from Tkinter import *
import Tkinter
import time
import thread


canvas =Tkinter.Canvas(frame,bg = 'white',width=500, height=500)

def generate():
            canvas.create_oval(200,300,210,310) #my first oval

the problem that i'm having with this is that the computer is waiting for 2 sec then displays both oval but me i want 1 at a time.....

someone please help me in doing this

Please use the proper code tags around your code. Don't quote the whole thing or your code tags won't work.

Proper code tags are
your code here


Please format your code so it is somewhat readable. Also, since your ovals are equal, how would you know the difference?

This how you might do it:

import Tkinter as tk

def generate():
    frame.after(2000, oval2)

def oval1():
    canvas.create_oval(200, 300, 210, 310, fill='red')

def oval2():
    canvas.create_oval(200, 300, 210, 310, fill='blue')

frame = tk.Frame()

canvas = tk.Canvas(frame, bg='white', width=500, height=500)
button = tk.Button(frame, fg="blue", text="GENERATE", command=generate)


hi.... its very nice what u've given but i want to use the time.sleep() function as later on i will have to add more oval.can you please tell me. thnx..
