How to debug Python program with GUI (Tkinter)?

Hi all,

How to debug Python program with GUI, especially Tkinter? My debug
environment is PythonWin.

For example, when I single step in the program, the step will go to
mainloop() and always loop there. How can I know where the program is
processed?

Any suggestions are welcome!
Best regards,
Davy

You can't - the mainloop is written in C. You need to set breakpoints in the
command-handlers of your interest.

Try Winpdb
http://www.digitalpeers.com/pythondebugger/

With Winpdb you can pause (break into) and inspect the state of the
Python script even if it is doing some C code.
