Python GUI

This small Python script creates a window application and handles menu events as well as updating statusbar at the bottom.

#!/usr/bin/python

from Tkinter import *
import tkMessageBox

class StatusBar(Frame):

    def __init__(self, master):
        Frame.__init__(self, master)
        self.label = Label(self, text="", bd=1, relief=SUNKEN, anchor=W)
        self.label.pack(side=BOTTOM, fill=X)

    def set(self, format, *args):
        self.label.config(text=format % args)
        self.label.update_idletasks()

    def clear(self):
        self.label.config(text="")
        self.label.update_idletasks()

class App:

    def __init__(self, parent):
        self.this = self
        frame = Frame(parent)
        parent.protocol("WM_DELETE_WINDOW", ConfirmQuit)

        parent.geometry("%dx%d%+d%+d" % (600, 400, 100, 50))

        # create a menu
        menu = Menu(parent)
        parent.config(menu=menu)

        filemenu = Menu(menu)
        menu.add_cascade(label="File", menu=filemenu)

        menu.add_cascade(label="Help", menu=helpmenu)
        helpmenu.add_command(label="About...", command=self.About)

        status_bar.set("%s", "Creating a new file")

    def OpenFile(event):

        status_bar.set("%s", "Opening a file")

    def About(event):
        print "(c) 2012, mlutfi", event
        status_bar.clear()

    def say_hi(self):
        print "hi there, everyone!"

    def Exit(event):
        ConfirmQuit()

class BaseWindow:
    def __init__(self, parent):
        Toplevel()
