In this article we are going to learn about how can we change background colour of a Radio Button. We will use SetBackgroundColour() function sets the background colour of the window. 
Notice that as with SetForegroundColour, setting the background colour of a native control may not affect the entire control and could be not supported at all depending on the control and platform.

Syntax: wx.StaticText.SetBackgroundColour(self, colour)


Parameter Input Type Description
colour wx.Colour Colour for background of static text.

Return type bool
Returns True if the colour was really changed, False if it was already set to this colour and nothing was done. 

Code Example: 


import wx
class Example(wx.Frame):
    def __init__(self, *args, **kwargs):
        super(Example, self).__init__(*args, **kwargs)
    def InitUI(self):
        # create parent panel for radio buttons
        self.pnl = wx.Panel(self)
        # create radio button in frame
        self.rb1 = wx.RadioButton(self.pnl, label ='Btn1',
                           pos =(30, 10), size =(100, 20))
        # set background colour to yellow (r, g, b, a)
        self.rb1.SetBackgroundColour((233, 227, 100, 255))
def main():
    app = wx.App()
    ex = Example(None)
if __name__ == '__main__':
