For 2021 - online Python 3 training - see ((here)).

Our plans were to retire in summer 2020 and see the world, but Coronavirus has lead us into a lot of lockdown programming in Python 3 and PHP 7.
We can now offer tailored online training - small groups, real tutors - works really well for groups of 4 to 14 delegates. Anywhere in the world; course language English.

Please ask about private 'maintenance' training for Python 2, Tcl, Perl, PHP, Lua, etc.
binding rectangles with different procedures

Posted by vinzy1983 (vinzy1983), 14 December 2004
i want to bind each of the rectangles in my canvas with different procedures. i am actually binding all of them to a single but with different parameters. and these parameters would be the text displayed on the rectangle itself. now i am able to bind all the rectangles with only the last rectangle's text. but i want each of the rectangles to be binded with their respective text parameters..
could someone please tell me how can i do this..

I expect you're evaluating the bind command at the time you do the binding rather than at the time you run the bound command. You should be using a deferred block (with curly braces) to define the bound call, rather than quotes or square brackets.

Can you post up a sample of one of the commands that you use to do the binding please?

.top_$index_for_top.top_frame.cc_$cc_cnt bind rect_tag <Double-1> "draw_gui $name_for_check"

this is how i call the procedure thru bind command for the rectangle and i am calling this whenever i create a rectangle.
now i am able to open only the last resctangle's bound procedure. but i want to open each of the rectrangle's bound procedure separately, when i click on the rectangle.
