Lbc wraps the wxDialog rather than the wxFrame class. I was also surprised to discover that wxDialog does not support a status bar natively, so Lbc creates one with a label control. The SetStatus instance method of a dialog may be used to set the text of its status bar (pass a single parameter consisting of the string of text to be displayed).
In the future, I would like to wrap the wxFrame class as well. Initially, wxDialog was significantly easier because it does not require a wxPanel control layer between the parent window and the child controls.

While definitely quite happy with using layoutByCode in python to render most general controls on a dialogue, etc., I specifically want to be able to manually set the status bar text/content, and to be able to add a menu to the dialogue/window as well, and the wx.Frame object has the necessary methods/functionality, and I would have assumed that the pretty standard LBC dlg object would effectively be a wx.Frame object, but doesn't seem to want to let me make use of it as such, etc. That is when I try something like the following: myFrame = wx.Frame(dlg) #but anyway Any thoughts, off hand, on how to gain access to the window's frame object, or have I missed finding some LBC specific functionality/methods for assigning menu bars and status bar text?
