vtkRenderer and vtkRenderWindow have different size when inside wxVTKRenderWindowInteractor

Hi, I was doing some testing with VTK and WXPython in a MacBook Air M1. I’m using VTK 9.1.0 and WXPython 4.1.1. One thing that I noticed is vtkRenderer and vtkRenderWindow when inside a wxVTKRenderWindowInteractor have the size doubled of wxVTKRenderWindowInteractor. I’m using this Python script as test, when you move the mouse it’ll print the size of vtkRenderer, vtkRenderWindow and wxVTKRenderWindowInteractor, something like:

iren: (400, 372), rwin: (800, 744), ren: (800, 744)

You can see that RenderWindow have its size two times greater than RenderWindowInteractor. Is that expected? Or is it a bug? Then I use vtkRenderWindowInteractor this doesn’t happen. Thanks!

The script:

from vtkmodules.vtkFiltersSources import vtkConeSource
from vtkmodules.vtkRenderingCore import vtkActor, vtkPolyDataMapper, vtkRenderer
from vtk.wx.wxVTKRenderWindowInteractor import wxVTKRenderWindowInteractor
import wx

def onMouseMove(obj, evt):
    iren = obj
    rwin = obj.GetRenderWindow()
    ren = rwin.GetRenderers().GetFirstRenderer()
    print(f"iren: {iren.GetSize()}, rwin: {rwin.GetSize()}, ren: {ren.GetSize()}")

# every wx app needs an app
app = wx.App(False)

# create the top-level frame, sizer and wxVTKRWI
frame = wx.Frame(None, -1, "wxVTKRenderWindowInteractor", size=(400,400))
widget = wxVTKRenderWindowInteractor(frame, -1)
sizer = wx.BoxSizer(wx.VERTICAL)
sizer.Add(widget, 1, wx.EXPAND)

# It would be more correct (API-wise) to call widget.Initialize() and
# widget.Start() here, but Initialize() calls RenderWindow.Render().
# That Render() call will get through before we can setup the
# RenderWindow() to render via the wxWidgets-created context; this
# causes flashing on some platforms and downright breaks things on
# other platforms.  Instead, we call widget.Enable().  This means
# that the RWI::Initialized ivar is not set, but in THIS SPECIFIC CASE,
# that doesn't matter.

widget.AddObserver("ExitEvent", lambda o,e,f=frame: f.Close())
widget.AddObserver("MouseMoveEvent", onMouseMove)

ren = vtkRenderer()

cone = vtkConeSource()

coneMapper = vtkPolyDataMapper()

coneActor = vtkActor()
