I'm having difficulty structuring a Tkinter menu entry. Here is the
command in question:
self.finkmenu.add_command(label='Update List of Packages',
When I start my program, it crashes because it's trying to run the
command self.authorizeCommand. The reason I'm structuring it in this
fashion is that this command takes another command as an argument--in
this case, self.ScanPackages.
The basic structure of the program is that the self.authorizeCommand
function pops up a dialog box for a password; it then feeds the password
to the function that it takes as an argument, i.e. self.scanPackages.
I tried setting up the menu entry without the additional parameter, i.e.
command=self.authorizeCommand, but then when I try to run the command
from the menu, it complains there are not enough arguments.
Unsurprising, since self.authorizeCommand takes another function name as
How can I structure the menu item to reflect the correct number of
arguments without it trying to execute the command?
