Im working on my first big project, a GUI library for movie files (much like in itunes). so far i have the ability to list the movies title director and year in a list box as well as add movies to the database, however it is only text no actual movie files. is there a way for me to link the movie file to the text in the listbox?
what i am specifically looking for is when the user is adding the title year director and such (using Tkinter Entry widget) a ask file dialog will show up for the user to select the movie. so later i can click on it in the list and it will open the movie
global titleadd, directoradd, yearadd addboard = Tkinter.Toplevel() addboard.title("Add a movie") addboard.geometry("450x100") #addboard(padx=10, pady=10) print "add" #adding the title lbtitle = Tkinter.Label(addboard, text = "Enter the movie's title:") lbtitle.grid(row = 1, column = 1) titleadd = StringVar() entitle = Tkinter.Entry(addboard, textvariable = titleadd) entitle.grid(row = 1, column = 3) entitle.insert(0, "Title") #adding the director lbdirector = Tkinter.Label(addboard, text = "Enter the mmovie's director:") lbdirector.grid(row = 2, column = 1) directoradd = StringVar() endirector = Tkinter.Entry(addboard, textvariable = directoradd) endirector.grid(row = 2, column = 3) endirector.insert(0, "Director") #adding the year lbyear = Tkinter.Label(addboard, text = "Enter the movie's year:") lbyear.grid(row = 3, column = 1) yearadd = StringVar() enyear = Tkinter.Entry(addboard, textvariable = yearadd) enyear.grid(row = 3, column = 3) enyear.insert(0, "Year") #if a value is left blank program will ask what to do #to be added later #The button and the commands to put it all together btnok = Tkinter.Button(addboard, text = "Continue", command = addcontinue) btnok.grid(row= 5, column = 4) btncancel = Tkinter.Button(addboard, text = "Cancel", command=addboard.destroy) btncancel.grid(row = 5, column = 1)
i know i havent been too clear, also this isnt the full program as im running close to 500 lines right now but i can post it if needed
