What basically happens is if I use the application all features work fine
except the entry widget I have created. I cannot add text or even get the
cursor to appear in the entry field.
What is odd is I have a askyesno button for quiting. If I hit "no" and
return to the application, I can then enter text and move the cursor with
the tab to other features and buttons in my gui.
How do I get the entry box to work?
The problem might be tied to windows, frames and parents (which I still
don't fully understand even though I have built 5 gui's now). The relevant
code is abridged as below:
if __name__ == '__main__':
root = Tk()
root.title('Artifact Pointer')# adapted from_PyView 1.0')
Label(root, text="Point to Artifacts Observed").pack()
SlideShow(root, picdir=picdir, artdir=artdir, bd=3, relief=SUNKEN)
def __init__(self, parent=root, picdir='.', artdir='.', msecs=3000,
**args):#msecs is legacy
Frame.__init__(self, parent, args)
self.parent = root
and under def makeWidgets I have:
I have tried some variants and have read several forums and Lutz and still
am not getting this sorted out. It is odd to me that it works, but only
AFTER, I hit no under askyesno button.
