Hi Everyone,

I'm learning pyGtk and am developing my first application. I'm trying to
check if a GtkEntry is empty and I'm using the following code:

if txtSearch.get_text() == "":
    print "The entry is empty"

This didn't work. So I thought, maybe I need to reference self and tried:

if self.txtSearch.get_text() == "":
    print "The entry is empty"

Neither worked. What am I doing wrong?
