I'm trying to build a Tkinter that counts how many times a letter appears in the entry box. I want it so I enter letters A,B, or C into the entry box, and when I click 'Count' it displays how many times each letter appears. I feel like I'm really close but my update function isn't printing the correct number of counts, just 0 every time. Could someone help me out?
from Tkinter import * window = Tk() frame = Frame(window) frame.pack() var = StringVar() entry = Entry(frame, textvariable=var) entry.pack() count = () def update(): A = 0 B = 0 C = 0 variable = entry.get() for i in variable: if i == A: A = A + 1 if i == T: B = B + 1 if i == C: C = C + 1 count = ("Num As:%s Num Bs:%s Num Cs:%s" %(A,B,C)) frame2 = Label(frame, text=count) frame2.pack() button = Button(frame, text="Count", command=update) button.pack() window.mainloop()
Also, I'm still new to Python so I don't need to know how to cut corners, I just want my 'count' to display and update correctly :P Thanks!
