If I run the following code the textCtrl's aren't updated, they stay empty, but if I do print self.extra201.GetValue() I get the value that is set with the code beneath.

self.extra101.SetValue(names[1])
self.extra201.SetValue(names[2])
self.extra111.SetValue(str(money[1]))
self.extra211.SetValue(str(money[2]))

Why isn't it update !! :(

In that case I get the errors:

(python:25618): Gtk-CRITICAL **: gtk_entry_buffer_insert_text: assertion `GTK_IS_ENTRY_BUFFER (buffer)' failed

(python:25618): Gtk-CRITICAL **: gtk_entry_buffer_insert_text: assertion `GTK_IS_ENTRY_BUFFER (buffer)' failed

Do You mean I have to give whole my code and/or a screenshot of my wxglade window?

Or will you even with that not be able to help me?

Do you have to use something like queue_draw() to update the widget? The pygtk.org site has been down for 2 days now, so can't look it up, but try it and see.

Do You mean I have to give whole my code and/or a screenshot of my wxglade window?

Just write a simple program using whatever type of widget it is, label, entry box, etc., and update the text in some way. There may be a problem with the way you are coding it, but it may also be that the list "name" is empty. In whatever case, a simple program to illustrate will work fine.

And if you did not get the color change or set widow size answers. Check line 30 and 61 in this code found somewhere on the web at some time in the past.

What do you mean with "WxGlade does not show value"?
Is it WxGlade or your program you wrote using WxGlade?

Just a note on the smart side of things. If you have a problem for others to look at and possible solve, it behooves you to supply as much needed information as you can. Otherwise buzz off and don't waste everyone's time.

Edited 7 Years Ago by sneekula: n/a

@woee: I did exactly the same in an other program and there wxglade does change!
P.S. it's wxpython not pygtk

@sneekula: I made a program with wxglade, I added some functions in the code, but when I ran the script the entry values are not updated like I thought they would...
