April 2024 - This site, and Kamaelia are being updated. There is significant work needed, and PRs are welcome.


For examples and more explanations, see the module level docs.

class TkWindow(Axon.Component.component)

TkWindow() -> new TkWindow component

A component providing a Tk window. The first TkWindow created will be the "root" window.

Subclass to implement your own widgets and functionality on the window.



Methods defined here


You should be using the inbox/outbox interface, not these methods (except construction). This documentation is designed as a roadmap as to their functionalilty for maintainers and new component developers.

__destroyHandler(self, event)

Handler for destroy event. Do not override.


x.__init__(...) initializes x; see x.__class__.__doc__ for signature

destroyHandler(self, event)

Stub method. Reimplement with your own functionality to respond to a tk window destroy event.


Returns true if this window has been destroyed


Main loop. Stub method, reimplement with your own functionality.

Must regularly call self.tkupdate() to ensure tk event processing happens.


Populate the window with widgets, set its title, set up event bindings etc...

Do not bind the "<Destroy>" event, as this is already handled.

Stub method. Reimplement with your own functionality.


Calls tk's event processing loop (if this is the root window).

To be called from within self.main().


Got a problem with the documentation? Something unclear that could be clearer? Want to help improve it? Constructive criticism is very welcome - especially if you can suggest a better rewording!

Please leave you feedback here in reply to the documentation thread in the Kamaelia blog.
