A subtle point about coverage. The target module must be imported.
from idlelib import SearchDialogBase as sdb  # works.
import idlelib.SearchDialogBase as sdb  # does not
at least not as I invoke coveragepy in my batch file.

With this change, the four uncovered lines were "" after 
in create_option_buttons and create_other_buttons. I added a parameter to checkboxtests and a new method test_create_option_buttons_flipped. That leaves the line after isback() and I think the radiobutton test probably covers that anyway.

The attached file has a few other cosmetic changes, like 'self.searchengine' to 'self.engine'.

I would like to remove the duplicate testing in test_create_widgets. All we care for that test is that create_widgets calls the other four create methods. This could be done either by mocking the other methods (unittest.mock or custom replacement) or by looking to see that there is one entry, option button, other button, and command button.

Were you planning to do the check-label todos?
