Joe, why not:

start() ->
    Panel = wx:new("Hello"),
    Vbox = wxBoxSizer:new(?wxVERTICAL),
    wxWindow:setSizer(Panel, Vbox),
    Button = wxButton:new(Panel, 10, [{label,"Click"}]),
    wxSizer:add(Vbox, Button, [{flag, ?wxALL}]),
    wx:show(Panel).


Where you hide the W and Frame inside the Panel.
They're used only once/twice in your code!!!
