Hey Robert;

Thanks for getting back to me so soon.  I really appreciate it.

You called it!  The ColourSelect was being positioned outside the
bounds of the dialog box.  The corrected code is now as follows;

class wxPlotterSettingsDialog(wxDialog):
    def __init__(self, parent):        
        wxDialog.__init__(self, parent, -1, "wxPlotter Settings",
wxDefaultPosition, wxSize(350, 200))
        self.static = wxStaticText(self, -1, "Number of points to
draw: ", wxPoint(70, 22))
        self.linesSpin = wxSpinCtrl(self, 20, "", wxPoint(200, 20),
wxSize(55, 20))
        self.linesSpin.SetRange(1, 360)
        self.linesSpin.SetValue(parent.lineCount)
        self.static = wxStaticText(self, -1, "Line Color: ",
wxPoint(70, 50))              
        self.colorselect = ColourSelect(self, wxPoint(200, 46), [0, 0,
110], wxSize(55, 20))                        
        self.static = wxStaticText(self, -1, "Background Color: ",
wxPoint(70, 75))
        self.colorselect = ColourSelect(self, wxPoint(200, 73), [0, 0,
110], wxSize(55, 20))                        
        self.static = wxStaticText(self, -1, "Line Ending: ",
wxPoint(70, 102))
        self.lineEnding1 = wxRadioButton(self, 25, "Rectangle", (140,
100))
        self.lineEnding2 = wxRadioButton(self, 26, "Circle", (215,
100))
        self.lineEnding3 = wxRadioButton(self, 27, "None", (270, 100))
        self.button = wxButton(self, wxID_OK, " OK ", wxPoint(95,
140), wxDefaultSize).SetDefault()
        self.button = wxButton(self, wxID_CANCEL, " Cancel ",
wxPoint(175, 140), wxDefaultSize)
        
        EVT_BUTTON(self, 2001, self.OnOK)
        EVT_SPIN(self, 2002, self.OnPointsSpin)        

    def OnOK(self, event):
        self.wnd.Stop()
        self.EndModal(wxID_OK)

    def OnPointsSpin(self, event):
        print "Spin control selected."

    def GetLines(self):
        return self.linesSpin.GetValue()

    def GetLineEnding(self):
        print "lineEnding1 = ", self.lineEnding1.GetValue()
        print "lineEnding2 = ", self.lineEnding2.GetValue()
        print "lineEnding3 = ", self.lineEnding3.GetValue()
        return 0


And thank you for recommending that I look into using sizers as well.
Yet another item to learn in effectively developing with wxPython.

Again, thank you very, very much for your time, help, and patience...
