I am developing a multithreaded application in pygtk using quickly and stuck with threads. So I am experimenting with various possibilities and found out that my thread work only when I do something in the gui Here is my code
t = threading.Thread(target=self.calc,args=(treeiter)) t.daemon = True t.start() def calc(self,treeiter): store=self.builder.get_object('liststore1') per=0 while 1: print "Calcing and changing percent,per="+str(per) tore.set_value(treeiter,4,str(int(per))+"%") per+=1 time.sleep(1)
I am trying to update the value in a
liststore by thread but it only get update when I click some button or some other gui events why is that so? why is the thread not running in the background?
