General help with hide show status bar for a begineer in python
#1
Hi guys!
I have the following code, everything is working, except that I can't get the function for hiding the tool bar to work. Originally I was using a different approach from a tutorial, it was working, but now that I added new things and changed some old, I get a problem.
error: AttributeError: 'Example' object has no attribute 'toolbar'
I tried changing the function "toolbar.Hide()" with "toolbar = toolbar.Hide()" and "toolbar = Hide()" and a few other things, but it does not work. Can someone explain to me the difference between the 2 approaches and how to fix the problem?

Also a good python function reference would be good.

Thanks in advance!

Important part of the code, new appraoch:
                                            #Toolbar block.
        toolbar = self.CreateToolBar()#Visual creation of the toolbar.
        QuitTool = toolbar.AddTool(wx.ID_ANY, 'Exit', wx.Bitmap('exit.png'))#Adding picture to the toolbar button.
        OpenTool = toolbar.AddTool(wx.ID_ANY, 'Open', wx.Bitmap('o.png'))#Adding picture to the toolbar button.
        toolbar.Realize()

        self.Bind(wx.EVT_TOOL, self.OnQuit, QuitTool)#Adding operation to the toolbar button.
        self.Bind(wx.EVT_TOOL, self.OnQuit, OpenTool)#Adding operation to the toolbar button.
        ..........................
        def ToggleToolBar(self, e):#Function for the menu function block. Different toolbar. For ticking on/of the toolbar.
        if self.shtl.IsChecked():
            toolbar.Show()
        else:
            toolbar.Hide()       
Important part of the code old approach.
        self.toolbar = self.CreateToolBar()#Visual creation of the toolbar.
        self.toolbar.AddTool(1, '', wx.Bitmap('exit.png'))#Adding picture to the toolbar button.
        self.toolbar.Realize()#Adding operation to the toolbar button.
        .........................
        def ToggleToolBar(self, e):#Function for the menu function block.
        if self.shtl.IsChecked():
            self.toolbar.Show()
        else:
