Python has a binding to *many* different GUI libraries.  I'd guess you
are asking about Tkinter, but you really ought to tell us that right
up front.  

On top of that, I don't understand what you're trying to accomplish or
what you mean by a "ripple effect".  If you can be much more specific
abour the GUI and problem, I (and probably others) will try to help.
