Re: Feedback messages to user using Tk

Thanks a lot Morton, I’ll have a look at this widget when I get home ( :

I had tried something similar to what you suggested with a method, but
there was no way of triggering it - i think i needed to perhaps run it
as a seperate process…

Thanks again

I hope not. That will complicate things quite a bit. Before you do
that I would suggest trying the following:

  1. Expose the label by supplying and attribute reader for it in the
    window class OR provide a public method in the window to update the
    label (like btn_action but accepting a string argument).
  2. Provide your file zipper class with code that either directly
    updates the label or calls the update method in the window class.
  3. Don’t call Tk.mainloop in your window class.
  4. Create the window object.
  5. Create the file zipper object, passing the window object in ‘new’.
  6. Now call Tk.mainloop
