[Gerhard, quoting a blog]
> wxPython doesn't seem bad, but it lacks any documentation

I see this a lot, and it baffles me.  wxPython is a thin wrapper over
wxWidgets, which is very well documented.  Where they differ, the
wxWidgets documentation discusses those differences.  Add the excellent
wxPython demo, and you've got better documentation than some commercial
toolkits (MFC, for instance).

Is it just a communication problem - do newcomers not realise that the
wxWidgets documentation applies to wxPython?

(The latest version of the wxPython demo even lets you modify the demo
code at runtime, and compare the behaviour of your modified version with
the original, all without leaving the demo - fantastic!  Huge thanks to
whoever did that.)
