this one helps. I have been using static positioning in wxpython for a while now but need to switch to using sizers, but I just can't get the hang of it. Below is a cut down version of my application using static positioning. could someone give me some pointers as to how I go about converting this layout to using sizers please. I will attach a screen grab also: , It's still a bit fiddly, but here it is with BoxSizer's:
code :
import wx

class MainWindow(wx.Frame):
    def __init__(self, parent, id, title):
        wx.Frame.__init__(self, parent, id, title, size=(900, 600) )      


class SubmissionsPanel(wx.Panel):
    def __init__(self, parent):
        wx.Panel.__init__(self, parent)

        #Create some sizers:
        main_sizer = wx.BoxSizer(wx.VERTICAL)
        top_row_sizer = wx.BoxSizer(wx.HORIZONTAL);
        radio_static_box = wx.StaticBox(self, label='') #You have to add this widget to parent BEFORE
                                                        #contained widgets otherwise buttons won't operate.
        radio_static_box_sizer = wx.StaticBoxSizer(radio_static_box, wx.HORIZONTAL)

        job_static_box = wx.StaticBox(self, label='')  #You have to add this widget to parent BEFORE 
                                                       #contained widgets otherwise buttons won't operate.
        job_static_box_sizer = wx.StaticBoxSizer(job_static_box, wx.HORIZONTAL)

        radio_labels = ['Verify Mode', 'Upload Mode']
        self.radio_box = wx.RadioBox(
                self, -1, "", 
        #I couldn't get the radio buttons inside a RadioBox to line up vertically
        #with the checkbox, so I did the following:
        radio1 = wx.RadioButton(self, label='Verify Mode', style=wx.RB_GROUP)
        radio2 = wx.RadioButton(self, label='Upload Mode')
        radio1.Bind(wx.EVT_RADIOBUTTON, self.on_radio_click)
        radio2.Bind(wx.EVT_RADIOBUTTON, self.on_radio_click)

        radio_static_box_sizer.Add(radio1, flag=wx.BOTTOM, border=4) #To make outline line up with the outline of checkbox,txtctrl
        radio_static_box_sizer.Add(radio2, flag=wx.LEFT, border=10)

        top_row_sizer.Add(radio_static_box_sizer, flag=wx.LEFT, border=10)

        #Create Job Title widgets:
        self.check_box = wx.CheckBox(self, label="Job Title")
        self.check_box.Bind(wx.EVT_CHECKBOX, self.ShowOrHideTVTitle)

        self.txtTitle = wx.TextCtrl(self, style=wx.SUNKEN_BORDER, value="Enter job title here...", size=(200, -1))

        job_static_box_sizer.Add(self.check_box, flag=wx.LEFT, border=10)
        job_static_box_sizer.Add(self.txtTitle, flag=wx.RESERVE_SPACE_EVEN_IF_HIDDEN | wx.LEFT, border=10)

        top_row_sizer.Add(job_static_box_sizer, flag=wx.LEFT, border=10);

        main_sizer.Add((-1, 20))  #Add 20 pixels of vertical space

        #Drag n Drop widgets:
        drag_drop_text = wx.StaticText(self, -1, 'Drag n Drop itmsp folder')
        main_sizer.Add(drag_drop_text, flag=wx.LEFT, border=10)
        main_sizer.Add((-1, 3))  #Add 3 pixels of vertical space

        third_row_sizer = wx.BoxSizer(wx.HORIZONTAL);
        self.tc_files = wx.TextCtrl(self, size=(375, 25))
        self.buttonGo = wx.Button(self, label='Submit')
        third_row_sizer.Add(self.tc_files, flag=wx.LEFT, border=10)
        third_row_sizer.Add(self.buttonGo, flag=wx.LEFT, border=10)

        #Create ListCtrl:
        self.index = 0        
        self.log_text22 = wx.ListCtrl(self,size=(800,275),
                         style=wx.LC_REPORT | wx.BORDER_SUNKEN | wx.LC_SINGLE_SEL | wx.LC_VRULES | wx.LC_HRULES)

        list_sizer.Add(self.log_text22, flag=wx.LEFT, border=10)

wxPython: Can a wx.PyControl contain a wx.Sizer?

wxPython: Can a wx.PyControl contain a wx.Sizer?

Hope that helps Yes, it can. You just need to call Layout() to tell the sizer to recalculate/layout its children.
code :
import wx

class Frame(wx.Frame):
  def __init__(self):
    wx.Frame.__init__(self, None)
    blah  = CustomWidget(self)

class CustomWidget(wx.PyControl):
  def __init__(self, parent):
    wx.PyControl.__init__(self, parent=parent)
    text = wx.TextCtrl(parent=self)
    spin = wx.SpinButton(parent=self, style=wx.SP_VERTICAL)
    sizer = wx.GridBagSizer()
    self.layout(text, spin, sizer)
    self.OnInit(text, sizer)

  def OnInit(self, text, sizer):

  def layout(self, text, spin, sizer):
    sizer.Add(text, pos=(0, 0), flag=wx.ALIGN_CENTER)
    sizer.Add(spin, pos=(0, 1), flag=wx.ALIGN_CENTER)

app = wx.App()
f = Frame()
wxPython: How to get sizer from wx.StaticText?

wxPython: How to get sizer from wx.StaticText?

it helps some times If the sizer has children, then GetChildren does return a list of widgets. I've done it many times with wxPython 2.8. I don't remember anyone mentioning it was different in 2.9 or Phoenix, so I'm guessing it's not. Can you tell us which OS and wxPython version you're using?
If you want to know how to get an arbitrary sizer, you might try GetContainingSizer or use the Widget Inspection Tool
code :
import wx

class MyApp(wx.Frame):

    def __init__(self):
        wx.Frame.__init__(self, None, title="Example")
        panel = wx.Panel(self)

        lbl = wx.StaticText(panel, label="I'm a label!")
        txt = wx.TextCtrl(panel, value="blah blah")
        btn = wx.Button(panel, label="Clear")
        btn.Bind(wx.EVT_BUTTON, self.onClear)

        self.sizer = wx.BoxSizer(wx.VERTICAL)
        self.sizer.Add(lbl, 0, wx.ALL, 5)
        self.sizer.Add(txt, 0, wx.ALL, 5)
        self.sizer.Add(btn, 0, wx.ALL, 5)


    def onClear(self, event):
        children = self.sizer.GetChildren()

        for child in children:
            widget = child.GetWindow()
            print widget
            if isinstance(widget, wx.TextCtrl):

if __name__ == "__main__":
    app = wx.App(False)
    frame = MyApp()
wxPython — StaticBox Sizer resizing Static Boxes

This might help you Adding the text widget to 6 different sizers is never a good idea. I recommend creating a new instance of StaticText for each sizer. The reason for the overlap is that you need to increase your vgap when using StaticBoxsizers.
Here's an updated version of the code:
code :
import wx

def createBoxes():
    outVSizer = wx.BoxSizer(wx.VERTICAL)
    outHSizer = wx.BoxSizer(wx.HORIZONTAL)
    sizer = wx.FlexGridSizer(rows=3, cols=3, vgap=55, hgap=20)

    box = {}
    boxSizer = {}
    #text = wx.StaticText(panel, wx.ID_ANY, "This is a test")
    for i in range(6):
        box[i] = wx.StaticBox(panel, wx.ID_ANY, "testBox", size=(0,100))
        text = wx.StaticText(panel, wx.ID_ANY, "This is a test")
        boxSizer[i] = wx.StaticBoxSizer(box[i], wx.VERTICAL)
        boxSizer[i].Add(text, proportion = 1, flag=wx.ALIGN_CENTER)
        sizer.Add(boxSizer[i], flag=wx.EXPAND)

    outHSizer.Add(sizer, flag=wx.EXPAND, proportion=15)
    outVSizer.Add(outHSizer, flag=wx.EXPAND, proportion=15)

app = wx.App()
frame = wx.Frame(None, size=(500,500))
panel = wx.Panel(frame)

Any of those help First of all, you don't give any size to your HUDPanel, so I'm not sure how do you expect it to appear.
Second, you're recursively calling update all the time (well every 15ms), which is most definitely a bad idea as this will consume close to 100% of (one) CPU and may prevent your application from dispatching other events.

this one helps. I just use panels for this sort of thing. You can set the color of the panel several different ways: you can use a named color, a wx.Color object, a predefined wx.Color object like wx.RED or a tuple of 3 integers.
Here's a simple example:
code :
import wx

class MyPanel(wx.Panel):

    def __init__(self, parent):
        wx.Panel.__init__(self, parent)


        main_sizer = wx.BoxSizer(wx.VERTICAL)
        for number in range(5):
            btn = wx.Button(self, label='Button {}'.format(number))
            main_sizer.Add(btn, 0, wx.ALL, 5)


class MyFrame(wx.Frame):

    def __init__(self):
        wx.Frame.__init__(self, None, title='Background colors')
        panel = MyPanel(self)

if __name__ == '__main__':
    app = wx.App(False)
    frame = MyFrame()
