class WidgetRedirector:

    """Support for redirecting arbitrary widget subcommands.

    Some Tk operations don't normally pass through Tkinter.  For example, if a
    character is inserted into a Text widget by pressing a key, a default Tk
    binding to the widget's 'insert' operation is activated, and the Tk library
    processes the insert without calling back into Tkinter.

    Although a binding to <Key> could be made via Tkinter, what we really want
    to do is to hook the Tk 'insert' operation itself.

    When a widget is instantiated, a Tcl command is created whose name is the
    same as the pathname widget._w.  This command is used to invoke the various
    widget operations, e.g. insert (for a Text widget). We are going to hook
    this command and provide a facility ('register') to intercept the widget

    In IDLE, the function being registered provides access to the top of a
    Percolator chain.  At the bottom of the chain is a call to the original
    Tk widget operation.

    def __init__(self, widget):
        self._operations = {}
        self.widget = widget            # widget instance = tk =        # widget's root
        w = widget._w                   # widget's (full) Tk pathname
        self.orig = w + "_orig"
        # Rename the Tcl command within Tcl:"rename", w, self.orig)
        # Create a new Tcl command whose name is the widget's pathname, and
        # whose action is to dispatch on the operation passed to the widget:
        tk.createcommand(w, self.dispatch)

    def __repr__(self):
        return "WidgetRedirector(%s<%s>)" % (self.widget.__class__.__name__,

    def close(self):
        for operation in list(self._operations):
        widget = self.widget; del self.widget
        orig = self.orig; del self.orig
        tk =
        w = widget._w
        # restore the original widget Tcl command:"rename", orig, w)

    def register(self, operation, function):
        self._operations[operation] = function
        setattr(self.widget, operation, function)
        return OriginalCommand(self, operation)

    def unregister(self, operation):
        if operation in self._operations:
            function = self._operations[operation]
            del self._operations[operation]
            if hasattr(self.widget, operation):
                delattr(self.widget, operation)
            return function
            return None

    def dispatch(self, operation, *args):
        '''Callback from Tcl which runs when the widget is referenced.

        If an operation has been registered in self._operations, apply the
        associated function to the args passed into Tcl. Otherwise, pass the
        operation through to Tk via the original Tcl function.

        Note that if a registered function is called, the operation is not
        passed through to Tk.  Apply the function returned by self.register()
        to *args to accomplish that.  For an example, see

        m = self._operations.get(operation)
            if m:
                return m(*args)
                return, operation) + args)
        except TclError:
            return ""
