Re: Tk Entry not updating when textvariable changes
in thread Tk Entry not updating when textvariable changes
grrr, that was it, thanks!
In my actual code, about half of my entry textvariables are using references and half aren't (because I was cutting-and-pasting chunks basically). Of course, the ones I was just now testing were NOT references and the ones that are references aren't in something I expect to update, so I wasn't seeing anything update.
I then just grabbed the chunk of code without the references and tried it stand-alone and didn't see/think to make the textvariables point to references so I assumed I was doing something really dumb..... Which I was :)
