Help building GUI with Tix

Posts: n/a
I am trying to build a GUI using the Tix module. What I want is a
paned window with a tree in the left pane and a notebook in the right
pane. I keep getting an error that I don't understand when adding
these widgets to the panes:

PythonWin 2.5.1 (r251:54863, May 1 2007, 17:47:05) [MSC v.1310 32 bit
(Intel)] on win32.

>>> import Tix
>>> app = Tix.Tk("Demo")
>>> panes = Tix.PanedWindow(app)
>>> panes.pack(fill=Tix.BOTH, expand=True)
>>> tree = Tix.Tree(panes)
>>> panes.add(tree)

Traceback (most recent call last):
File "<interactive input>", line 1, in <module>
File "C:\Program Files\Python25\lib\lib-tk\", line 1220, in
add, 'add', name, *self._options(cnf, kw))
TclError: bad window path name ".16442432..16442432"

What am I missing?

I figured it out after finding an example somewhere:

>>> import Tix
>>> app = Tix.Tk("Demo")
>>> panes = Tix.PanedWindow(app)
>>> left = panes.add('left')
>>> right = panes.add('right')
>>> tree = Tix.Tree(left)
>>> notebook = Tix.NoteBook(right)
>>> tree.pack()
>>> notebook.pack()
>>> panes.pack()
>>> app.mainloop()
