I am new to Python and I'm trying to make a simple updating window. Most suggest I should use wxtimer for the task. I have tried to get it going but it fails. Here is the code without a timer that works for me. I had been using time.sleep in my working terminal version. I've looked over several examples, but nothing seems to work on my system. You can see what I am trying to do by looking at the stuff that is commented out. Can anybody help?
import wx from get_last_google import last_price class EnterData(wx.Frame): def __init__(self): wx.Frame.__init__(self, None, wx.ID_ANY, 'Data Entry', size=(400, 100)) panel = wx.Panel(self, -1) #self.timer = wx.timer(self) #self.Bind(wx.EVT_TIMER, self.on_timer, self.timer) #self.timer.start(1000) text = wx.TextEntryDialog(None, "Enter ticker:", 'Real-Time Ticker', '<Enter Symbol>') if text.ShowModal()==wx.ID_OK: symbol=text.GetValue() self.Show(True) #def on_timer(self, event): a=last_price("",symbol) wx.StaticText(panel, -1, a.symbol+" "+str(a.Last)+" "+a.MDY, (10,10)) # this was different... #Could be anything really if __name__ == "__main__": app = wx.PySimpleApp() frame = EnterData().Show() app.MainLoop()
Here is the error I get...
Traceback (most recent call last): File "/Stocks/menu1.py", line 74, in <module> frame = EnterData().Show() File "/Stocks/menu1.py", line 38, in __init__ self.timer = wx.timer(self) AttributeError: 'module' object has no attribute 'timer'
