Example text

Because on Mac OS X all windows have a menubar, it's important to make sure you do define one, either for each window or a fallback menubar for the root window. Otherwise, you'll end up with the "built-in" menubar, which contains menus that are only intended for use when typing commands directly into the interpreter. To actually create a menubar for a window, we first create a menu widget, and then use the window's "menu" configuration option to attach the menu widget to the window. e. use one menubar as the value of the "menu" configuration option for different toplevel windows).

Scrolling works the same way as in listboxes. The "xscrollcommand" and "yscrollcommand" configuration options are available to attach the text widget to horizontal and/or vertical scrollbars, and the "xview" and "yview" methods are available to be called from scrollbars. e. g. 0" for the first (0-based) character of line 5 (1-based). Contents Text widgets do not have a linked variable associated with them, like for example entry widgets do. 0" is an index into the text, and means the first character of the first line, and "end" is a shortcut for the index of the last character, last line.

In case the selected # item is scrolled out of view, make sure it is visible. # # Figure out which country is selected, which gift is selected with the # radiobuttons, "send the gift", and provide feedback that it was sent. grid_rowconfigure(0,weight=1) 48 # Create the different widgets; note the variables that many # of them are bound to, as well as the button callback. itemconfigure(i, background='#f0f0ff') # Set the starting state of the interface, including selecting the # default gift to send, and clearing the messages.
