I'm using Python 2.7.4 and new to Tkinter, and I'm stuck with the following code. I generated an event "test" and set the "data" option with a string, but an error occurred when retrieving it from event.
Error -> AttributeError: Event instance has no attribute 'data'
from Tkinter import * def handle_it(event): # print "event handler" print event.data root = Tk() root.after(1, lambda: root.event_generate('<<test>>', data="hi there")) root.bind('<<test>>', handle_it) root.mainloop()
I can't find the related Python docs for this case, so I referred to the tcl document as below http://www.tcl.tk/man/tcl8.5/TkCmd/event.htm#M14
Does TKinter of Python 2.7 support "data" option? Thanks!
