tk filesave dialog triggers unexpected destroy event

The following behavior surprised me. I have a Tk window and launch a
file save dialog from it. When the filesave dialog is finished, it
calls callbacks bound to the destroy event on the main window. Is
this expected, and can I avoid this?

To expose the problem, run this script and click the mouse button over
the application window. When the file save dialog is through, the
function "callback" is called, which I did not expect because I bound
this callback to the window destroy event.

Thanks for any advice. Using Tk 1.177


import Tkinter as Tk
from tkFileDialog import asksaveasfilena me

def button(event):
fname = asksaveasfilena me(
title='Save the figure'

window = Tk.Tk()
frame = Tk.Frame(window , width=500,heigh t=500)
frame.bind('<Bu tton-1>', button)
def callback(*args) :
print 'called callback'
window.bind("<D estroy>", callback)

window.mainloop ()

Hello: I just wrote my first ASP.Net application. It worked fine on my machine and when I put into production, the ASP.Net process reaches 50% quite fast and then the system does not work anymore until I kill that process. Obviously, this is not acceptable. Looking back, I do not destroy any objects in my form. Would that be the reasn why the application breaks down?

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?

Overview: Windows 11 and 10 have less user interface control over operating system update behaviour than previous versions of Windows. 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,...
