First, with posts like this, you're highly unlikely to get any useful 
answer: please strip down your code to the smallest part that displays 
the problem, post this code here, explaining what you're expecting and 
what you're getting. Otherwise, people just won't know what you're 
talking about unless they have a crystal ballŠ

Now using my own crystal ball: if you don't return the control to the 
GUI each time your variable is increased, the GUI won't get a chance to 
update itself. Since you seem to use Tkinter (another wild guessŠ), you 
probably need a call to the update_idletasks method on any Tkinter 
widget each time you change your TextVariable.
