Maricela Bruss Asks:
I am trying to get started with Tkinter. I checked ‘import _tkinter’ and ‘import Tkinter’ – and they seem to be fine with no error whatsoever.
I am getting stuck in the third test,
The error message:
Traceback (most recent call last):
File “<stdin>”, line 1, in <module>
NameError: name ‘Tkinter’ is not defined
I have identifed by version as Tkinter (caps T). however i also tried tkinter, just in case.
Any help would be appreciated !

This means python doesn’t know what a ‘TKinter’ is. This probably implies that you have not imported the Tkinter module before the Tkinter._test().
Try out his:
>>> import Tkinter
>>> from Tkinter import * will not work because you need the entire Tkinter directory for this to work –
from Tkinter import * also wastes namespace.

Thanks — hit the bulls eye !
Very stupid of me :)
I am getting a similar error
NameError: name ‘tk’ is not defined.
The documentation at Tkinter does not specify anything of this.
