Hi Doug,

This example works fine for python, but unfortunately it's not working in

There is definitely no colliding of variables - this prog does not work when
used as the only code.

I think it must be a PyMOL specific problem. For some reason the .get()
method is unable to get the actual value of the Radiobutton. The strange
thing is that the Label has no problems in displaying the actual value of
tmp. I'm wondering if there's a way to read out 'textvariable' of the

>Label(root, textvariable = tmp).pack(side = LEFT)
