I am quite new to python and am having some problem with it regarding the GUI portion. I am using TkInter module for the GUI. I am using it for a project. When you run the above the program you get to see a entire frame at one go, whereas what i am trying for is that the "tasks" button is pressed, the textboxes nad labels appear in a different frame connected to current frame. I used the 'command' option for callback function but it seems to running like a normal function with 'textboxes' frame showing before the "tasks" button is pressed.

The 'print' statements were for debugging purpose only but to no avail..

Please Help

You have two problems:
1. Your code is all over the place
2. Your binding everything to the same window.

1. With your class, you should call root = Tk() inside the __init__ function, this also means that root.mainloop() should go at the end of the __init__ function. Also, I would recommend reordering the code in a more logical order. Because all your functions are in a class, you can ignore the problem of having to declare a function before calling it.

2. You are using two frames, but they are on the same window - root. They will automatically be combined and placed inside the same window. If you want them to be seperate, I suggest having either a second full class (with __init__ function) or a seperate function. Within this, you should call root = Tk() again, to create another window. It may not be exactly what you want, but it'll do for now.

I am making a series of Python and Tkinter tutorials on youtube, including one of the use of classes. Here is my channel:

I hope this helps. :)
