Events in Com Object for Python

I have MapPoint working in Python, and I'm trying to cancel events on
the map, but I can't seem to make that happen. I'm responding to the
events successfully in my panel object. My code is like this:

global MapPointMod
MapPointMod =
win32com.client .gencache.Ensur eModule("{51C0A 9CA-F7B7-4F5A-96F4-43927C6FA50F}",
0, 1, 0)

class MyPanel(wx.Pane l):
def __init__(self, *args, **kwds):
# begin wxGlade: MyPanel.__init_ _
kwds["style"] = wx.TAB_TRAVERSA L
wx.Panel.__init __(self, *args, **kwds)
self.frame = args[0]

MyMap = MakeActiveXClas s(MapPointMod.M appointControl,
self.window_1 = MyMap(self, -1)
self.window_1.O penMap("C:\\TEM P\\GPS_ON.ptt")
def OnBeforeClick(s elf, Button, Shift, X, Y, Cancel):
print "tada"
My event fires just fine, but I can't seem to figure out how to cancel
the event so that mappoint doesn't do its stuff with it...I've tried
setting Cancel based on the mappoint specs, but it doesn't seem to get
sent back anywhere...

Any ideas please?

Greetings: I'm been programming Delphi for a while and am trying to get into the Python mindset. In Delphi, you can have a component class that has properties, methods, and events. Properties and methods translate pretty easily to Python but I'm not sure about the best way to handle events. For example, from fxn retrbinary in ftplib there is: while 1: data = conn.recv(blocksize)

Hi, Has anyone managed to hook into visual studio dot net build events (or any other events)? I can add my own button to a toolbar from python and handle that events due to DispatchWithEvents(item, ButtonEvent) working on a button item.

Any help would...

I am writing an Python 2.3 extension in C, and I would like to create events (Tk-style) from an external source. I use a library that already parses the events into a C structure. This library can also supply file ids for poll() or select() calls (all this is on Linux, BTW). What's the preferred way to doing this? Can I register my own event handlers to the Python runtime, including the file ids to poll/to do select on, as in Tcl/Tk? Or...

Here is another non-pythonic question from the Java Developer. (I beg for forgiveness...) Does Python have a mechanism for events/event-driven programming? I'm not necessarily talking about just GUIs either, I'm interested in using events for other parts of an application as well. If there isn't some sort of event mechanism built into Python, where might I find some information about implementing one?

Hello folks, I am unable to find appropriate documentation on the type promotion of bit-fields when using the generalised comparison operator "<=>".

Overview: Windows 11 and 10 have less user interface control over operating system update behaviour than previous versions of Windows. In Windows 11 and 10, there is no way to turn off the Windows Update option using the Control Panel or Settings app; it automatically checks for updates and installs any it finds, whether you like it or not. For most users, this new feature is actually very convenient. If you want to control the update process,...
