Hi all,

while executing the following piece of code:

import tkinter
import tkinter.tix

if __name__=='__main__':
    root = tkinter.Tk()
    dirlist = tkinter.tix.DirSelectBox(root)

the following error occurred:

Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "<...>", line 6, in <module>
    dirlist = tkinter.tix.DirSelectBox(root)
  File "C:\Python32\lib\tkinter\", line 712, in __init__
    TixWidget.__init__(self, master, 'tixDirSelectBox', ['options'], cnf, kw)
  File "C:\Python32\lib\tkinter\", line 322, in __init__, self._w, *extra)
_tkinter.TclError: invalid command name "tixDirSelectBox"
