Re: Problem with a for loop and a list

P: n/a

Actually I tried that and had no sucsess, but I just figured it out. I set
every value in wordList to 'None' and so even if all the entry fields aren't
taken up, they go to '', so I can tell what is and what isn't taken up, and
get the string of the ones that are taken up.

And what does self.wordList begin as? If {}, then the assignemt is
invalid. Perhaps you want self.wordList.append(entry.get())

Is this supposed to be incremented once per entry or once per
getWords()? If the former, you would overwrite previous assignment (if
it worked) for every item except the last.
