Frame not draggable by native OS X toolbar

Reported by: jfn Owned by: csomor
Priority: normal Milestone:
Component: wxPython Version: 2.8.9
Keywords: Cc: daju.wxwidgets@…
Blocked By: Blocking:
Patch: no


After upgrading from wxPython to, my frame is not draggable by its toolbar. It was before. Now it is only draggable by the thin title bar on top, but not the area with the toolbar buttons and labels.

This is on OS X 10.5.6 with a native-style toolbar (e.g. it is created via wx.Frame.CreateToolBar).

Maybe it is related to this bug fix:

yes, I also assume it is related to this fix r57830, I'll have to add some code to avoid sending the event to toplevel if the event is in the structureRegion and no wx control has been hit

I'm having the same problem. You are correct about r57830: the dragging works fine in r57829 but doesn't anymore in the next revision.

I found some strange thing regarding to this issue. I can drag the window using the toolbar just fine if the first line of the code is this:


and only this line works. #!/usr/bin/env python doesn't.

@gianhut: do you have MacPorts installed, with Python and wxPython? In that case #!/usr/bin/env python might result in the MacPorts version being run (depending on your $PATH), while #!/usr/bin/python runs the Apple-supplied version.

I see this is fixed on the 2.9 branch any chance of a backport to 2.8?
