Solution to binding a lambda to an event in wxPython with arguments
import wx
class MyForm(wx.Frame):
def __init__(self):
wx.Frame.__init__(self, None, wx.ID_ANY, "Programmatic binding of accelerators in wxPython", size=(450,150))
# Add a panel so it looks the correct on all platforms
panel = wx.Panel(self, wx.ID_ANY)
bindings = [
(wx.ACCEL_CTRL, wx.WXK_UP, 'up'),
(wx.ACCEL_CTRL, wx.WXK_DOWN, 'down'),
(wx.ACCEL_CTRL, wx.WXK_LEFT, 'left'),
(wx.ACCEL_CTRL, wx.WXK_RIGHT, 'right'),
accelEntries = []
for binding in bindings:
eventId = wx.NewId()
accelEntries.append( (binding[0], binding[1], eventId) )
self.Bind(wx.EVT_MENU, lambda evt, temp=binding[2]: self.on_move(evt, temp), id=eventId)
accelTable = wx.AcceleratorTable(accelEntries)
self.SetAcceleratorTable(accelTable )
def on_move(self, Event, direction):
print "You pressed CTRL+"+direction
# Run the program
if __name__ == "__main__":
app = wx.App(False)
frame = MyForm()
