I would like to know if there is such widget in tk (or in any different standard Python 3 module), or how to create it:

enter image description here

Of course it doesn't have to look like this, but it should offer same functionality. Unfortunately PyQT, wxWidgets or any other non standard modules I cannot use.

Does this package offer the right functionality? –  Martijn Pieters Apr 24 '13 at 11:48
It looks very promising, but there are invalid links to documentation so it is hard to say what it can do really. And I can't find it in python 3 tkinter modules. –  Misery Apr 24 '13 at 15:58
Same problem I encountered. :-) Perhaps the downloadable package also contains the documentation? –  Martijn Pieters Apr 24 '13 at 16:00
Is that in standard python modules? –  Misery Apr 24 '13 at 16:05
No, it is not. The standard TKinter module doesn't have a tree widget. –  Martijn Pieters Apr 24 '13 at 16:06

I'm not familiar with any easy solutions from the standard Tkinter module for implementing a choice tree. But you may think about using the idlelib.TreeWidget module. It should already be built-in into your Python library. Just import the module to use it.

For more information, visit : pydoc.org/2.3.3/idlelib.TreeWidget.html
