[PythonCE] tkinter for dell axim x30

Hi David,

Thanks for your response.

I'm pretty of a python newbie, have little time for programming, and also must confess that I'm not sure exactly what you are talking about.  I have no experience with Cython and no ambition to create any kind of extensions or wrapper for anything.  I'd prefer to leave that up to someone else.

But thank you for suggestion.  The original question still stands, which is basically whether or not tkinter works with Windows 2003 Mobile Edition or if no, whether it can easily be made to work with it.

I'm not really leaning toward using C and the SDK.  I'd much rather do it in Python but I need buttons to gather data for the application.  I suppose I could use a text interface if need be but I want input to require no more effort or time than selecting and pushing a button.

If you're looking in that direction, perhaps it would be easier to use
Cython to build some wrappers to access the Windows ME SDK via Python.
That would give you the best of both worlds - python and a windowing
system that Just Works.
