class wx.SystemSettings(object)

Possible constructors:

SystemSettings()

SystemSettings allows the application to ask for details about the system.


Methods

__init__(self)

Default constructor.

You don’t need to create an instance of wx.SystemSettings since all of its functions are static.



static GetAppearance()

Returns the object describing the current system appearance.

Return type

wx.SystemAppearance

New in version 4.1/wxWidgets-3.1.3.



static GetColour(index)

Returns a system colour.

Parameters

index (SystemColour) – Can be one of the wx.SystemColour enum values.

Return type

wx.Colour

Returns

The returned colour is always valid.



static GetFont(index)

Returns a system font.

Parameters

index (SystemFont) – Can be one of the wx.SystemFont enum values.

Return type

wx.Font

Returns

The returned font is always valid.



static GetMetric(index, win=None)

Returns the value of a system metric, or -1 if the metric is not supported on the current system.

The value of win determines if the metric returned is a global value or a wx.Window based value, in which case it might determine the widget, the display the window is on, or something similar. The window given should be as close to the metric as possible (e.g. a wx.TopLevelWindow in case of the wx.SYS_CAPTION_Y metric).

index can be one of the wx.SystemMetric enum values.

win is a pointer to the window for which the metric is requested. Specifying the win parameter is encouraged, because some metrics on some ports are not supported without one,or they might be capable of reporting better values if given one. If a window does not make sense for a metric, one should still be given, as for example it might determine which displays cursor width is requested with wx.SYS_CURSOR_X.
