Just getting into Py coding and not understanding why this code doesn't
seem to do anything -

# File: dialog2.py
import dialog_handler

class MyDialog(dialog_handler.Dialog):
    def body(self, master):
        Label(master, text="First:").grid(row=0)
        Label(master, text="Second:").grid(row=1)
        self.e1 = Entry(master)
        self.e2 = Entry(master)
        self.e1.grid(row=0, column=1)
        self.e2.grid(row=1, column=1)
        return self.e1 # initial focus

    def apply(self):
        first = string.atoi(self.e1.get())
        second = string.atoi(self.e2.get())
        print first, second # or something

# File: dialog_handler.py

from Tkinter import *
import os

class Dialog(Toplevel):

    def __init__(self, parent, title = None):
        Toplevel.__init__(self, parent)
        self.transient(parent)

        if title:
            self.title(title)
        self.parent = parent
        self.result = None
        body = Frame(self)
        self.initial_focus = self.body(body)
        body.pack(padx=5, pady=5)
        self.buttonbox()

            # standard buttons

            w = Button(box, text="OK", width=10, command=self.ok,
