WxListBox

I'm wanting to put a listbox in the place of a textctrl I'm using in my
application because I'm running out of space in my textctrl. The online
documentation is down at wxpython.org so I have no idea how to construct this
control or anything. Can someone help me out. Here's what I'm doing with the
WxTextCtrl:

self.text_ctrl_4 = wx.TextCtrl(self, -1, "", style=wx.TE_MULTILINE)
sizer_1.Add(self.text_ctrl_4, 6, wx.LEFT|wx.RIGHT|wx.EXPAND, 80)
self.text_ctrl_4.AppendText(str(count) + '\t\t' + str(address) + '\t\t'
+ str(pageNumber) + '\t\t' + str(pageArray[pageNumber, 1]) +'\r\n')

I'm wanting to implement something similar with a listbox, any thoughts?

Well, my *first* thought was "Isn't a listbox supposed to allow choice
between alternative? How can that substitute for what looks like a very
complex text input?"

My second thought was "It's not very helpful to use a name like
'text_ctrl_4' in the code".

I'm also not really sure what the double-tabs are supposed to do.

Perhaps you could explain exactly what you'd like your program to do
here, as at present it's not even clear whether this code is intended to
act as input as well as output? What's wrong with what happens now, and
how would you like to change it?

Steve
