The wxNotebook method from the wxPython module allows you to show a lot of data in a limited window space. It brings up tabbed pages you can click on to open each page. Enough said, run the code and experience the possibilities this humble method gives you.

# experiments with wxNotebook
# make sure you have wxPython installed 
# for instance install with wxPython2.5-win32-unicode-2.5.4.1-py24.exe
# from http://prdownloads.sourceforge.net/wxpython/
# tested with Python24   vegaseat   18jul2005

Adopted the newer wxPython coding style, which identifies the namespace wx. The DrPython editor code completion plugin works well that way.
