Hi All,

1. I'd like to be able to put an icon on the titlebar. I read about using iconwindow together
with a Label, but how? My code:

from Tkinter import *
import Image,ImageTk

im=ImageTk.PhotoImage(Image.open("mcut16.png")) # a 16x16 image

yields the following error:

Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "<stdin>", line 1, in ?
  File "/usr/local/lib/python2.4/lib-tk/Tkinter.py", line 1473, in wm_iconwindow
    return self.tk.call('wm', 'iconwindow', self._w, pathName)
_tkinter.TclError: can't use .-1211821748 as icon window: not at top level

How should I do it?

2. I'd like to be able to set the colour of the window decoration. I'd like to distinguish
between similar windows based on their title (and, if possible, border) colour. Can I
accomplish that?

3. Where can I find a detailed documentation about what arguments go in the wm_ family
of  Toplevel methods (meaning, format)?
