Embedding a Tkinter widget inside a PyGtk HMI


I am trying to embed a Tkinter widget (TkZinc, http://www.tkzinc.org)
inside a PyGtk HMI.

A guru gave me this advice: "I think you can do some magic using the XID
of the Tkinter widget's window to produce a GdkWindow"

I wrote this little program, which gets the XID of the Tkinter window
and uses it to create a gtk.gdk.Window.
However, I was unable to find any example of embedding a gtk.gdk.Window
inside a classik gtk.Window. I can't believe it has never been done
before and I was astonished to see the low number of results when typing
"gtk.gdk.window _foreign_new" in Google.

Is this the correct way to do this? Should I use Plugs and Sockets,
instead (the documentation is not clear about this and I will update it
if I find new things)?

Any hint would be appreciated!

main.connect("d estroy", gtk.main_quit)
foreign = gtk.gdk.window_ foreign_new(lon g(xid_))

t = Tkinter.Tk()
Tkinter.Label(t , text='Tk Label').pack()

Hi everybody, I'm using QuickTimeTcl (3.1) to be able to play movie files in my Tkinter application (Python 2.3.2) on Windows 2000. I was planning to write a simple wrapper class, QuickTimeMovie, that would wrap up the QuickTimeTcl Tcl extension as a Python class. All seems to work pretty fine until the Tkinter application is closed, when the Python interpreter crashes with an error of the following kind: The instruction at...

Hi, I have a small Tkinter app that gets data from a socket connection to a "server". The app has a Text() widget to display the info that it gets from the socket connection. I have the ability to stop the text at any point. What I want to be able todo is select a line from the Text() window and double click or whatever on it to open a new window with that selected text as a paramater to the new window.

Hello, I happen to use in my programs a widget based on Tkinter Canvas. It is Zinc (http://www.tkzinc.org), which allows to draw using transparency, gradients, translations, rotations, ... using OpenGL. However, this widget depends on Tkinter, whose look I find oldy, though I would like to try PyGtk or wxPython. I would like to know if there is a method for using a Tkinter widget

I'm building an application involving both twisted and Tkinter. Since twisted co-opts <widget>.mainloop() in its reactor.run(), and since it behaves very badly if the application quits without reactor.stop() running, I attach the following function to '<Destroy>' in the main window (root = Tk()): def stop_reactor_bind(x): reactor.stop() Then:

I am looking for a way to force a Tkinter window into focus on a system level. I know the force focus method should bring one window of my application into focus, but it seems I need to have some part of my application already in focus on a system level to make this work. If for example I am entering text at the command line and call a force_focus on my root window the call will not return till I click on a window in my application. The...

Hey guys. I am having trouble understanding the get() method from The arguments to the get method of the Text widget are strings in the form of "line.position". So, text.get('1.5', '2.7') returns the text from line 1 position 5 to line 2 position 7. There are also some special tagged names such as END and SEL.

In Windows 11 and 10, there is no way to turn off the Windows Update option using the Control Panel or Settings app; it automatically checks for updates and installs any it finds, whether you like it or not. For most users, this new feature is actually very convenient. If you want to control the update process,...
