Happy Holidays

26 December 2018

Well, it’s that time of year where things start to get crazier than normal. Rushing around, trying to come up with holiday recipes, making sure that the apartment is clean just in case someone drops by, coming up with ideas for presents for friends and family members while staying within my budget ($0 USD) and so on. In the meantime, I try to keep busy writing for Full Circle Magazine (more on this in a moment), trying to continue working on my Page book, helping out my son, and trying to live with my spinal injuries. Officially, I am retired,...

The Checkbutton Conundrum

19 June 2018

Recently, I wanted to have an Tkinter entry widget change from a disabled state, where no editing is allowed, to a normal state that allows for editing. At first thought, that seems very simple. A Checkbutton widget can be used to toggle the Entry widget from state=tk.DISABLED to state=tk.NORMAL. However, that isn’t quite the case. I’ll get into that in a moment.

Separators in a Page Form

04 June 2018

Years ago, when I programmed in Visual Basic, I found that I occasionally needed some separators, just a series of 2 pixel lines, to break up the information on the form. I didn’t need a full frame to do this. I started off using a 2 pixel light line, but visually that wasn’t pleasing enough. Then one day I was fooling around and found that if I used a frame the width that I wanted, but only set the height at 2, that I had something that looked like it was done using a control (what we called widgets back...

Greg's first blog musings

26 May 2018

Well, here I go. This is my first blog post anywhere. I think that I have to look at this as something like a very short article, similar to what I write for Full Circle Magazine on a (mostly) monthly basis, just with less structure and can be on anything. Well, my articles for FCM can be on pretty much anything, but I usually keep them somewhat focused on Python. Mostly.
