Hi Ilknur,

usually Tk man pages are quite straightforward to "translate" into Python.
The standard and widget-specific options in Tk begin with "-" (like -height),
in Python you can pass them to the widget constructor or to configure(), like
widget.configure(height=20). The WIDGET COMMAND section describes the
available commands for the widget, in case of the ProgressBar there is only
cget() and configure().

So an (untested) example according to the man page might look like:

from Tkinter import *
import bwidget

root = Tk()
var = IntVar()
p = bwidget.ProgressBar(root, height=20, width=200, maximum=100, variable=var, type='normal')

def run_test():
    if var.get() < 100:
        var.set(var.get() + 1)
        root.after(50, run_test)


I hope this helps
