    Hello. I am trying to make a chatbot using tkinter and I can't seem to make it use each last input inserted by the user in the Text widget to display the next according question.
    I tried already to put the nested if/else statements within the Enter_pressed function but it uses only the first if and the last else.
    Any help appreciated" Thank you.

    root = Tk()
    Text and Entry widgets created
    def first_question():
    question = str(">>>Question....?")
    messages.insert(INSERT, '%s\n' % question)
    messages.after(2000, first_question)

    def Enter_pressed(event):
    global input_get
    input_get = input_field.get()
    messages.tag_config("right", justify="right")
    messages.insert(INSERT, '%s\n' % input_get, "right")
    if input_get == answer1: ## the answer for first_question
    quest2 = str(">>>Question 2?")
    messages.insert(INSERT, '%s\n' % quest2)
    return "continue"
    if input_get == answer2: ## the program can't seem to read this new input_get
    quest3 = str(">>>Question 3?")
    messages.insert(INSERT, '%s\n' % quest3)
    return "continue"
    messages.insert(INSERT, " goodbye")
    quest4 = str(">>>Question4?")
    messages.insert(INSERT, '%s\n' % quest3)
    frame = Frame(root)
    input_field.bind("<Return>", Enter_pressed)
