Tkinter multiple windows in the same window
Hello everyone,

I am trying to develop an application in Tkinter that have one main screen and 4 sub-screens inside the main screen. I want to control this screens (close, minimize and drag them) . Has anyone done this before ?
tunnel rush

Thanks in advance
Tkinter doesn't provide any support for what you are trying to do. Windows in windows is not a common design pattern. Docking is common enough, but the days of user interfaces with tiled windows inside a main window are mostly gone, relegated to interactive development environments. What are you trying to do with these windows? Why would you want to close or resize them?
