Tkinter and Persistent GUI

Hey everyone,

I have a decent amount of experience programming in Python and using Tkinter to this point including the usage of many different widgets and events. I have the need to create a GUI now with a persistent environment (as in it looks like a regular windows program with the x, box, and _ in the upper right hand corner. I then will have to create a file drop down menu and so on.

My question is are there any examples so I do not have to reinvent the wheel so to speak? I have looked around online but have been unsuccessful. If not I guess I will start out with the top level frame and work from there.

Thanks,
JP

I've built a complete app in Tkinter. That was some time ago. I could post some of that work, but I'd like a clearer picture of what you are looking for. (By the way, I don't recommend using Tkinter for full apps because there are so many missing widgets - combo box, for example - and so little support.)

So, what do you mean by "persistent environment"? Do you need to use the Windows registry?, etc?
