Howdy. Attached to this message please find sys_gui-test.pd . In it I'm exercising the sys_gui object, sending it tcl designed to display simple Tk GUI widgets. I'm using pd-extended v0.43.4-extended on Ubuntu Studio 12.04 .
Banging the first set of messages works, it shows a Tk messageBox and receives the user response. But banging the second set of messages fails to display the Tk listbox, or to return any error or other sign that Pd is processing the sent messages other than the sys_gui output bang. Though if I create the listbox again without first desroying it the Pd window returns an error that 'window name "lb" already exists in parent', as is proper. The same tcl used in commandline wish8.5 properly displays the listbox
I've tried to send some other tcl that properly displays Tk GUI widgets using commandline wish8.5 , and many of them fail in this same way, not only widgets using the grid command to display themselves. How do I get these widgets to work? Thanks for your insights.
