Module wx.aui

The wx.aui module is an Advanced User Interface library that aims to implement "cutting-edge" interface usability and design features so developers can quickly and easily create beautiful and usable application interfaces.

Vision and Design Principles

wx.aui attempts to encapsulate the following aspects of the user interface:

wx.aui adheres to the following principles


The following example shows a simple implementation that utilizes wx.aui.AuiManager to manage three text controls in a frame window:

import wx
import wx.aui

class MyFrame(wx.Frame):

    def __init__(self, parent, id=-1, title='wx.aui Test',
                 pos=wx.DefaultPosition, size=(800, 600),
        wx.Frame.__init__(self, parent, id, title, pos, size, style)

        self._mgr = wx.aui.AuiManager(self)

        # create several text controls
        text1 = wx.TextCtrl(self, -1, 'Pane 1 - sample text',
                            wx.DefaultPosition, wx.Size(200,150),
                            wx.NO_BORDER | wx.TE_MULTILINE)

        text2 = wx.TextCtrl(self, -1, 'Pane 2 - sample text',
                            wx.DefaultPosition, wx.Size(200,150),
                            wx.NO_BORDER | wx.TE_MULTILINE)

        text3 = wx.TextCtrl(self, -1, 'Main content window',
                            wx.DefaultPosition, wx.Size(200,150),
                            wx.NO_BORDER | wx.TE_MULTILINE)

        # add the panes to the manager
        self._mgr.AddPane(text1, wx.LEFT, 'Pane Number One')
        self._mgr.AddPane(text2, wx.BOTTOM, 'Pane Number Two')
        self._mgr.AddPane(text3, wx.CENTER)

        # tell the manager to 'commit' all the changes just made

        self.Bind(wx.EVT_CLOSE, self.OnClose)

    def OnClose(self, event):
        # deinitialize the frame manager
        # delete the frame

app = wx.App()
frame = MyFrame(None)
