Tkinter: scrollbar in grid-managed frame

Tkinter "frame"s don't scroll.  Instead, you need to use something like
bwidget's "ScrollableFrame" widget.  You may want to combine this with
bwidget's "ScrolledWindow".

Below is an example which uses my "pybwidget" package, available at
	http://tkinter.unpy.net/bwidget/
# ----------------------------------------------------------------------
import Tkinter, bwidget
 
t = Tkinter.Tk()
s = bwidget.ScrolledWindow(t, auto="vertical", scrollbar="vertical")
f = bwidget.ScrollableFrame(s, constrainedwidth=True)
g = f.getframe()

for i in range(20):
    Tkinter.Label(g, text="Field %d:  " % i).grid(row=i, column=0, sticky="w")
    Tkinter.Entry(g, width=25).grid(row=i, column=1, sticky="ew") 
g.grid_columnconfigure(1, weight=1)

s.setwidget(f)
s.pack(fill="both", expand=1)
t.mainloop()
