Tutorial :Problem when using MemoryDC


Why does my code print the lines gray instead of black?

import wx    class MyFrame(wx.Frame):      def __init__(self,*args,**kwargs):          wx.Frame.__init__(self,*args,**kwargs)          self.panel=wx.Panel(self,-1,size=(1000,1000))          self.Bind(wx.EVT_PAINT, self.on_paint)          self.Bind(wx.EVT_SIZE, self.on_size)            self.bitmap=wx.EmptyBitmapRGBA(1000,1000,255,255,255,255)            dc=wx.MemoryDC()          dc.SelectObject(self.bitmap)          dc.SetPen(wx.Pen(wx.NamedColor("black"),10,wx.SOLID))          dc.DrawCircle(0,0,30)          dc.DrawLine(40,40,70,70)          dc.Destroy()            self.Show()        def on_size(self,e=None):          self.Refresh()        def on_paint(self,e=None):          dc=wx.PaintDC(self.panel)          dc.DrawBitmap(self.bitmap,0,0)          dc.Destroy()    if __name__=="__main__":      app=wx.PySimpleApp()      my_frame=MyFrame(parent=None,id=-1)      app.MainLoop()  


Beside the frame/panel paint problem already pointed out the color problem is due to the alpha channel of the 32 bit bitmap.

I remember having read to use wx.GCDC instead of wx.DC.


Ok I tested with newer version of wx(

and Now I wonder why it is even working on your side. you are trying to paint Panel but overriding the paint event of Frame

instead do this

self.panel.Bind(wx.EVT_PAINT, self.on_paint)  

and all will be fine
