Tkinter Text Question

Hello All,

I would like to get the index of the character closest to the pointer in a
Text, something like Canvas.find_clo sest(). I want it to bind to '<Motion>'.
Does anybody know how this might be done?

Thank you,

While setting up some unit tests, I came to the conclusion that a Tkinter Text widget can never be empty, but will always (?) contain a \n. Here is a brief example: >>> import Tkinter >>> t = Tkinter.Text() >>> t.get(0.0, Tkinter.END) '\n' >>> t.delete(0.0, Tkinter.END) >>> t.get(0.0, Tkinter.END)

Hello: Below I have included a stripped down version of the GUI I am working on. It contains 2 dialog boxes - one main and one settings. It has the following problems, probably all related, that I am hoping someone knows what I am doing wrong: 1) Pressing the Settings.. Button multiple times, brings up many instances of the Settings Panel. I just want it to bring up one. Is there an easy way to do that?

I'm trying to decide whether I need threads in my Tkinter application or not. My app is a front end to a command-line tool; it feeds commands to the command-line program, then reads its output and displays it in a Tkinter text widget. Some of the commands are long-running and/or return thousands of lines of output. I initially thought I needed to use threading, because the GUI would block when reading the output, even when I configured...

I hate to do this, but I've thoroughly exhausted google search. Yes, it's that pesky root window and I have tried withdraw to no avail. I'm assuming this is because of the methods I'm using. I guess my question is two-fold. 1) How do I get rid of that window? 2) Any comments in general? I am just learning python (and coding with classes), so I'm sure there are things I should pound into my head before I learn bad habits. Here's the...

The grid manager is for equally distributing widgets both horizontally and vertically. And I'm not sure that you can realize that window look with Tkinter. You could get close by horizontally packing each widget row in a frame and then vertically packing the frames in the window. But the look...

Let's talk about the concept of autonomous AI software engineers and no-code agents. These AIs are designed to manage the entire lifecycle of a software development project—planning, coding, testing, and deployment—without human intervention. Imagine an AI that can take a project description, break it down, write the code, debug it, and then launch it, all on its own.... Now, this would greatly impact the work of software developers.
