Linking wxGrid to SQLite database in Python - an example
Here's how I linked a wx.Grid widget to an underlying SQLite grid. Note that this didn't need me to override the GridTableBase which might be needed for more advanced purposes. What this demonstration will do is produce a small window and open (if it doesn'...
