I didn't use it, because i coudln't get it run.
I used (in Mainframe.py):
self.il = wxImageList(16, 16)

yes, that's right.

Maybe I explained a little to less. I'v updated "my wxPyAtol" Homepage
http://my.heim.at/franciss. (I hope, it works)
As a second mail, I received, Niki Spahiev recommends to use the
mime manager from the demo.
But in wxwindows, that seems so easy to initialize the imagelist with:
m_hImageList = SHGetFileInfo(".txt", FILE_ATTRIBUTE_NORMAL, &sfi,
sizeof(SHFILEINFO), dwFlags );

Yes, I will try this, but I'm not expert at the ctypes / calldll
but I keep going learning :)
