wxPython and loading multiple panels (code included)

P: n/a
Hi,

i need to develop a gui which will load several "windows" depending on
what the users selects in the menu and i thought i could accomplish this
with panels.
What i'm trying to do to test this is load an initial panel and then
when the user hits a button load a second panel. This doesn't seem to work.

1. what's the appropriate way of switching panels?
2. the loadNewPanel function seem wrong. I always get loading panel two".

Thanks,
Benedict
