[Tkinter-discuss] String-names and the NoteBook entryfield

Hello everyone.  I have an issue that is causing me many anxious moments.  So, at long last, I feel I need to refer to the experts.

I am trying to create a Pmw.NoteBook instance that the user names as he/she creates it.  Specifically, I am trying to enable the user to name the NoteBook instance in its own entryfield, similar to creating a new Tree node in Windows Explorer or a new Windows folder or shortcut icon, for example.  Secondly, I am having a hard time associating the input string name with the NoteBook instance.  Unfortunately, I have gone through many cycles trying to make things work, and the code has broken each time, so I have included just the base code that (almost) works.  Any ideas on this one?

Thanking you in advance,

Christopher Nethery
