help clearing text

Postby murster972 » Wed Aug 21, 2013 6:42 pm

I've made a basic program, to learn the basics of gui, and need some help.

heres the code
Code: Select all
from Tkinter import *

def txtoutput():
   mtext = storedtxt.get()
   mlabel2 = Label(root, text = mtext).pack()

def about():
   messagebx.showinfo(title = "About", message = "A very basic Program, to learn Gui")

def rb_1():
   rb_value = rb_var.get()
   rb_label = Label(root, text = "You select the option %s" % rb_value).pack()

root = Tk()
storedtxt = StringVar()
rb_var = IntVar()


mlabel = Label(root, text="Enter text and press button to output text...").pack()
mbutton = Button(root, text="Print text", command = txtoutput).pack()
entry = Entry(root, textvariable=storedtxt).pack()
radio_button = Radiobutton(root, text = "Option 1", variable = rb_var, value = 1, command = rb_1).pack()


when the button is pressed it displays the value stored in 'storedtxt' as a label under the entry box, but it dosnt delete after the label stays there, how would i get it to delete the label every time i pressed the button, so that there isnt lots of labels under the entry box??

your creating the label each time in the callback function, thus it is creating a new label every time you push the button.

Here is a simplified version:
Code: Select all
    import tkinter as tk
except ImportError:
    import Tkinter as tk

root = tk.Tk()

e = tk.Entry(root)

s = tk.StringVar()

def callback():

tk.Button(root, text="get", command=callback).pack()
tk.Label(root, textvariable=s).pack()


and check out this regarding your star import
