 How do I make my plot show up?
For this assignment, we are tasked with making a gui program that allows the user to enter many different values such as, x0, dx(0)/dt, t-final, dt, constant load A, sine load (Bt) and parameters for m, b and k. When the plot button is pressed, our plot window should open and we should be able to change the m, b and k sliders and we should see this response affect the graph.

My problem seems to be getting my function plotted. The error is coming within the function where I am trying to use my solveMBK function inside my PlotWindow function, I am not sure how to include the values from my sliders as well as the other values that are inputted in the start up window. Here is a look at my code:

import tkinter as tk

from matplotlib.backends.backend_tkagg import (FigureCanvasTkAgg, NavigationToolbar2Tk)

from matplotlib.figure import Figure

import numpy as np

def solveMBK(inlist):

    x0 = inlist[0]
    dx0 = inlist[1]
    dt = inlist[2]
    m = inlist[3]
    b = inlist[4]
    k = inlist[5]
    tf = inlist[6]
    Z = inlist[7]

    t = np.arange(0,tf,dt)

    z0 = np.zeros_like(t)
    z1 = np.zeros_like(t)

    z0[0] = x0
    z1[0] = dx0

    for c in range(len(t)-1):
        z0[c+1] = z0[c] + z1[c]*dt
        z1[c+1] = z1[c] + ((ABradiobutton(Z,t[c]) - k*z0[c] - b*z1[c]) / m)

    x = z0

    return t,x

def ABradiobutton(Z, t):
    if Z == 1:
        A = float(A_entry.get())
        return A

    elif Z == 2:
        B = float(B_entry.get())
        return np.sin(B*t)

def PlotWindow():

    root1 = tk.Tk()


    Mmin = float(Mmin_entry.get())

    Mmax = float(Mmax_entry.get())

    bmin = float(bmin_entry.get())

    bmax = float(bmax_entry.get())

    kmin = float(kmin_entry.get())

    kmax = float(kmax_entry.get())

    mscale = tk.Scale(root1, from_=Mmin, to=Mmax, label="m", bd=2, length=200, orient=tk.HORIZONTAL, command = funcPlot)


    mscale.grid(row=1, column=0)

    bscale = tk.Scale(root1, from_=bmin, to=bmax, label="b", bd=2, length=200, orient=tk.HORIZONTAL, command = funcPlot)

    Graph_Frame.grid(row=2, column=2, columnspan=10, rowspan=10)

    Fig = Figure(figsize=(5.5,4))

    a = Fig.add_subplot(111)
    if ABradiobutton == 1:
        t,x = solveMBK()

    elif Radio_Var == 2:
