ToasterBox is a cross-platform widget to make the creation of MSN style “toaster” popups easier.
ToasterBox is a cross-platform widget to make the creation of MSN style “toaster” popups easier. The syntax is really easy especially if you are familiar with the syntax of wxPython.
It has 2 main styles:
Both styles support the setting of ToasterBox position (on screen coordinates), size, the time after which the ToasterBox is destroyed (linger), and the scroll speed of ToasterBox.
import wx import wx.lib.agw.toasterbox as TB class MyFrame(wx.Frame): def __init__(self, parent): wx.Frame.__init__(self, parent, -1, "ToasterBox Demo") toaster = TB.ToasterBox(self, tbstyle=TB.TB_COMPLEX) toaster.SetPopupPauseTime(3000) tbpanel = toaster.GetToasterBoxWindow() panel = wx.Panel(tbpanel, -1) sizer = wx.BoxSizer(wx.VERTICAL) button = wx.Button(panel, wx.ID_ANY, "Simple button") sizer.Add(button, 0, wx.EXPAND) panel.SetSizer(sizer) toaster.AddPanel(panel) wx.CallLater(1000, toaster.Play) # our normal wxApp-derived class, as usual app = wx.PySimpleApp() frame = MyFrame(None) app.SetTopWindow(frame) frame.Show() app.MainLoop()
This code snippet can be downloaded, see this example script.
Some of the AGW snippets of code in the documentation use images and external files (to create bitmaps or access external data). As these files are not provided in these snippets, you should make the approriate modifications to the code to actually run it.
ToasterBox has been tested on the following platforms:
This class supports the following window styles:
|Window Styles||Hex Value||Description|
|TB_SIMPLE||0x1||A simple ToasterBox, with background image and text customization can be created.|
|TB_ONTIME||0x1||ToasterBox will close after a specified amount of time.|
|TB_COMPLEX||0x2||ToasterBoxes with different degree of complexity can be created. You can add as many controls as you want, provided that you call the AddPanel method and pass to it a dummy frame and a wx.Panel. See the demo for details.|
|TB_ONCLICK||0x2||ToasterBox can be closed by clicking anywhere on the ToasterBox frame.|
|TB_DEFAULT_STYLE||0x2008002||Default window style for ToasterBox, with no caption nor close box.|
|TB_CAPTION||0x22009806||ToasterBox will have a caption, with the possibility to set a title for the ToasterBox frame, and a close box.|
No custom events are available for this class.
ToasterBox is distributed under the wxPython license.
