When you say "Does the trick", do you mean my code gives you centred text? Aaagh!

Quite so; but I did try the wxALIGN_CENTRE flag on the sizer's Add method, without any obvious difference. And in any case the plan was that the wxALIGN_CENTRE flag on the StaticText box itself was going to do the alignment.
Thinking about what you said, I wonder if the StaticText box is actually only the size of the text, so that centring the text within it has no effect.
