[Tkinter] Resetting scale value back to 0 after the slider loses focus
I am using the scale widget in Tkinter and after I scale the value from 0 I would like the value to  go back to 0 once the slider loses focus. (This would be the CameraPan variable)

Example: I slide the scale to 45 and when I release the mouse the scale jumps back to 0.

My question is how can I do that? Thanks for your help.

#! /usr/bin/env python

from Tkinter import *
master = Tk()

def camera_pan(camera_pan_value):


CameraPan180 = Scale(master, from_=-90, to=90,tickinterval=15,label="Camera Pan (left right)",resolution=1,orient=HORIZONTAL,length=350,width=25,command=camera_pan)

create two variables cpmin = -90
cmmax = 90

#! /usr/bin/env python

from Tkinter import *
master = Tk()

cpmin = -90
cpmax = 90

def camera_pan(camera_pan_value):
   if(camera_pan_value == max):


CameraPan180 = Scale(master, from_=cpmin, to=cpmax, tickinterval=15, label="Camera Pan (left right)",
                                  resolution=1, orient=HORIZONTAL, length=350, width=25, command=camera_pan)

That doesn't work. I want the scale to reset to 0 after I move the slider.

Example: I slide the scale to 45 and when I release the mouse the scale automatically resets to 0 - without me having to drag it back to 0.
so change the -90 to 0 ?
