command line program. The PythonCard version of election.py in particular is very easy and illustrates what these programs do. You will have to install wxPython and PythonCard in order to use these, so I provide links for that. I must say,...

Hi to all folks here, i downloaded and "playing" with PythonCard and i just want to share my thoughts so maybe we can discuss a little about it. I was used to wxGlade before and i think PythonCard is even better. I like the separate implementation of GUI and Code that PythonCard provides, i also like the "binding system" so you can bind functions to events and have them executed at runtime. I also like that it does not force you to use...

I'm curious to know what others think of these two frameworks for building wxPython apps. PythonCard has been around longer, but its development seems to have slowed. The last release, 0.8.2, has been out for quite awhile now. Dabo is newer and seems to have gathered a lot of buzz. Anyone try both? What's your preference and why? Is one more robust than the other?

For serveral years, I have been looking for a way to migrate away from desktop GUI/client-server programming onto the browser based network computing model of programming.

Eventhough PythonCard hasn't keep up with the latest widgets in wxpython, the programs so created still works a lot better - until now. If you look at...
