Tkinter is very good for learning to use a Gui Tool Kit. Because it has a very small number of widgets and the class hierarchy is shallow, learning goes quickly. There is some old documentation here. I used Tkinter for my first database (MySQL) project.

wxPython has a better "look and feel" on windows and has many widgets, but it is not so easy to learn how to use them. I am use wx for my current database project.

I've been approached about writing a Windows app which will need a really professional looking GUI. Forget TKinter, this has to actually look good (real artists will be available to get the visual stuff right). Assuming I write in Python, what's the best toolkit to use? Some cost in implementation pain is tolerable if the finished interface looks better as a result. It would be nice if the toolkit runs on multiple platforms rather than...

I am looking for some input on GUI libraries. I want to build a Python-driven GUI, but don't really understand the playing field very well. I have generally heard good things about wxPython. I happen to already own John Grayson's book about Tkinter programming, so that is rather handy if I decide to use Tkinter. I have done some things slightly more involved than "Hello World" in Tkinter - I have never used wxPython. So, basically the...

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?

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:

Hi, One of my python program needs tkinter to be installed to run successfully. I am using Redhat 9.0 and hence tried installing by copying the tkinter-2.2.2-36.i386.rpm alone from the CD 3 to my pc.

Hi, If you search the newsgroup you'll find loads of similar posts. There is not really an agreement on which GUI library is "the one". Tkinter is a bit limited. Personally, I only have experience with wxpython and like it a lot. But there are others like GTK, FLTK, QT. Cheers,

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,...
