Hi Chris,

Have you looked into using a Frame to hold you input fields, and then 
using .destroy() to remove it upon successful login?

This would allow you to not have to worry about hiding windows, as you 
can just reuse the same root window.

Im just a hobbyist, so if there are reasons not to use this approach, 
I'd be interested in why.
