What GUI toolkit are you using?

Whatever it is, there ought to be a simple method on the Entry widget
that inserts a character. Poke around with it and you'll probably find
it, though you may find it under a name you don't expect. (Happens a
lot. GTK calls something "sensitive" when the rest of the world calls
it "enabled".)
