No, 4 problems:

"""wxpython.org's onlinedocs are down right now so bear with me""" =>
hasn't downloaded the off-line docs.

Typing in "wxlistbox" on the index tab of the win32 version of the
off-line docs (wx.chm) takes one straight to:

A listbox is used to select one or more of a list of strings.
i.e. Steve Holden's point, that wxListBox seems an unlikely choice.

I generally tend to agree with the "let him stew" but inevitably
someone will answer the question with a level of tedious detail
exceeded only by that of the manual for the Holy Grenade of Antioch,
instead of showing/telling the newbies how to find their own answers.
