Wx mayavi embed in notebook exampleΒΆ

This example show how to embedded Mayavi in a wx notebook.

This is a slightly more complex example than the wx_embedding example ( Wx embedding example), and can be used to see how a large wx application can use different Mayavi views.

In this example, we embed one single Mayavi scene in a Wx notebook, with 2 tabs, each one of them hosting a different view of the scene.

Python source code: wx_mayavi_embed_in_notebook.py
