So I'm new to tkinter, but I've got what I want working, up to a certain point.
I'm not sure I've set it up correctly, but I've got a world map with buttons on the right, and an events log on the left, which fills up with labels as stuff happens.
Issue is that after a little while, the whole log fills up.
What is the best way to delete all the labels, or maybe delete the oldest (top) label each time?
Here's what I mean:
info=Label(root,text='Select a sector to move units from',wraplength=170)
As PM 2Ring suggested it is usually useful to append labels to a list for future ref:
tmp = Label(...) labels.append(tmp)
foreach label in labels: label.destroy()
If you do not want a list, and you're sure you want to clear everything in root:
foreach label in root.children.values(): label.destroy()
The children dict always holds the objects contained within. If you want to keep the map label, you will have to make your own list as I showed, without appending
info into it.
