class App(wx.App)

PyAlaCarte standalone application.


__init__(self, filename=None)

Construct a wx.App object.

  • redirect – Should sys.stdout and sys.stderr be redirected? Defaults to False. If filename is None then output will be redirected to a window that pops up as needed. (You can control what kind of window is created for the output by resetting the class variable outputWindowClass to a class of your choosing.)

  • filename – The name of a file to redirect output to, if redirect is True.

  • useBestVisual – Should the app try to use the best available visual provided by the system (only relevant on systems that have more than one visual.) This parameter must be used instead of calling SetUseBestVisual later on because it must be set before the underlying GUI toolkit is initialized.

  • clearSigInt – Should SIGINT be cleared? This allows the app to terminate upon a Ctrl-C in the console like other GUI apps will.


You should override OnInit to do application initialization to ensure that the system, toolkit and wxWidgets are fully initialized.
