I got a little problem that I hope someone can help me out w/ or
atleast point me in the right direction.
- I have a python program that continuously runs and does some tasks
automatically on a daily basis.
- Now, I want to create a gtk frontend that displays its status and
provides an exit button so I don't need to keep sending the daemon a
What I wanted to do:
- make a class that creates the GUI using libglade and pygtk.
- create the GUI using the outside class and make a function within my
main program that continuously updates the GUI instance when called on.
---------- gtk.main() -------------
The GUI won't show up w/o calling this function. And if I do call this
function, the control of my program will stay in the mainloop until it
exists (GUI closes). This stops the daemon from doing what it normally
So, what do I need to do? Should I have the gtk.main() in its own
thread or something? Or can I somehow extend the gtk.main() so that it
does my program's tasks while keeping an eye on the GUI?
Any help would be appreciated.
