Your code lacks a call to the method which starts the event loop, that
is
Gtk.main. Adding it to the end of your program should make it work.

You may not be aware of the fact that closing the dialog (either
clicking the
button or using the close button on the dialog’s frame) doesn’t quit
your
application, as it is now. To do so, you should connect the dialog
destroy
signal with the method Gtk.main_quit: in the method quick_message, add
the
code

dialog.signal_connect(‘destroy’){Gtk.main_quit}

at any point after the creation of the dialog and it should work.

I hope this helps

Stefano

yes i got it…

thank you Stefano
