Today we’re going to take a look at Tkinter! I was curious about how one would go about hiding a frame and then re-showing it using Tkinter and I kept finding threads (like this one) that talked about using withdraw() and deiconify() but didn’t really provide any usable code. In wxPython, I did this sort of thing using pubsub. We’ll go over three different versions of how to hide and show the root frame. (more…)

I recently bought Modern Tkinter for Busy Python Developers by Mark Roseman from Amazon and just finished it yesterday. I think it’s pretty new, but I can’t find the release date for it now. Anyway, let’s get on with the review!
- Why I picked it up: I bought this book because I’d been planning to dig into other Python GUI toolkits anyway and I haven’t seen a new Tkinter book since John Grayson’s Python and Tkinter Programming
- Why I finished it: It has a pretty good writing style, although the widgets chapters started to drag
- I’d give it to: Anyone wanting to make their Tkinter applications look more native or learn a little about Tkinters new theming system.
