I am trying to use the Python Sleep Function via import time; I get results but not the results I am looking for.
What I am trying to do is rather simple and only for visual effect in a Python GUI: Display GIF --> Sleep (pause) 5-seconds --> Display next GUI --> Repeat. Such as:
[B].[/B] [B].[/B] [B].[/B] image3 = "pic1.GIF" photo3 = PhotoImage(file=image3) time.sleep(5) image4 = "pic2.GIF" photo4 = PhotoImage(file=image4) [B].[/B] [B].[/B] [B].[/B]
What seems to happen is that I do note a pause, in this case roughly 5-seconds, but it happens before the GUI appears at all upon the screen; the canvas should display, then 1-by-1 each GIF should appear 5-seconds apart. Instead the pause occurs approximately 5-seconds after I initiate "RUN" and the entire thing is rendered without pause between GIFs
Any, hints, ideas, or direction would be greatly appreciated.
