vailixi Posted December 2, 2018 Share Posted December 2, 2018 I'm learning tkinter for python3. I'm trying to use a StringVar() from Entry (txtbox) txtvara = StringVar() c=Button(root) photo1=PhotoImage(file="/root/install.gif") c.config(image=photo1,width="100",height="30",activebackground="#f2f1f0",bg="#f2f1f0",command=sysinstall) c.place(x = 100,y = 92) e=Entry(root, width=12,textvariable=txtvara) e.place(x = 3, y = 92) I want to use the text in the system call but I can't even get it to print the variable to console. It just prints PY_VAR1 which I don't really understand. def sysinstall(): txtvarb = str(txtvara) print(txtvarb) Question: How do I convert StringVar() into string and use that to change label text in a system call?
