Tkinter error

Finally started trying to build a simple gui form for inserting text
data into a mysql db of quotations.

I found this nice Tkinter tutorial,

http://www.ibiblio.org/obp/py4fun/gui/tkPhone.html

but midway I'm getting an error.

from Tkinter import *
>>win = Tk()
f = Frame(win)
b1 = Button(f, "One")
Traceback (most recent call last):
File "<stdin>", line 1, in ?
File "/usr/lib/python2.4/lib-tk/Tkinter.py", line 1936, in __init__
Widget.__init__ (self, master, 'button', cnf, kw)
File "/usr/lib/python2.4/lib-tk/Tkinter.py", line 1859, in __init__
BaseWidget._set up(self, master, cnf)
File "/usr/lib/python2.4/lib-tk/Tkinter.py", line 1839, in _setup
if cnf.has_key('na me'):
AttributeError: 'str' object has no attribute 'has_key'

Hmm, there must have been an update to that tutorial after you read it:

"""
>>b1 = Button(win,text ="One")
b2 = Button(win,text ="Two")

The class Button takes the parent window as the first argument. As we will
see later other objects, such as frames, may also act as parents. The rest
of the arguments are passed by keyword and are all optional.
"""

>b1 = Button(win,text ="One")
b2 = Button(win,text ="Two")
That worked. Thank you.

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...

Good Morning. I am new to Tkinter. I have been testing the installation of Tkinter through the python web site. The first two test steps give no errors, 'import _tkinter' and 'import Tkinter'. However, the third step, 'Tkinter._test', gives the error: <function _test at 0xb7ec8df4> Any suggestions?

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:

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...

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. But, it is not getting installed and is failing by throwing the below errors. Should i need to configure / install any specific files for resolving this issue ?

I'm having trouble with tkinter on a new installation of Python (2.6), built with the framework option from source that was downloaded from python.org. I'm running OS 10.4 on a PowerPC G4. The problem first arose when I tried to run matplotlib - it couldn't find tcl/tk because it was searching for 8.5, and I had 8.4. I found and built tcl/tk 8.5, which led to a new error, reproduced below: Traceback (most recent call last): File...
