Tkinter & Tkconstants

I was reading through the Tkinter tutorial at
http://www.pythonware.com/library/tk...tion/index.htm ...and
it mentions that by doing,

from Tkinter import *

you have access to the constants in Tkconstants, since Tkinter imports
it automatically.

However, in the shell if I do..

from Tkinter import *

print Tkinter.HORIZON TAL

I get an error..NameErro r: Tkinter is not defined

any ideas? However, if I do,

import Tkconstants
print Tkconstants.HOR IZTONAL

I get what i expect. but according to the tutorial i should only need

Sure, you ask for Tkinter.HORIZON TAL. But if you directly ask for
HORIZONTAL it should work.
indeed your from statement imported the _content_ of the Tkinter module
in the global namespace not the module in itself.

It's either:
from Tkinter import *

import Tkinter
print Tkinter.HORIZON TAL

or even:
import Tkinter
from Tkinter import *

any ideas? I usually only use:
import OneModule

Or sometimes:
from OneModule import OneClass, OneConstant

But I usually don't import a whole module in my global namespace.

You do.

Hi! I am creating a dialog-box within my application, using tkinter. The problem is the following: After the dialogbox is started, the main application window comes again to top and the dialogbox is covered by the window of the main application and must be "fetched" again via the taskbar to continue. Is there a way to "force" the dialogbox on top of all other windows? (I'm using MSWindows and Python22) The source of my dialogbox-class...

Hi, I just tried to run Tkinter on OS X 10.3.9 under Python 2.4.3, and I'm getting a bus error as soon as I call Tk(). Googling has turned up info other Tkinter bus errors, but not this one that occurs right away, before doing anything fancy. Tk/Tcl is definitely installed on my computer, as verified by running "wish" and seeing the window come up. "info patchlevel" returns 8.4.5. Here's the tail of the output from python -v:
