# make a list box with default choices
box = wxListBox(self, -1, choices=['a','b','c'])
# append a new entry
box.Append('d')
# reset the listbox to something else
box.Set(['1','2','3'])

# delete the second entry selection
box.Delete(1)

# get the index of currently selected entry
print box.GetSelection()

# get the string that is selected
print box.GetStringSelection()

# make a callback for when an entry is selected
def listboxhandler(evt):
     box = evt.GetEventObject()
     print box.GetSelection(), "selected index"
     print box.GetStringSelection(), "selected item"

EVT_LISTBOX(box, box.GetId(), listboxhandler)
