Are you using Tkinter?

You could bind '<Key>' to nothing in the entry widget.  eg:

self.answer = Tkinter.Entry(master)
def noop(e):
     return 'break'
self.answer.bind('<Key>', noop)

--- actually, scratch that.  For Tkinter, just make the widget disabled.


Just remember that it needs to be enabled when you put the answer in.
