in reply to tk messagebox position

I need help here to position the tk messagebox

Its a good and smart thing that a messagebox pops up on the center of the screen (or wherever the window manager decides to position it_ -- there is nothing to fix here, move along :)

How can I make it displayed somewhere else, relative to the application main window instead of center of the screen?

Search for tk window position, like tk window position and find Tk centering main window on screen.

I used ->place() and it didn't work.

Tk::place is a geometry manager, it is used for positioning widgets within a window, it is not used for positioning windows on screen
