Rather than manually position each of your widgets in a window in wxPython, you can use a Sizer; there are various type of GridSizer that let you define rows and columns of widgets, and there's a BoxSizer which lets you set up either a single row or a single column. Here's a single column example.

Python has a number of GUIs ... and these days wxPython is the most popular. As one of the latter sessions of yesterday's Python Programming Course, I introduced the GUI and talked a little about how it's programmed, and the delegates put together a short sample application.

From a most interesting Saturday which was spent doing a one on one session on thread, wxPython, etc - some Python snippets that provide unusual demos and hard-to-find answers:
