You don't need this since its stored in self.filename.

If you want to write to it you need to store it in the object so this
should be self.txt1
You can't write the filename yet as it hasn't been fetched
> def OnOpen(self,event):
> self.dirname = ''
> dlg = wx.FileDialog(self, "Choose a file", self.dirname,"",
> "*.*", wx.OPEN)
> if dlg.ShowModal()==wx.ID_OK:
Here you get the filename but don't write it to the text control
