Re: Tkinter - How to create combo box using Tix with the existingTkinter widgets/

On Mon, Aug 25, 2008 at 12:57 PM, <du**********@g mail.comwrote:

I'm using Tkinter module to create a GUI application. I found that the
combo box is not present in Tkinter module.
It comes with Tix module. Could some one give me an example to create
a combo box whilst using Tix and Tkinter?

I've been using the following to create my tkinter widgets:
myRoot = Tk()

and in my Gui code, I've been using
self.lbAnalysis Lib = Listbox(master, \
yscrollcommand = self.vsbAnalysi sLib.set,\
height = 1,
width = 30)

Please suggest how could I call the Tix's combo box from my existing
GUI application that heavily uses the Tkinter widgets?
Kindly provide me some code examples.

Thanks and regards,
Ok...now I found the way to do that. But I'm stuck further.
my code is as below:
main module
*************** *******
myRoot = Tix.Tk()
myAppGUIObject = myAppGUI(myRoot )

Gui module
*************** *
class myAppGUI:
def __init__(self, master):

self.cbAnalysis Lib = Tix.ComboBox(ma ster, label = "Analysis Library:")
self.cbAnalysis Lib.grid(row = 3, column = 1, padx = 30, pady = 30,
sticky = W)
self.cbAnalysis Lib.config(edit able = 0)

self.cbAnalysis LibVersion = Tix.ComboBox(ma ster, label = "Reference
Analysis Library Version:", \

labelside = 'left')
self.cbAnalysis LibVersion.grid (row = 5, column = 1, padx = 30, pady
= 30, sticky = W)
self.cbAnalysis LibVersion.conf ig(editable = 0)
The problem is that the labelside option is not working. I'm not able
to use even the wraptext option.

I am creating some widgets by inheriting from Tkinter.Frame and populating the frame with whatever the widget will be then creating certain attributes/methods to be accessed later.

See: http://www.wxpython.org/quotes.php. especially: "wxPython is the best and most mature cross-platform GUI toolkit, given a number of constraints.

Howdy all, Python programmers looking for a built-in GUI toolkit are told two things: one, Python already comes with a GUI toolkit, and two, it looks equally ugly on all platforms. This is because the Tk widget library, that Tkinter uses, defaults to looking like Motif, which hasn't been the default widget set of *anything* for a long time. The Tk folks are apparently getting their act together. Tile is a "theming engine" for Tk with...

Hi, I'm in the process of writing some code and noticed a strange problem while doing so. I'm working with PythonWin 210 built for Python 2.5. I noticed the problem for the last py file processed by this script, where the concerned tmp file is only actually written to when PythonWin is closed. In other words, after I run this script, one of the generated tmp files has a size of 0kB. I then close PythonWin and it is then written to.

Everything I've read about Tkinter says you create your window and then call its mainloop() method. But that's not really true. This is enough to launch a default window from the console: Google's great, but it has no truth meter. Do I inherit from Frame? Or is that a big mistake. (Both positions repeated frequently.) Do I use Tk() or toplevel()? (Support for both and if a cogent explanation of the differences exists, I didn't find it.)
