Hi James,

you might consider to use module FileDialog instead. E.g. for open you would

import FileDialog
def askopenfilename(root):
    return FileDialog.LoadFileDialog(root).go() or ""

... and then replace in method open(self)
        self.filename = tkFileDialog.askopenfilename(self.root)
        self.filename = askopenfilename(self.root)

Hi Ed,

I've got a small request on your new version. It looks great! But, I
can't seem to navigate into any subfolders from the open/save menus.
The dialog seems to have the same trouble a lot of other programs have
on my iPAQ 2215, by default they don't allow too many subfolders to be
listed. Additionally, the "All Folders" setting doesn't show ALL the
py files, just the few that are in the same folder as IdleCE.

Is there any way you could put in some kind of more conventional file
browser, with a file tree and up-folder button?

Is anyone else having this problem?
