EasyDialogs module problem with python 2.4.1

First my setup:

I'm using the framework build of Python 2.4.1

( http://bob.pythonmac.org/archives/20...241-installer/ )

on an ibook G4 running Mac OS 10.3.8.

I installed wxPython 2.5.5.1 ( Unicode runtime 2.5.5.1 for the Panther
version of Macpython-OSX 2.4 )

( http://wxpython.org )

Now my problem:

EasyDialogs module

( http://www.python.org/doc/2.4.1/mac/...syDialogs.html )

works with pyshell (interactive python program included with wxPython)
but not with python launched at the terminal:
ie:

Could you be more precise what "works not" means? What do you expect
to happen, what happens instead?

Did you try pythonw?

Sorry, the rest of the message:

At the terminal, EasyDialogs doesn't work:

I want to use EasyDialogs as a user front end for some simple scripts
and can't do that until this issue is resolved. Thanks in advance.

Try pythonw.

Thanks, that was it.

One more question, when I use the EasyDialogs module to, for example,
display a message in a dialog box, the dialog box doesn't appear directly.
I need to switch to 'python' by clicking on it on the dock or
alt-tabbing to 'python' in order to see the dialog box.

------------------

scott$ pythonw
Python 2.4.1 (#2, Mar 31 2005, 00:05:10)

Type "help", "copyright", "credits" or "license" for more information.
import EasyDialogs
EasyDialogs.Message('hi')


(At this point the 'python' icon appears on the dock and starts jumping.
The actual dialog box won't appear until I manually switch to python
with alt-tab.)

-------------------

This again is in contrast to using Pyshell, where the dialog box
automagically appears without further user input upon entry of
EasyDialogs.Message('hi').

Question:
Can I get this Pyshell behavior using python from the terminal?

One application is "active" at any point in time, and this application
controls the menu, has its windows displayed, and so on. So when the
Terminal.app is active, Python cannot be.

Now, it may be possible to programmatically change the active
application, but I don't know how.
