Creating wxPython panel is easy. for creating a new panel, you can use wx.Panel constructor.


Now let me describe above code

parent parent window of the panel.
id ID of the panel. If set to wx.ID_ANY, wxPython will assign a unique ID to the panel automatically.
pos position of the panel within the parent window.
size size of the panel.
style style of the panel. By default, panels use the wx.TAB_TRAVERSAL style, which allows the user to navigate between widgets using the keyboard’s tab key.
name name of the panel.



After that you have created wxPython panel, you can add other widgets to it using the sizer classes provided by wxPython such as wx.BoxSizer or wx.GridSizer.

In this example we have created a class called MyPanel that inherits from wx.Panel. in the __init__ method of the class, we creates  wx.StaticText widget and add it to the panel using  wx.BoxSizer. wx.BoxSizer is set as the sizer of the panel using the SetSizer method.
