AFAIK, and Kevin Altis will no doubt correct me if I'm wrong...
def on_button1_mouseClick(self, event):
x = model.ChildWindow(self, child.Child)
x.id_emp = 20
def on_initialize(self, event):
So, from what I understand, the event queue would go like this
User clicks button1, a new event triggers, which runs the method.
That method creates a new event, Child initialize.
But, the initalise event waits in the queue until the
So that method can take all the time in the world to do what it wants,
and Child will
only initialise when it's done.
Which is why you need to thread GUI stuff that's waits a long time for
something to return to avoid 'hanging', because the screen won't
repaint (which is an event) until the prior event triggered method
Make sense? If it doesn't, let me know.
