[Glade-users] GUI project with Glade --- feasibility?

I have been using Python 2.7 for sometime now and it has become my

with using Python to create GUI applications for Windows. It seems 
that Glade might simplify this type of project.

More specifically I have Python 2.7.5 installed on a Windows Vista 
(32-bit) platform. I have been working on the design of a GUI project 
in which on the top menu there will be a help entry (at the right most 
position) with a drop down submenu that will contain a help item. If 
this is clicked on with the left mouse button of a mouse then an HTML 
file (one that contains help information for the user of the GUI) will 
be displayed. It is important that this HTML file is displayed in a 
separate form (or window) and *does not need an online connection* to 
a web browser (e.g. FireFox). This displayed, read only HTML, will 
contain local links, embedded images and videos, etc. It should be 
treated as if it were being displayed by a web browser (e.g. the user 
should be able to move to different topics, scroll, view a video, 
etc.), but a browser is not required.

Is such a project feasible with Glade? If yes, then any useful 
pointers/suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

hi Virgil ,
windows is not your friend in this case :)
It is not a Glade matter but a webkit problem. You have to embed a 
webkit viewer inside a window or frame made with glade.
There is no Webkit ( better webkitgtk or pywebkitgtk) ufficial package 
at this time for win32. I have a solution build by myself for my app but 
it is for python 2.6.
For python 2.7 and above I suggest you to use the AIO from 
http://opensourcepack.blogspot.it/ where you can find also the new  pygi 
+ gtk3 solution.
I suggest also to use import webbroser to open firefox and point it to 
the local html help file. Less trouble. ;)
