Customizing grid labels

Many owner-drawn controls, such as grid, allow client code to override or customize the look of the control by installing custom renderers. This is possible because the controls are owner drawn in the wx framework and not by the underlying system toolkit. Also, the Grid control itself provides a wide array of options for customization. In this recipe, we will take a look at the GridWithLabelRendererMixin class to discuss a convenient way to customize how row and column labels are rendered in the Grid control.
