You should probably be a little bit more specific, and maybe include
some of the code around where you are having the problem.

That said, if this is Tkinter, maybe something here will help:


      self.wout = Tkinter.Tk()
      self.frame = Tkinter.Frame(self.wout, bg='brown')


      self.frame.sc = Tkinter.Scrollbar(self.frame, orient=Tkinter.VERTICAL)

      self.frame.tout = Tkinter.Text(self.frame, yscroll=self.frame.sc.set,
					 bg='black', fg='white')

      self.frame.sc['command'] = self.frame.tout.yview
      self.frame.sc.pack(side='right', fill='y')


         t = self.c.read_eager().replace('\r','')

         if t:
            self.w.frame.tout.config(state='normal')
            self.w.frame.tout.insert(Tkinter.END, t)
            self.w.frame.tout.config(state='disabled')
            self.w.frame.tout.yview(Tkinter.END)   




This is just bits and pieces of a file I wrote a couple of years ago... 
I remember having trouble with the same thing.  Hope this helps.
