Hi,

I have several tkinter entries created within a loop, where users input numbers.

I wish to create a reset button to set all entries to zero.
On the following code the reset button will just reset the last entry.

How is possible to call each of the entry and set its value to zero ?

Thanks for any help

from Tkinter import *

data = [
('a', 0, 'liters soda'),
('b', 0, 'liters beer'),
('c', 0, 'liters wine')
]

## Create grid, extracting infos from the data array
## Collect the text variables to list for use
def createWidgets(root, clist=[]):
    L=0
    global c_w
    while L < len(data):
        cg_w=DoubleVar()
        clist.append(cg_w)
        l_w=Label(root, text=data[L][2])
        l_w.grid(row=L)
        c_w=Entry(root, textvariable=cg_w, width=3)
        c_w.grid(row=L,column=1)
        L+=1

root=Tk()
root.title('Bar')
##
cl=[]

createWidgets(root,cl)

## Example of simple function using values from an edited list (cl)
def Calc():
    L=0
    v=0
    lit=0
    for L,v in enumerate(cl):
        lit+=v.get()
    TotLiters.configure(text='%g' % lit)

def SetToZero():
    c_w.delete(0,END)
    cg_w=0.0
    c_w.insert(END,cg_w)
    

compute = Button(root, text=' Total liters = ', command=Calc)
compute.grid(row=0,column=3)

reset = Button(root, text=' reset ', command=SetToZero)
reset.grid(row=2,column=3)

TotLiters=Label(root, width=10)
TotLiters.grid(row=0,column=4)

root.mainloop()

You have to return the list that stores the textvariables and pass it to the next function. Also, you should really be using a class structure for this.

from Tkinter import *
from functools import partial

data = [
('a', 0, 'liters soda'),
('b', 0, 'liters beer'),
('c', 0, 'liters wine')
]

## Create grid, extracting infos from the data array
## Collect the text variables to list for use
def createWidgets(root, clist=[]):
    L=0
#    global c_w     no help
    first=0
    while L < len(data):
        cg_w=DoubleVar()
        clist.append(cg_w)
        l_w=Label(root, text=data[L][2])
        l_w.grid(row=L)
        c_w=Entry(root, textvariable=cg_w, width=3)
        c_w.grid(row=L,column=1)

        if L==0:
            first=c_w
        L+=1
    first.focus_set()
    return clist

## Example of simple function using values from an edited list (cl)
def Calc():
    L=0
    v=0
    lit=0
    for L,v in enumerate(cl):
        lit+=v.get()
    TotLiters.configure(text='%g' % lit)

def SetToZero(entries_list):
    """ set all textvariables in the input list to zero
    """
    for tk_var in entries_list:
        tk_var.set(0.0)

root=Tk()
root.title('Bar')
##
cl=[]

list_of_entries=createWidgets(root,cl)

compute = Button(root, text=' Total liters = ', command=Calc)
compute.grid(row=0,column=3)

reset = Button(root, text=' reset ',
               command=partial(SetToZero, list_of_entries))
reset.grid(row=2,column=3)

TotLiters=Label(root, width=10)
TotLiters.grid(row=0,column=4)

exit = Button(root, text='Exit', command=root.quit)
exit.grid(row=3,column=3)

root.mainloop()
