phoenix_title wx.WindowDisabler

This class disables all top level windows of the application (maybe with the exception of one of them) in its constructor and enables them back in its destructor.

This is useful when you want to indicate to the user that the application is currently busy and cannot respond to user input.

Note

When instantiated, this affects only windows shown on the screen and not already disabled.

Methods

__init__(self, *args, **kw)

overload Overloaded Implementations:



__init__ (self, disable=True)

Disables all top level windows of the applications.

If disable is false nothing is done. This can be convenient if the windows should be disabled depending on some condition.

Parameters

disable (bool) –

New in version 2.9.0.



__init__ (self, winToSkip)

Disables all top level windows of the applications with the exception of winToSkip if it is not None.

Notice that under MSW if winToSkip appears in the taskbar, the user will be able to close the entire application (even though its main window is disabled) by right clicking on the taskbar icon and selecting the appropriate “Close” command from the context menu. To prevent this from happening you may want to use wx.FRAME_TOOL_WINDOW, if applicable, or wx.FRAME_NO_TASKBAR style when creating the window that will remain enabled.

Parameters

winToSkip (wx.Window) –





__enter__(self)


__exit__(self, exc_type, exc_val, exc_tb)
