Below is my test code, i have a list of names in a file, i read the names and i have to insert them as menu options in the menubar. Since its a dynamic menu and people can add new menu's it has to be read from a file everytime its loaded. Problem is that its appending an extra character after everyname in the menu, something line ''(check the attached screen shot) which i assume is the newline char, since i'm inserting that too... How can i get rid of that, any suggestions? i tried reading and writing the file in binary mode but makes no difference.
from Tkinter import * fileObj = open("c:/test","w") fileObj.write("rajat") fileObj.write("\n") fileObj.write("prasun") fileObj.close() file1 = open("c:/test","r") lines = file1.readlines() file1.close() root = Tk() menubar = Menu(root) filemenu = Menu(menubar) menubar.add_cascade(label="Names",menu=filemenu) for line in lines: filemenu.add_cascade(label=line) root.config(menu=menubar) root.mainloop()
