Two days... That seems a bit long. Didn't you study the demo? Anyway,
just a couple comments:
1 - If you want a normal-looking dialog, you'd better replace:
wxDialog.__init__(self, parent, -1, title, style=wxRESIZE_BORDER)
wxDialog.__init__(self, parent, -1, title,
2 - Although it probably doen't make a great deal of difference here as
it's the only window in the sizer, generally it is better to for a
wxNotebookCtrl to be managed by a wxNotebookSizer. Things like Fit() or
SetSizeHints() should work better that way.
In this example, because the sizer has just the one child, it is
sufficient to replace:
dialog_sizer = wxBoxSizer(wxVERTICAL)
dialog_sizer.Add(notebook, 1, wxEXPAND|wxALL, 5)
dialog_sizer = wxNotebookSizer(notebook)
but in general, the wxNotebookSizer would be an additional sizer:
instead of adding the notebook control directly to some sizer, you'd
add the wxNotebookSizer.
Personally, I'd say that the fact than you need a special kind of sizer
for notebooks would indicate that the interface between windows and
sizers isn't quite optimal[*]. Still, overall it works well.
[*] Perhaps there should something like a 'resizable' base class, which
both wxSizers and wxWindows should derive from?
