Hello everyone. I am fairly new to both Python and Tkinter and have an issue I cannot seem to resolve, although I would have thought it simple.

I am trying to "gray out" and disable widgets when they lose focus. To that end, the code works. The problem is...it takes two mouse clicks on the widget to facilitate the method. I have included code to illustrate the problem.

Type anything in the entry field and hit enter...so far, so good...now select an item from the combobox...that enables the combobox but does not populate the combobox's entry with the item--the item must be selected a second time in order for this to happen.

Any ideas?


Thanking you in advance,

Chris Nethery
