Okay, so I am new to Tkinter, and can't figure out how to get the text out of
my Entry() text box. I know I can make a button or something like that where
they click it and I get it. But what I want to do is have the user typing in
the box, and then they hit "return" or "enter" and that also gets it for


e = Entry(root, width=25)

Button1 = Button(root, command=get)

def get():
    print e.get()


Something like that, only I want to eliminate the button, and make it to
where the user hits enter in the text box and it does the get() function.
