Hello!
I have designed an initial frame for a database app using this code

#! /usr/bin/env python
# OrnithobaseGUI.py

import wx, MySQLdb, wx.lib.intctrl

ID_HELP = 1
ID_ABOUT = 2
ID_LOG=3

class Ornithobase(wx.Frame):
	def __init__(self, parent, id, title):
		wx.Frame.__init__(self, parent, id, title, size=(750,225))

	#Define menus
		menubar = wx.MenuBar()
	#Define file menu
		file = wx.Menu()
		file.Append(ID_LOG, '&Log in')
		quit = wx.MenuItem(file, 1, '&Quit\tCtrl+Q')
		file.AppendItem(quit)
		self.Bind(wx.EVT_MENU, self.OnQuit, id=1)

	#Define help menu
		helpMenu = wx.Menu()
		helpMenu.Append(ID_HELP, '&Help')
		helpMenu.Append(ID_ABOUT, '&About')
		self.Bind(wx.EVT_MENU, self.OnAboutBox, id=ID_ABOUT)
		
#Append menus
		menubar.Append(file, '&File')
		menubar.Append(helpMenu, '&Help')
		self.SetMenuBar(menubar)
#Define main panel
		panel = wx.Panel(self, -1)
		vbox1 = wx.BoxSizer(wx.VERTICAL)
	#Define sizers
		#Vertical sizers
		hbox1 = wx.BoxSizer(wx.HORIZONTAL)
		#Horizontal sizers
		vbox1.Add(hbox1, 0, wx.ALIGN_LEFT | wx.ALL, 5)

		panel.SetSizer(vbox1)
		self.Centre()
		self.Show(True)

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

	def OnAboutBox(self, event):
		info = wx.AboutDialogInfo()
		info.SetIcon(wx.Icon('icons/exit.png', wx.BITMAP_TYPE_PNG))
		info.SetName('Watermark Image Processing')
		info.SetVersion('1.0b')
		description = open('docs/info.txt').read()
		info.SetDescription(description)
		info.SetCopyright('(C) 2010 Acrocephalus Soft')
		info.SetWebSite('http://www.acrocephalus.net')
		license = open('docs/licence.txt').read()
		info.SetLicence(license)
		info.AddDeveloper('Daniel Valverde')
		info.AddDocWriter('Daniel Valverde')
		info.AddArtist('Daniel Valverde')
		info.AddTranslator('Daniel Valverde')
		wx.AboutBox(info)

	def OnClose(self, event):
		self.Close(True)

app = wx.App()
Ornithobase(None, -1, 'Ornithobase 1.0b')
app.MainLoop()

Then, I have designed a dialog to connect to a MySQL database

#! /usr/bin/env python
# login.py
import wx, MySQLdb

class LoginDlg(wx.Dialog):
	def __init__(parent):
		wx.Dialog.__init__(parent, None, -1, 'Login to Ornithobase 1.0b', size=(250,150))

		# widgets
		userLbl = wx.StaticText(parent, -1, 'Username:', size=(75, -1))
		parent.userTxt = wx.TextCtrl(parent, -1, '', size=(200, -1))
		passwordLbl = wx.StaticText(parent, -1, 'Password:', size=(75, -1))
		parent.passwordTxt = wx.TextCtrl(parent, -1, '',style=wx.TE_PROCESS_ENTER|wx.TE_PASSWORD, size=(200, -1))
		loginBtn = wx.Button(parent, -1, 'Login')
		clearBtn = wx.Button(parent, wx.ID_CLEAR, 'Clear')
		parent.Bind(wx.EVT_BUTTON, parent.OnLogin,loginBtn)
		parent.Bind(wx.EVT_BUTTON, parent.OnClear, clearBtn)


		# sizer / layout 
		userSizer     = wx.BoxSizer(wx.HORIZONTAL)
		passwordSizer = wx.BoxSizer(wx.HORIZONTAL)
		btnSizer      = wx.BoxSizer(wx.HORIZONTAL)
		mainSizer     = wx.BoxSizer(wx.VERTICAL)

		userSizer.Add(userLbl, 0, wx.ALL, 5)
		userSizer.Add(parent.userTxt, 0, wx.ALL, 5)
		passwordSizer.Add(passwordLbl, 0, wx.LEFT|wx.RIGHT, 5)
		passwordSizer.Add(parent.passwordTxt, 0, wx.LEFT, 5)
		btnSizer.Add(loginBtn, 0, wx.ALL, 5)
		btnSizer.Add(clearBtn, 0, wx.ALL, 5)
		mainSizer.Add(userSizer, 0, wx.ALL, 0)
		mainSizer.Add(passwordSizer, 0, wx.ALL, 0)
		mainSizer.Add(btnSizer, 0, wx.ALL, 5)

		# Logged in variable
		parent.loggedIn = False

		parent.SetSizer(mainSizer)
		parent.Fit()
		parent.Layout()
	def OnLogin(parent, event):
		Username = parent.userTxt.GetValue()
		pwd = parent.passwordTxt.GetValue()
		try:
			db= MySQLdb.connect(host='localhost', user=Username , passwd=pwd, db='Ornithobase')
			cursor = db.cursor()
			print 'Connected'
			Login.Destroy()
		except:
			print 'Connection failed'
	def OnClear(parent, event):
		parent.userTxt.Clear()
		parent.passwordTxt.Clear()


app = wx.App()
Login = LoginDlg()
result = Login.ShowModal()

What I would like to do next, is to set up a system that when the user clicks on "File > Log in" it prompts the dialog in class

login

. I've been playing around with some options I've found on the web, but I haven't been able to use any of them. How can I do it?
Cheers!

And how are you implementing it?

from login import LoginDlg

If I do

from login import LoginDlg

it opens the login dialog without running the rest of the code. Then, if I login successfully, it connects but it does not show the app.

And how are you implementing it?

I am using the two codes on my first threat. I have not implemented it yet, because when I import the login class from the login.py file, and run the Ornithobase.py file, it just runs the login class and then nothing. I have no idea on how to proceed.

Deleted the last three lines of the login.py and it works.

Your login.py only may not be written as an actual script.

Cheers and Happy coding.

Thank you so much!

Cheers!
