Multi windows in tkinter buttons not responding correctly
... stand by, still reading through the 'imports' Big Grin
If it ain't broke, I just haven't gotten to it yet.

          bus1.write_pin(15, 0)
          Mainfloor.toggleButton1["text"] = ("Fireplace On")
               bus1.write_pin(15, 1)
               Mainfloor.toggleButton1["text"] = ("Fireplace Off")
Of course I may be wrong as I usually am  Confused

 class [email protected]
The class keyword starts a definition block, and like all other block structures (def, if, for), it uses a colon at the end of the line, not an @.

Mainfloor.toggleButton1["text"] = ("Fireplace On")
The Mainfloor class, itself, does not have a toggleButton1, but it's instances do.  So that would throw an error as you're trying to modify something that doesn't exist.

Nice try, though :)

I have no idea where the @ came from! I copied his code and then pasted his code as was and then again but modified it. I hadn't noticed that somehow the : had changed to @
Ah well I said I'm usually wrong.

You currently pass each object a controller object, but the Fireplace doesn't keep track of it.  If you do, then you can crawl into the controller and manipulate it's frames to get to the MainFloor to do what you're trying to do.  So, Fireplace would then look like this:

Thanks for the information I will have to do some research on events. I implemented the code changes you posted and I received this as an error:

Yes I know there is a lot of imports and I'm sure there is probably duplicates of the same thing. Like I mentioned I am very new to programming. Once I get a part of it working by itself I would copy and paste them together, adding new and getting rid of old. Going through the list of imports to find out which ones are being used hasn't been on my priority list.

frame = F(parent=container, controller=self)

You're constructing each window/frame with two parameters, parent, and controller.  So you can either change Fireplace to have both (def __init__(self, parent, controller):), or you can change Fireplace to use keyworded parameters (def __init__(self, controller=None):).  Either should fix the issue.
