Tkinter--Column Alignment in a Dialog


W

W. eWatson

The code below produces:

Label title frame
lat/long fields in a frame
Label
x,y label fields in a frame
Standard OK-Cancel buttons

How do I fix it so the lat/long left most field lines up with the x,y left
most field?

That is, I get something like:

Lat: BOX Long: BOX
pixel-x: BOX pixel-y: BOX
I want the second line to be pushed to the left. BOX is just a data entry
field. I want the two rows as far to the margin on the left.

# testTk.py

class DialogPrototype(Dialog):

def body(self, master):

# Titles
fLocationTitle = Frame(master) # fL..., f for frame
fLocationTitle.pack()

# Frames
fLocationTitle = Frame(master)
fLocationTitle.pack()
fCoords = Frame(master)
fCoords.pack(side=TOP)
beef=Entry(fCoords,width=20)

fZenithTitle = Frame(master)
fZenithTitle.pack(side=TOP)
fZenith = Frame(master)
fZenith.pack(side=TOP)

self.title("Enter Site/Misc. Data")

# Latitude and Longitude
Label(fLocationTitle, text="Geographic Location").grid(row=0,column=0)

Label(fCoords, text='Latitude:').grid(row=0, sticky=W+E, padx=5,
pady=3)
lat = Entry(fCoords, width=12)
lat.grid(row=0, column=1)

Label(fCoords, text='Longitude:').grid(row=0, column=2, padx=5, pady=3)

long.grid(row=0, column=3)

# Zenith pixels
Label(fZenithTitle, text="Zenith Pixel

Label(fZenith, text='Zenith x:').grid(row=0, column=0, padx=5, pady=3)

zenith_x.grid(row=0, column=1)

print "apply"

lat=1.0
