I have the code below and the exact same code works when its put outside the function but does not when its called as a function, and it seems the function is being called correctly because the print line works

import wx

class DestroyButton(wx.Frame):

    def __init__(self, parent, id):
        wx.Frame.__init__(self, parent, id, "title")

        self.but1 = wx.Button(self, label = "click me")
        self.but2 = wx.Button(self, label = "destroy me")

        self.but1.Bind(wx.EVT_BUTTON, self.destroybut)

        self.vs1 = wx.BoxSizer(wx.VERTICAL)
        self.vs1.Add(self.but1, 1, flag = wx.EXPAND)
        self.vs1.Add(self.but2, 1, flag = wx.EXPAND)

        self.SetSizer(self.vs1)

        #self.vs1.Remove(self.but2)
        #self.SetSizer(self.vs1)

        
    def destroybut(self, event):

        print "button 2 is destroyed"
        self.vs1.Remove(self.but2)
        self.SetSizer(self.vs1)
                

app = wx.App(0)
frame1 = DestroyButton(parent = None, id = -1).Show()
app.MainLoop()

any advice?

This was the solution I found.

import wx

class DestroyButton(wx.Frame):

    def __init__(self, parent, id):
        wx.Frame.__init__(self, parent, id, "title")

        self.but1 = wx.Button(self, label = "click me")
        self.but2 = wx.Button(self, label = "destroy me")

        self.but1.Bind(wx.EVT_BUTTON, self.destroybut)

        self.vs1 = wx.BoxSizer(wx.VERTICAL)
        self.vs1.Add(self.but1, 1, flag = wx.EXPAND)
        self.vs1.Add(self.but2, 1, flag = wx.EXPAND)

        self.SetSizer(self.vs1)
        
    def destroybut(self, event):

        print "button 2 is destroyed"
        self.vs1.Remove(self.but2)
        self.vs1.Layout()


app = wx.App(0)
frame1 = DestroyButton(parent = None, id = -1).Show()
app.MainLoop()
