My project requires me to read in multiple ascii files and process them. So I am going to go through the data and using conditional statements store the result in lists. After this, I need to store this data and plot some of it using matlab and display the matlab graph and relevant data on a display.

I have learnt python and in the process of learning wxPython for my GUI. However, i have some queries:

In order to display the result do you need to (read data in - process - write and store - read in and display on GUI?)

With wxPython is it possible to say click on the button and "transition" to another panel/frame or window. So think of it as a page 2. So i have 9 small cards with results and on button click need to go to page 2 for details.

Is it possible to have the 'live graph' in wxPython. I mean it reads data and dynamically changes?

My primary focus right now is how to integrate my processed data into the GUI.

Any help would be appreciated.


You could try wxPython's excellent tabbed notebook widget ...

    ''' pwx_Notebook_simple1.py
experiments with wxPython's wx.Notebook() widget
wx.Notebook(parent, id, pos, size, style, name)
tab position style=wx.NB_TOP is default
others are wx.NB_BOTTOM, wx.NB_LEFT or wx.NB_RIGHT

tested with Python273 and wxPython291

For Python32 downloaded the most recent
then simply extracted the wx folder to

note from vegaseat: also available for Python33 now

import wx

class MyPanel(wx.Panel):
    each panel instance gives the notbook page content and color
    def __init__(self, parent, bgcolor, toolbar=False):
        wx.Panel.__init__(self, parent, wx.ID_ANY)

app = wx.App(0)

# create an instance of a frame, no parent
caption = "testing simple wx.Notebook()"
frame = wx.Frame(None, -1, caption, size=(400,300))
# create an instance of a notebook, parent is the frame
notebook = wx.Notebook(frame, -1)
# create an instance of MyPanel
# each panel instance has the content and colour of a notebook page
panel1 = MyPanel(notebook, "yellow")
panel2 = MyPanel(notebook, "green")
panel3 = MyPanel(notebook, "red")
# now create the notebook pages
# add the panel content and title to each page
notebook.AddPage(panel1, "Page1")
notebook.AddPage(panel2, "Page2")
notebook.AddPage(panel3, "Page3")

# add a label to one of the panels (pages)
# the label will auto size to fit text
text = "What time does the two o'clock bus leave?"
label_1 = wx.StaticText(panel1, wx.ID_ANY, text)
