PyGTK, libglade, and signal_autoconn ect

I was having a real hard time trying to accomplish something. I
couldn't find a way to automatically connect the "close" button
(clicked signal) of a GUI app I was working on, to the gtk.main_quit()
function. I had entered this handler directly with the GLADE-3
designer (I DON'T WANT TO USE A DICTIONARY, because I think that,
using GLADE, I should be able to shortcut that procedure) but in my
class the

self.wtree.sign al_autoconnect( self)

wasn't working. Of course, I thought, it's looking for gtk.main_quit()
which is obviously somewhere else. So, the only solution I could think
of was to add:

self.wtree.sign al_autoconnect( gtk) --- having already imported gtk,

This automagically worked.

What I would like to know is if this is legitimate, and the right way
to go. It is basically a solution I cooked up instinctively, which
happened to work, but perhaps I am unaware of some other more
"orthodox" way of doing it.

Thank you.

Hi everyone, I got a little problem that I hope someone can help me out w/ or atleast point me in the right direction. Situation: - I have a python program that continuously runs and does some tasks automatically on a daily basis. - Now, I want to create a gtk frontend that displays its status and provides an exit button so I don't need to keep sending the daemon a kill signal.

In July there was a thread about problems on Red Hat 9 with PyGTK not playing nice with Glade. I was tinkering with this a little bit tonight, starting with the code I found in this article: http://www.linuxjournal.com/article.php?sid=6586 Based on what was written, I tried this and had no joy: ###################################### import gtk import gtk.glade class BadGui:

Hi Pythoneers, Im interested in trying some gui programming with the GTK2 toolkit. I found this brief article,(http://www.linuxjournal.com/article.php?sid=6586), that speaks about utilising 'Glade' to help build these gui. I downloaded the pyGTK tarball from http://www.daa.com.au/~james/software/pygtk/ i do the usual ./configure, make, makeinstall.

Hi all. Here is a tiny container for one of each combo box, along with the glade file. Just 2 widgets, so hopefully not too large. How the heck do I get the selection from the ComboBox, as opposed to the ComboEntryBox? I'm pulling my hair out over this one! jonathon

As a newby to PyGTK I already have produced some gui's I like, but I have difficulties in finding out what method or other instrument I need for doing various things.

Did anybody managed to "pack", a program that uses pygtk with pyexe? The best result I got was: Pango-ERROR **: file shape.c: line 75 (pango_shape): assertion faled: (glyphs->num_glyphs > 0) aborting... I'm using python2.4, pygtk-2.6.1-1.win32-py2.4, gtk-win32-2.6.4-rc1. Thanks in advance.

I am experimenting (flailing around?) with glade and python. Both under MS Windows and Linux. I understand why I want to "import gtk" It gives me access to the critical gui program loop gtk.main() and main_quit() I am also very grateful for import gtk.glade This lets me open my xml format glade file

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,...

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. The idea...
