ok Im choosing from the list box supplies used.... gotta have the ability to choose multiple selections... I want to put them in a list, but I keep getting and error... its important to put this in a list because when I'm done I need to clear the list for the next entry.... you can see in the code that ive tried to get it in a list ... but I cant get it to work... then once its in the list i set up if/ elseif statements.... if the value retured = '1' then.... but the program wont recognize  the number... why not and what should I do to fix this... last question is the way I am doing this the best way to go about this ?


self.sampleList =['gauze pads', '2" medical tape','1" medical tape','cravats'   
        self.listbox = wx.ListBox(panel,-1,(700,30), choices=self.sampleList,
                style=wx.LB_EXTENDED)
        self.listbox.Bind(wx.EVT_LISTBOX, self.listboxClick)
    def listboxClick(self,event):
    # for multiple and single item select use this ...
        supplies = self.listbox.GetSelections()
        selected_list = []
        print supplies
        
        
        for sup in supplies
            selected_list.append(self.selected_list[pos])
        s = str(self.selected_list)
        print s
        #self.text_out.ChangeValue(s)
        
        if supplies =='1':
                print 'Medical Tape -1'
                self.new_supply = -1
        else:
                pass
        
        
   def getinventory(self,event):
        con = lite.connect('supplies.sqlite')
        cur = con.cursor()
        cur.execute("select * from  inventory())
        rows = cur.fetchone()
        self.standing_inv = rows[0]
        self.ln = rows[1]
        self.fn = rows[2]
        cur.close()               
        con.close()
    
    def updateinventory(self,event): 
        con = lite.connect('supplies.sqlite')
        cur = con.cursor(
        new_inventory = self.standing_inv - self.new_supply
        medical_tape = self.new_inventory
            
            cur.execute('update inventory set medical_tape=? , gauze=?,
                        ( medica;_tape, gauze))
                         
            con.commit()
            cur.close()
            con.close()

Its rather dangerous converting list to string using str(). Maybe instead of doing this:
        supplies = self.listbox.GetSelections()
        selected_list = []
        print supplies
        
        
        for sup in supplies
            selected_list.append(self.selected_list[pos])
        s = str(self.selected_list)
        print s
        #self.text_out.ChangeValue(s)
        
        if supplies =='1':
                print 'Medical Tape -1'
                self.new_supply = -1
        else:
                pass

Open in new window

Do this:
        supplies = self.listbox.GetSelections()
        for sup in supplies:
            if str(sup) == '1':
                print 'Medical Tape -1'
                self.new_supply = -1
            else:
                pass

Open in new window

The reason is that when you do a str() on a list, the [] and the spaces and commas are retained and you have to check for them too (which isn't a good idea)
Let me know if that works
