wx.FontPickerCtrl¶

This control allows the user to select a font.

The generic implementation is a button which brings up a wx.FontDialog when clicked. Native implementation may differ but this is usually a (small) widget which give access to the font-chooser dialog. It is only available if USE_FONTPICKERCTRL is set to 1 (the default).

Window Styles¶

This class supports the following styles:

• wx.FNTP_DEFAULT_STYLE: The default style: wx.FNTP_FONTDESC_AS_LABEL | wx.FNTP_USEFONT_FOR_LABEL.

• wx.FNTP_USE_TEXTCTRL: Creates a text control to the left of the picker button which is completely managed by the wx.FontPickerCtrl and which can be used by the user to specify a font (see SetSelectedFont). The text control is automatically synchronized with button’s value. Use functions defined in wx.PickerBase to modify the text control.

• wx.FNTP_FONTDESC_AS_LABEL: Keeps the label of the button updated with the fontface name and the font size. E.g. choosing “Times New Roman bold, italic with

size 10” from the fontdialog, will update the label (overwriting any previous label) with the “Times New Roman, 10” text.

• wx.FNTP_USEFONT_FOR_LABEL: Uses the currently selected font to draw the label of the button.

Events Emitted by this Class¶

Handlers bound for the following event types will receive a wx.FontPickerEvent parameter.

• EVT_FONTPICKER_CHANGED: The user changed the font selected in the control either using the button or using text control (see wx.FNTP_USE_TEXTCTRL; note that in this case the event is fired only if the user’s input is valid, i.e. recognizable).

Class API¶

class wx.FontPickerCtrl(PickerBase)

Possible constructors:

FontPickerCtrl()

FontPickerCtrl(parent, id=ID_ANY, font=NullFont, pos=DefaultPosition,
size=DefaultSize, style=FNTP_DEFAULT_STYLE, validator=DefaultValidator,
name=FontPickerCtrlNameStr)


This control allows the user to select a font.

Methods¶

__init__(self, *args, **kw)

__init__ (self)

__init__ (self, parent, id=ID_ANY, font=NullFont, pos=DefaultPosition, size=DefaultSize, style=FNTP_DEFAULT_STYLE, validator=DefaultValidator, name=FontPickerCtrlNameStr)

Initializes the object and calls Create with all the parameters.

Parameters

Create(self, parent, id=ID_ANY, font=NullFont, pos=DefaultPosition, size=DefaultSize, style=FNTP_DEFAULT_STYLE, validator=DefaultValidator, name=FontPickerCtrlNameStr)

Creates this widget with given parameters.

Parameters
• parent (wx.Window) – Parent window, must not be not None.

• id (wx.WindowID) – The identifier for the control.

• font (wx.Font) – The initial font shown in the control. If wx.NullFont is given, the default font is used.

• pos (wx.Point) – Initial position.

• size (wx.Size) – Initial size.

• style (long) – The window style, see FNTP_ flags.

• validator (wx.Validator) – Validator which can be used for additional date checks.

• name (string) – Control name.

Return type

bool

Returns

True if the control was successfully created or False if creation failed.

static GetClassDefaultAttributes(variant=WINDOW_VARIANT_NORMAL)
Parameters

variant (WindowVariant) –

Return type

wx.VisualAttributes

GetMaxPointSize(self)

Returns the maximum point size value allowed for the user-chosen font.

Return type

int

GetMinPointSize(self)

Returns the minimum point size value allowed for the user-chosen font.

Return type

int

New in version 4.1/wxWidgets-3.1.1.

GetSelectedColour(self)

Returns the currently selected colour.

Note that the colour of the font can only be set by the user under Windows currently, elsewhere this method simply returns the colour previously set by SetSelectedColour or black if it hadn’t been called.

Return type

wx.Colour

New in version 4.1/wxWidgets-3.1.0.

GetSelectedFont(self)

Returns the currently selected font.

Note that this function is completely different from wx.Window.GetFont .

Return type

wx.Font

SetMaxPointSize(self, max)

Sets the maximum point size value allowed for the user-chosen font.

The default value is 100. Note that big fonts can require a lot of memory and CPU time both for creation and for rendering; thus, specially because the user has the option to specify the fontsize through a text control (see wx.FNTP_USE_TEXTCTRL), it’s a good idea to put a limit to the maximum font size when huge fonts do not make much sense.

Parameters

max (int) –

SetMinPointSize(self, min)

Sets the minimum point size value allowed for the user-chosen font.

The default value is 0.

Parameters

min (int) –

New in version 4.1/wxWidgets-3.1.1.

SetSelectedColour(self, colour)

Sets the font colour.

The font colour is actually only used under Windows currently, but this function is available under all platforms for consistency.

Parameters

colour (wx.Colour) –

New in version 4.1/wxWidgets-3.1.0.

SetSelectedFont(self, font)

Sets the currently selected font.

Note that this function is completely different from wx.Window.SetFont .

Parameters

font (wx.Font) –
