i cant figure out how to put popup window to show in the middle of my text editor?
It is writen with Toplevel in tkinter.
Have you tried the tkMessageBox module? It has modal dialogs like showinfo and askyesno.
Hi I have custom dialog that needs to popup in the middle of the screen or in the middle of my gui
Then you can create it and call its lift() or raise() method to make it show up above the parent.
Something like this will work fine:
from Tkinter import * root = Tk() root.title('root win') root.geometry("400x300+30+30") # create child window top = Toplevel() top.title('top win') top.geometry("200x100+100+130") top.lift(aboveThis=root) root.mainloop()
