Is there a way to preselect/highlight a listbox item with the Tkinter GUI toolkit at the startup of the program without clicking the mouse on it?
Listbox.activate(n) selects line number n graphically and also adds it to Listbox.curselection()
Sorry Jeff, this does not seem to highlight or select the line.
import Tkinter as tk root = tk.Tk() listbox = tk.Listbox(root) listbox.pack() for item in ["one", "two", "three", "four"]: listbox.insert(tk.END, item) listbox.selection_set(first=2) root.mainloop()
Yeah, that works like a charm. Thanks.
