Tkinter - Force toplevel window to stay on top of Tk() window


R

Hi,
I have a Tk() window "base_win = Tk()" with multiple frames on it
having a combination of widgets. If I click on say a button widget
which launches a new top level window "new_win = TopLevel()", I was
looking for a way for this "new_win" to always stay on top of
"base_win" till I close "new_win", as a result also not allowing any
selections to be made in the "base_win" .
Thanks
Rahul

You need to research showing modal dialogs. This link looks promising:

This one from Lundh's site has better explanations on dialog's in
general:
