In the first part of this series, I wrote on all the non-agw notebook widgets included with wxPython. For this second article, I will be focusing on the two notebooks that are in the AGW library of wxPython. AGW stands for Advanced Generic Widgets, a set of widgets that are written in Python instead of wrapped C++ code. I personally think that AGW is also a callback to its amazing author, Andrea Gavana. Regardless, the two widgets in this review will be the FlatNotebook and another AUI Notebook. The FlatNotebook has a great demo and I will spend most of this article on demos I’ve created that are based on it. The AUI Notebook is a part of agw.aui. While the demo for agw.aui is cool, it focuses on AUI in general, not the notebook. So I’ll just show you what I can glean from that. Now, let’s get cracking!
Update: The API changed slightly when it comes to AGW-related widgets. Basically some style flags in wxPython 22.214.171.124+ now require the agw-specific style flags. To use them, you’ll need to use the agwStyle keyword. See Andrea’s docs for more info: http://xoomer.virgilio.it/infinity77/AGW_Docs/ If you run into an error, try changing that first or post to the mailing list.
