    I'm new in this.
    I have made a new app in wxpython using boa v0.61.
    When I try to change any name using the Frame Designer I got the following error:

    12:11:47: Traceback (most recent call last):
    12:11:47:   File "C:\Python26\Lib\site-packages\boa-constructor\Inspector.py", line 823, in OnSelect     self.inspector.propertySelected(self)
    12:11:47:   File "C:\Python26\Lib\site-packages\boa-constructor\Inspector.py", line 1086, in propertySelected     self.prevSel.hideEditor()
    12:11:47:   File "C:\Python26\Lib\site-packages\boa-constructor\Inspector.py", line 803, in hideEditor     self.propEditor.inspectorPost()
    12:11:47:   File "C:\Python26\Lib\site-packages\boa-constructor\PropEdit\PropertyEditors.py", line 158, in inspectorPost     v = self.getValue()
    12:11:47:   File "C:\Python26\Lib\site-packages\boa-constructor\PropEdit\PropertyEditors.py", line 1524, in getValue     if c not in self.identifier:
    12:11:47: UnicodeDecodeError: 'ascii' codec can't decode byte 0x83 in position 52: ordinal not in range(128)

    I'm stock here and I don't know how to continue.
    Thank you in advance for any help.

    It will be a great help to know your wx version:

    >>> from wx import version
    >>> print version() (msw-unicode)

    If you want to use unicode in Boa, you need to use the unicode version of wxPython and set a default encoding for Boa to use.
    (from the error I can see your current default encoding is ascii)

    The easiest way to set a default encoding (e.g. utf-8) in Boa is to run it like this:
    python Boa.py -U utf-8

    I haven't found the problem but the solution is to initiating clicking on Boa.pyc instead of initiating the Boa.py file from Python.
    Thank you for your support.
