Hi guys, i have a tricky problem with this wxgtk gui and thread nesting. As you can see i'm trying to collect data through a buffer ( self.data= dict() ) through the main gui. I need to get the data from the ComboBox and the three textfields then i need to pass them to a gnuradio flow graph ( i don't know if many of you are expertise with the gnuradio platform but here i'm doing a wxgtk flow graph ). Here's the code with the unnecessary modules disabled....

when i click on the Start ! button the miothread1 function collects the data from the GUI and calls the calculate function in which i recall the stored data in my buffer and pass them to the flow graphs. However the interpreter crashes giving me the error at bottom page.

could you help me to solve this problem ? thx in advance, Arturo.

error :

[xcb] Unknown request in queue while dequeuing

Your code is not indented properly, no, that was just problem with your long lines in mobile screen, I will check it up.

Finally the indention was off, you are mixing tabs with spaces, also you are naming functions with Capitalized names, which look like object names due to Python conventions.

Edited 4 Years Ago by pyTony: n/a

sorry about the Capitaliazion of some functions....capitalization was useful to me some time developing this code......

can you or somebody else help me ?
