# wx.FileDialogCustomize¶

Used with wx.FileDialogCustomizeHook to add custom controls to wx.FileDialog.

An object of this class is passed to wx.FileDialogCustomizeHook.AddCustomControls to allow it to actually add controls to the dialog.

The pointers returned by the functions of this class belong to wxWidgets and should not be deleted by the application, just as Window-derived objects (even if these controls do not inherit from wx.Window). These pointers become invalid when wx.FileDialog.ShowModal returns, and the dialog containing them is destroyed, and the latest point at which they can be still used is when wx.FileDialogCustomizeHook.TransferDataFromCustomControls is called.

New in version 4.1/wxWidgets-3.1.7.

## Class API¶

class wx.FileDialogCustomize(object)

Used with FileDialogCustomizeHook to add custom controls to FileDialog.

### Methods¶

AddButton(self, label)

Add a button with the specified label.

Parameters

label (string) –

Return type

wx.FileDialogButton

AddCheckBox(self, label)

Add a checkbox with the specified label.

Parameters

label (string) –

Return type

wx.FileDialogCheckBox

AddChoice(self, strings)

The combobox doesn’t have any initial selection, i.e. wx.FileDialogChoice.GetSelection returns NOT_FOUND , if some item must be selected, use wx.FileDialogChoice.SetSelection explicitly to do it.

Parameters

strings (list of strings) – A not None pointer to an array of n strings.

Return type

wx.FileDialogChoice

AddRadioButton(self, label)

The first radio button added will be initially checked. All the radio buttons added immediately after it will become part of the same radio group and will not be checked, but checking any one of them later will uncheck the first button and all the other ones.

If two consecutive but distinct radio groups are required, AddStaticText with an empty label can be used to separate them.

Parameters

label (string) –

Return type

AddStaticText(self, label)

Add a static text with the given contents.

The contents of the static text can be updated later, i.e. it doesn’t need to be actually static.

Parameters

label (string) –

Return type

wx.FileDialogStaticText

AddTextCtrl(self, label="")

Add a text control with an optional label preceding it.

Unlike all the other functions for adding controls, the label parameter here doesn’t specify the contents of the text control itself, but rather the label appearing before it. Unlike static controls added by AddStaticText , this label is guaranteed to be immediately adjacent to it.

If label is empty, no label is created.

Parameters

label (string) –

Return type

wx.FileDialogTextCtrl
