[IPython-user] Closing an embedded IPython Shell.
Wed Jul 29 12:23:35 CDT 2009
Whew, this is much more complicated then. A few comments:
* Is your GUI running in the main thread? Most GUI toolkits I know of get
very grumpy if they are not run in the main thread. This alone could cause
* Are you uses IPython's threaded shells to integrate ipython with the GUI?
If not, can you better describe how the two are integrated.
* Sometime very soon (like next week) we will be merging some new code into
the ipython trunk that will have a much better way of doing GUI integration
(it doesn't require threads). While I haven't tested it with embedding, it
should make these things much simpler. Note: this new stuff won't be in
the upcoming 0.10 release.
