I'm having a problem on windows (both 2000 and XP) with a multi-threaded tkinter gui application.

The following simple example code illustrates the problem and the work around I've come up with; However, I'd like, very much, to get rid of the kludgy work around....

When I call the function using a pointer to the derived class (ClassB* b; b->func(); ) the base-class function is called instead of the new function in the derived class. All other similar functions (virtual in the base class and overwritten in the the derived class) work fine, it's just this one function. ...

similar to: http://overtons.com/lettering/lettering.html I was thinking of writing it myself in either vb6 as an activex dll server component, or vb.net - it does seem more feasable to me in vb .net, but it would also be great if this was already done. Any information appreciated. Scott Emick semick@ham.phoenix-sys.com
