I want all of those objects to be check boxes (trade, bonus, soldiers, etc)

self.box = wxCheckListBox ( self.panel, 100, size = ( 250, 200 ), choices = self.trade, style = wxLB_HSCROLL )

In this line where I define the choices, I can only put one (self.trade) if I do any more it gets messed up. I tried choices = self.trade, self.bonus, etc. I've also tried choices = (self.trade, self.bonus, etc.) nothing works. what am I doing wrong? to clerify what I want, this is an audit program for a game. I need there to be checkboxes for these items, and based on if it's checked or not display something ex. if thanks it checked (print "Decommission tanks) if not checked don't print anything

Use a list with them all in. And you only need strings, not checkBox Items
