 Hangman tkinter help
#1
Code for game works. Except I cannot get the game end if the correct input is entered. For example if the word is 'mouse' and the user spells out 'mouse' before using all 7 guesses the game does not register that the user has the correct answer, and won't give the winning message. Any help is appreciated.

import random
from tkinter import * #Import tkinter
 
# Find if pressed letter is in word or not, update screen
def keyPressed(event):
    #modifying below global variable locally
    global count, latestStr, missedLetters
 
    current=event.char #get the pressed key
 
    # Check for non-letters
    if not current.isalpha():
        print("\t",current," is not a letter.")
        return
 
    # Check if current letter is already guessed and missed
    if current in missedLetters:
        print("\t",current," is already in missed list")
        return # Do nothing
 
    # Check if current alphabet is in original word
    if current in word:
        # Remove spaces if any in latestStr string
        # Convert it into a list
        latestStr_list=list(latestStr.replace("",""))
        for i in range(0,len(word)): #Traverse list
            # Check if current letter exist in word
 
            if word[i]==current:
                # Add the current alphabet in list
                latestStr_list[i] = word[i]
        latestStr = ''.join(latestStr_list)#Append space
 
        # Prepare message to display on screen

Here, you test for a win but don't do anything with it. You will have to set some boolean to True or False, based upon number of guesses, or when a player wins, which would end the game.
     if '*' not in latestStr: #Finished with success
        # Display success message, check for 1 more round
        msg1="Congrts! The word is: "+word
        msg2="To continue the game, press ENTER" 

    else: # Current alphabet is not in original word
        missedLetters += (current+'')#Add letter to missed
        count += 1 #Increment number of attempts
  
        ## or -----------------------------------------------
        if count < 7 and not word_guessed():
            msg1="Guess a word: "+ latestStr
            msg2="Missed letter: "+ missedLetters

I'm a bit confused on what you're saying. Could you explain more? Where do I need to set a true/false value?

#4
Where you want to exit the game. True means continue playing the game/ask for the next letter.

Maybe I'm over thinking this... but I did the following and got an error. I'm stuck...

Where do you take the input or the guess? Mine doesnt take any input, what part of program does it exactly?
