I am having problem with having a GUI interface to be implemented via a second file which just contains the file to read, plots made and some new functions to be evaluated based on that.
I am trying to create a GUI application using Tkinter. The way I am doing is as follows. I have a background script (say Background.py) which has two functions. Function X loads a data file, does some calculations and outputs a graph. The way I want to trigger this is via a GUI script in another file (GUI.py) which opens a panel with a button and when I click the button the function X in file Background.py should be evaluated and a plot should be shown. Once I check the plot, I can hit another button to close the plot and terminate the function X. Now I can choose to click another button to trigger the function Y in the file Background.py. These button should allow me to input three values, which should be the input to the function Y in the file Background.py. Once I hit this button, it should trigger the function Y and do what it it asks it to do. Now at the end, after that I can hit the button to close the gui.
How can I do this?. A general rough idea will be helpful.
I have put an example as much as I can:( at least the skeleton of the code)
I have a background file say (Background.py) and gui file ( say GUI.py)
import matplotlib.pyplot as plt
df = pd.read (myfile)
##df.stats # doing something and generating a plot from the file
def progY(y1, y2,y3):
## get the y1, y2, y3 from the GUI interface which the user has entered
#run a code... and generate an output file
import Background as bg
from tkinter import *
from tkinter.ttk import *
My question is now, does the above makes sense? How can I call the background functions from the GUI? The statements runprogram1 & runprogram2 are definitely not correct, How can I implement that. Also how will I ensure that I call the proram Y in Background once I have close the output from the program X?
I guess the questions makes sense. I am new to GUI and having hard time working this out, which I need to. any help will be very much appreciated.
