Subclassing Window

A useful pattern in pyglet is to subclass Window for each type of window you will display, or as your main application class. There are several benefits:

The following example shows the same "Hello World" application as presented in Writing a pyglet application, using a subclass of Window:

class HelloWorldWindow(pyglet.window.Window):
    def __init__(self):
        super(HelloWorldWindow, self).__init__()

        self.label = pyglet.text.Label('Hello, world!')

    def on_draw(self):

if __name__ == '__main__':
    window = HelloWorldWindow()
