Loading Tkinter in Python for Rhino 8

Is tkinter not supported in Rhino’s script editor? I’ve tried installing with # r: tkinter as well as with pip but neither are working. I have been able to install matplotlib just fine.

I tested this on the newest Rhino 8.6:

#! python3

import rhinoscriptsyntax as rs
import scriptcontext as sc
import math

import System
import System.Collections.Generic
import Rhino

import tkinter

tkinter._test()

Worked fine.

What error is happening on the computer?

Go to the Tools pulldown > Open Logger and send the results may help.

Also, Rhino does come with ETO built in that can also be used:

I just get a traceback error to line 36 saying No module named ‘tkinter’ (see image below)

I was able to get it installed in my default python library so I can run the test dialog fine from the terminal, but it isn’t wanting to install in rhinocode. when I try installing via pip in the rhinocode directory, I get this error:

ERROR: Could not find a version that satisfies the requirement tkinter (from versions: none)
ERROR: No matching distribution found for tkinter

I’m on 8.5, but it says it’s up to date when I run a check.

I was hoping to get tkinter working instead of Eto because I wanted to explore tkintermapview (which incidentally installed fine)

Yes, please send us the full Log. We will take a look.

Also, we have made a lot of updates in 8.6, here is a downloader for windows that will update Rhino 8:

There’s a youtrack issue by @eirannejad re implementing tkinter: https://mcneel.myjetbrains.com/youtrack/issue/RH-67505

Looks like it worked on Windows, but not on Mac.
