[Tkinter-discuss] Frame Background

Frames can only have a fixed-color background.
However, it is possible to give a label widget an image, and then use that
label more or less like a frame. This doesn't include the ability to tile the
image. (You could replace the label with a canvas, and create multiple image
objects on the canvas, to achieve this effect---I'll leave this as an exercise)
Here's an example (replace "2313usb.gif" with something you have on your
system, it's just an image I had on hand).
The line 'l.pack_propagate(0)' tells Tk to make the 'l' widget take the
size of its image or label, not the size it would take based on its children.
from Tkinter import *
t = Tk()
p = PhotoImage(file="2313usb.gif")
l = Label(t, image=p)
e = Entry(l, width=20)
e.pack(side=TOP, anchor=W, padx=4, pady=4)
b = Button(l, command=t.destroy, text="Close")
b.pack(side=BOTTOM, expand=Y, anchor=S)
