Hello

I am trying to use Visual Tkinter but it's giving an "Invalid procedure call" error each time I try to place something on the form and the program closes.

Screenshot of what I'm getting:

I'm not even able to add a simple button to the form & when I try to add it gives this error & closes.

How do I get this to work?

Thank you

You are working with a version 0.0.115 beta. You should probably consider using another IDE, unless you want to join the Visual Tkinter team.

IMHO, Tkinter GUI code is too simple to write to warrant a visual approach. It's so much easier to build yourself a few Tkinter code templates and go with that.

BTW, code produced by Visual Tkinter doesn't seem to follow any Python syntax guidelines.

ok.. I wanted an IDE like that coz I am a absolute beginner in python programming and was too used to using Visual Studio.
Guess I'd find coding in tkinter easier as I go.

Thank you for the replies.

If you are an absolute beginner, use only robust and well known IDEs. Idle is a good first choice.

I am right now using Netbeans IDE & Wing IDE. These appear more friednly than IDLE.
I wanted an IDE where I could just drag and drop buttons & text boxes like in visual basic,instead of coding them.
I guess I'll have to only write the code for the GUI elements.

In the drag and drop section there is also the SpecTcl project, see:

The guibuilder-win32-ix86-20070129.exe works on Windows, but the code is scattered all over the map and maintenance would be a nightmare.

wxGlade is just a builder/designer for wxPython widgets, but the code it produces is the cleanest I have seen. It is easy to flesh out and maintain. For an example see:
