I just had a quick look at the description of VisionEgg, and it  
appears to be far better suited to my needs than easygui is. So,  
Before asking for additional help with easygui, I will first explore  
VisionEgg in greater depth.

Thanks to everyone for responding so promptly to my request for help.
