Hey guys,

I have made a small program called 'Py-mailer' which allows you to login with your Gmail credentials and send text-only messages to anyone. I uploaded it on SourceForge( http://www.tinyurl.com/m4ans4).

The next step I had to take was to make a GUI for it. So, I started with wxPython:

import wx

window=wx.App()

class pymailer(wx.Frame):
    def __init__(self):
        wx.Frame.__init__(self,None,-1,"Pymailer",size=(500,500))

        panel=wx.Panel(self,-1)

        menu=wx.MenuBar()
        items=wx.Menu()
        
        items.Append(201,"Quit")
        self.Bind(wx.EVT_LEFT_DOWN,self.Quit,id=201)

        menu.Append(items,"File")
        self.SetMenuBar(menu)

        wx.StaticText(panel,-1,"Please enter your Gmail login ID: ",pos=(10,10))
        wx.StaticText(panel,-1,"Please enter your Gmail login password:\n(will not be stored)",pos=(10,40))

        username=wx.TextCtrl(panel,101,"Login ID",pos=(220,10))
        password=wx.TextCtrl(panel,102,"Password",pos=(220,40))

        self.Centre()
        self.Show()

    def Quit(self,event):
        self.Close()    

pymailer()
window.MainLoop()

But, on clicking 'Quit' in the 'File' menu, nothing happens! I think it is because in line 29, I have not passed the ID of the event, so how do I pass the ID? Or, is because of some thing else?

Thanks

You need to bind the event to the menu, not left_click. Try self.Bind(wx.EVT_MENU,self.Quit,id=201) instead of
self.Bind(wx.EVT_LEFT_DOWN,self.Quit,id=201)

You need to bind the event to the menu, not left_click. Try self.Bind(wx.EVT_MENU,self.Quit,id=201) instead of
self.Bind(wx.EVT_LEFT_DOWN,self.Quit,id=201)

Thanks mate, it worked! ;)

I have advanced till here:

import smtplib
import time
import os
import wx

window=wx.App()

class pymailer(wx.Frame):
    def __init__(self):
        wx.Frame.__init__(self,None,-1,"Pymailer",size=(500,500))

        panel=wx.Panel(self,-1)

        menu=wx.MenuBar()
        items=wx.Menu()
        
        items.Append(201,"Quit")
        self.Bind(wx.EVT_MENU,self.Quit)

        menu.Append(items,"File")
        self.SetMenuBar(menu)

        wx.StaticText(panel,-1,"Welcome to Py-mailer.\nLogin with your Gmail credentials and you can send a text-only email to anyone quickly and easily.",pos=(10,10))
        wx.StaticText(panel,-1,"Please enter your Gmail login ID: ",pos=(10,100))
        wx.StaticText(panel,-1,"Please enter your Gmail login password:\n(will not be stored)",pos=(10,130))

        username=wx.TextCtrl(panel,101,"Login ID",pos=(220,100))
        password=wx.TextCtrl(panel,102,"Password",pos=(220,130))

        login=wx.Button(panel,103,label="Login",pos=(10,170))
        self.Bind(wx.EVT_LEFT_DOWN,self.login)

        self.Centre()
        self.Show()

    def Quit(self,event):
        self.Close()

    def login(self,event):
        s=smtplib.SMTP("smtp.gmail.com",587)
        s.starttls()

        try:
            wx.StaticText(panel,-1,"Logging in...",pos=(10,200))
            s.login(user,passw)
        except:
            wx.StaticText(panel,-1,"Failed",pos=(10,220))

pymailer()
window.MainLoop()

But, after entering the login details and clicking on 'Login', nothing happens. Any help?

Thank you

use self.Bind(wx.EVT_BUTTON, self.login) instead of self.Bind(wx.EVT_LEFT_DOWN,self.login)

also everywhere you put 'panel' put 'self.panel' instead so it can be accessed during login

Edited 7 Years Ago by winmic: found bug

What's the difference between EVT_BUTTON and EVT_LEFT_DOWN ?

Also, can you explain to me why I should use self.panel ?

Edited 7 Years Ago by sravan953: Type error

EVT_LEFT_DOWN doesn't work because wx.Button doesn't propagate EVT_LEFT_DOWN, it will only propagate wx.EVT_BUTTON. The thing is that objects like Button and ListCtrl will only propagate certain events, not all events. Take a look at the wxpython docs to see what events are used. http://www.wxpython.org/docs/api/wx.Button-class.html

As for using self.panel, in the constructor the variable panel is created, but when the constructor is done, panel is also destroyed. So in the login function, when 'panel' is used it errors because panel was destroyed. Using self.panel will allow access to the variable throughout the class until the class is destroyed. I'm not sure if I'm explaining it well enough, but if there are lots of tutorials, ect. on class structure floating about the web that can help.

Good luck, and I'm looking forward to seeing this in action!

winmic, if I use panel , it gives this error:

Traceback (most recent call last):

If I use self.panel , it gives this error:

Anyways, this is the code till now:

Also, when I used self.panel , I replaced panel with self.panel everywhere, just thought I'd let you know!

Any other bugs in the code?

Thanks

Hmm...I too don't know why self.panel isn't working. I will get back to you about that.

Now, what should I do to make a button(called 'Next>'), which on being clicked will 'refresh' the screen and display some new contents? I hope you understand me!

Edited 7 Years Ago by sravan953: n/a

So I forgot something with events, you can make them respond to a certain id. If you have tried to File->Quit recently you'll see that it will make the about:dialog appear. If you have objects that propagate the same event then you'll want them id specific. so self.Bind(wx.EVT_MENU,self.Quit) becomes self.Bind(wx.EVT_MENU,self.Quit, id=201). The same thing will need to be done for the about menu event, and if you add another button the button event will need to be id specific.

How to add new content really depends on specifically what you want to do. I'm guessing that you want to have completely new content where all old content is destroyed, then you would probably want to create a new wx.Panel and content. I could help a little more if you were a little more specific.

BTW, have you thought about how your going to get the username and password out of the TextCtrl?

Edited 7 Years Ago by winmic: new question

I don't think getting the values will be a problem, because I've heard of GetValues() and Google it for help.

The problem is: the self.panel doesn't at all work...

One more question:

viewm=wx.Menu()
viewm.Append(202,"About")        self.Bind(wx.EVT_MENU,self.About,id=302)

def About(self,event,id=302):
    about=wx.AboutDialogInfo()

-but it doesn't work. How do I specify the ID when defining the function?

Thanks

You don't need the id as a method parameter, but at least try to match the id in the lines above, 202 is not the same as 302.

self.panel will work if you use it throughout the class! Search for 'panel' with your editor.

I did what you told:

viewm.Append(202,"About")     self.Bind(wx.EVT_MENU,self.About,id=202)

def About(self,event):
about=wx.AboutDialogInfo()

But, only "Quit" works, and "About" doesn't.

Also, if I use self.panel throughout, it says:

I defined user,passw,to,subject,message in the class to make it available to all functions, but it says variable not defined, so I had to define everything outside the class like this:

import smtplib

window=wx.App()

Why doesn't it work if I define the variables in the class?

They won't work inside the class unless you put 'self.' in front of them. If you just use the variable user inside __init__ user is destroyed at the end of __init__. What you'll want to do is use self.user to make it a class variable and not a function variable. Then you won't need to make them global.

Here are the first few lines, I did as you told:

class pymailer(wx.Frame):

    self.info={}
    self.user=""
    self.passw=""
    
    def __init__(self):
.
.
.
password=wx.TextCtrl(self.panel,102,"Password",pos=(220,130))
        self.passw=password.GetValue()

But it still doesn't work...

This is the full code for reference:

        except:

        message=self.info["Message"]
        msg="To: "+to+"\nSubject: "+subject+"\n"+message
        s.sendmail(user,to,msg)
        s.quit()

pymailer()
window.MainLoop()

On running, after entering all details (Login--> 'Failed', don't know why) and clicking on 'Send' it says:

Traceback (most recent call last):
File "C:\Documents and Settings\sravan953\My Documents\Sravan\PYTHON\GUI.py", line 98, in Send
s.sendmail(user,to,msg)
NameError: global name 'user' is not defined

Well, there are two problems.

1) in line 98, user should be self.user which will solve the error message. in line 88 user, passw should be self.user, self.passw

2) After fixing those two lines, try printing self.user and self.passw in the login function. When I did that it said that self.user is 'Login ID' and self.passw is 'Password' even after changing the user and password. The problem lies in where you GetValue(), you have it in __init__ where it will get the starting values when it should be in the functions that use it so user input is read.

Here's the code that seems to be working, with the changes from above. I've also added style=wx.TE_PASSWORD in line 46 to mask the password.

Thanks, I will surely make the corrections try it out. And, in wx.TE_PASSWORD , what does TE stand for?
