When you created an instance of a wxPython GUI from your Tkinter GUI, you could no longer use the Tkinter GUI controls until you closed the one instance of the wxPython GUI. You can improve on this.
- [Instructor] In the last video, we embedded our GUIs.…In this video, we will explore ways…to control the tkinter in wxPython GUI frameworks…from Python.…We'll use threading…from the tkinter button callback function.…While the code will run smoothly,…we'll encounter an error.…When we try close our GUIs, we'll then see…how to overcome this error.…We have already used the Python threading module…to keep our GUI responsive in the previous section.…
So here, we will attempt to use the same approach.…Things don't always work in a way that would be intuitive.…However, we will improve our tkinter GUI…from being unresponsive while we invoke an instance…of the wxPython GUI from within it.…This video will extend the previous video…in which we tried to embed a main wxPython GUI…into our tkinter GUI.…How to do it?…When we created an instance of a wxPython GUI…from our tkinter GUI, we could no longer use…the tkinter GUI controls until we closed the one instance…of the wxPython GUI.…
Let's improve on this now.…Our first attempt might be to use threading…
