Learn how to develop portable GUI programs to run on multiple operating systems. Revised and updated from the popular original, with a full set of new examples in Python and using PyGTK, this book provides all the information you'll need to write easy or complex GUI applications, offering one source of knowledge and best practices for user interface creation. Foundations of PyGTK Development presents numerous real-life examples that you can immediately put to use in your own applications. It begins with an overview of key topics such as widget choice, placement, and behavior, before moving on to more advanced issues. Building on your familiarity with Python, the book delves into new topics such as object inheritance early on to allow for a complete understanding of code examples later.
