Thanks @marklundeberg this looks good to me. For anybody else who wants to know about this, you can find the KeyEvent docs here: http://wxpython.org/docs/api/wx.KeyEvent-class.html

Ah. Turns out that this file was removed from the examples just a couple of days ago: #1756 - so this PR is no longer applicable. Even so, thanks for submitting @marklundeberg - I'll now close this PR.

@marklundeberg: Did the printing_in_wx.py work for you (once making this change)? It was reportedly not working at all, which is why it was removed. But if we have reports of it working, or ways in which it could be made to work, it might be nice to reinstate it.

@mdboom: Yeah, printing doesn't work for me either. I get the same bug as mentioned in #1756.

The main thing was that I was trying to figure out how to copy to clipboard, and my bug fix made that work alright.

Ok -- so ideally it would be nice to have a new example showing how to copy to the clipboard with wx (which we know works) and just skip all the other printing stuff.

Yes -- the application I had in mind is actually to add a button to the plot toolbar that takes a screenshot. Perhaps that would be the perfect example (once I figure it out!).

I'm hoping to perform data analysis using python and it's nice to be able to copypaste figures into a Powerpoint file, as a notebook, without having to go through the trouble of first saving the image to a file.

Great. Well, in the interest of keeping the issue tracker uncluttered, let's leave this closed, and if you would like to submit a clipboard example later -- which we'd be glad to have -- just open a new PR. Thanks.
