[Tkinter-discuss] First Tkinter program

I am just starting out with Python, in hopes of getting my head around
OO programming. I am running into trouble figuring out how to structure
a GUI front-end for a simple program. Here's the general visual
Listbox populated by a list
Some number of textentry and textarea pairs (five? or from a list?)
Button one - says "Next" and it stores the contents of the textentry and
textarea pairs (in a dictionary tied to the list entry seems natural), and
then clears the interface to allow more entries
Button two - "Done" - stores the contents of the textentry and textarea
pairs and then closes the window.
That's really it - very simple, but too much for me - I haven't even
written a list box test that actually works - I do not understand OO
well enough to make sense of examples (I don't really get what a
constructor does, or understand the interactions of classes and
instances of TKinter objects).
The underlying functionality is easy - I can write it to use the command
line or text files no problem - but the interface i giving me fits. Any
pointers would be welcome. Thanks.
