In the previous videos, you found ways to connect a wxPython GUI with a Tkinter GUI, invoking one from the other and vice versa. While both GUIs were successfully running at the same time, they did not really communicate with each other. Learn how to make
- [Narrator] In the previous video we saw how to control…two different GUI frameworks.…In this video we will explore ways to make the two GUIs…talk to each other.…We will connect them by making one GUI launch, another,…and via a simple multiprocessing Python Q mechanism…we will be able to make them communicate…with each other writing data…from a shared cue into both GUIs.…Watching one of the previous videos…might be a good preparation for this video.…
In this video we will use a slightly modified GUI code…compared to the previous video,…but most of the basic GUI building code is the same.…How to do it?…In the previous videos one of your main challenges…was how to combine two GUI technologies that were designed…to be the one and only GUI toolkit for an application.…We found various simple ways to combine them.…We will again launch the WX Python GUI…from a Tkinter GUI main event loop…and start the WX Python GUI in it's own thread…that runs within the Tkinter process.…
In order to do this…we will use a shared global multiprocessing Python cue.…
