the code in :
self.name_of1 = wx.TextCtrl(panel, -1,self.staff1,pos=(30,30),size=(500,500),style = wx.TE_MULTILINE)
should look something like:
self.name_of1 = wx.TextCtrl(panel, -1," ".join(self.staff1),pos=(30,30),size=(500,500),style = wx.TE_MULTILINE)
the reason is that self.staff1 is a list but it should be a string when you're trying to use it in the wx.TextCtrl.
Hope that makes sense
