I am trying to draw a rectangle on an image. the image has been set up on a panel.

I have tried using wx.PaintDC, it works on the panel and gets rid of the image. I want to have the rectangle on an image.

import wx

class window (wx.Frame):
    def __init__ (self, parent, id):
        wx.Frame.__init__ (self, parent, id, "Solitair", size = (1200, 800))
        self.add_menubar()
        self.panel = wx.Panel(self)
        img = 'background.jpg'
        bmp = wx.Image(img, wx.BITMAP_TYPE_ANY).ConvertToBitmap()
        self.bitmap = wx.StaticBitmap(self.panel, -1, bmp, (0,0))

        self.bitmap.Bind(wx.EVT_PAINT, self.drowRec)

    def drowRec(self, event):
        dc = wx.PaintDC(self.bitmap)
        dc.SetPen(wx.Pen('green', 5, wx.SOLID))
        dc.SetBrush(wx.Brush('green', wx.TRANSPARENT))
        dc.DrawRectangle(100, 50, 150, 200)

The rectangle supposed to be on an image panel, not on the actual empty panel.

please help. Thanks in advance

Adapting your code and the code at wxPython draw text onto EXISTING bitmap or image

we can quickly knock up:

import wx

class window (wx.Frame):
    def __init__ (self, parent, id):
        wx.Frame.__init__ (self, parent, id, "Solitair", size = (1200, 800))
        self.panel = wx.Panel(self)
        img = 'wxPython.jpg'
        self.bmp = wx.Image(img, wx.BITMAP_TYPE_ANY).ConvertToBitmap()
        self.bitmap = wx.StaticBitmap(self.panel, -1, self.bmp)
        self.drowRec(None)

    def drowRec(self, event):
        dc = wx.MemoryDC(self.bmp)
        dc.SetPen(wx.Pen('green', 5, wx.SOLID))
        dc.SetBrush(wx.Brush('green', wx.TRANSPARENT))
        dc.DrawRectangle(20, 20, 60, 60)
        del dc
        self.bitmap.SetBitmap(self.bmp)

app = wx.App(False)
frame = window(None, -1)
frame.Show()
app.MainLoop()
