In the beginning when a particular client say c1 receives a message from c2 we pop a new frame and c2's name to the frame list. our problem is when c2 sends the next message how to find the frame that is already opened and append this message to the frame. Are there any facility to find the frame with the name stored in the frame list?

I need to identify and open an open frame to append messages to it.I could only find syntax and am having trouble understanding it.Throws unbound method error.I know that this error pops up when a method is called using a wrong object.But I cannot call this method using a wx.Window object as that is what am trying to obtain in the first place....

You don't need to pass it a wx.Window object, only a string. It can
optionally take a Window as the second argument, in order to restrict
the search to a particular part of the window hierarchy, but since
frames don't have parents, this would not be useful to you.
