I’m looking for the same effect as
I wrote a simple web-based interpreter this afternoon using Twisted.web. You basically submit a block of Python code through a form, and the client comes and grabs it and executes it. I want to be able to make a simple popup message, without having to re-write a whole bunch of boilerplate wxPython or TkInter code every time (since the code gets submitted through a form and then disappears).
I’ve tried tkMessageBox:
import tkMessageBox tkMessageBox.showinfo(title="Greetings", message="Hello World!")
but this opens another window in the background with a tk icon. I don’t want this. I was looking for some simple wxPython code but it always required setting up a class and entering an app loop etc. Is there no simple, catch-free way of making a message box in Python?
You could use an import and single line code like this:
import ctypes # An included library with Python install. ctypes.windll.user32.MessageBoxW(0, "Your text", "Your title", 1)
Or define a function (Mbox) like so:
import ctypes # An included library with Python install. def Mbox(title, text, style): return ctypes.windll.user32.MessageBoxW(0, text, title, style) Mbox('Your title', 'Your text', 1)
Note the styles are as follows:
## Styles: ## 0 : OK ## 1 : OK | Cancel ## 2 : Abort | Retry | Ignore ## 3 : Yes | No | Cancel ## 4 : Yes | No ## 5 : Retry | Cancel ## 6 : Cancel | Try Again | Continue
Note: edited to use
MessageBoxW instead of
