I am a complete newbie to both Python and Urwid, and I have a question regarding widget behavior.
I am building a status gui composed of Text widgets in a Listbox, traversed by a SimpleListWalker.
The problem I'm having is that when I update one of the Text widgets with 'varname.set_text("example"), the text string "example" appears in the appropriate Text widget, but it also appears to add a carriage return, meaning the entire display below the updated Text widget shifts down one line. How do I prevent this from happening? How can I simply overwrite what was in the Text widget in the first place without a new line showing up?
BTW, I am using Urwid1.0.1 and Python 2.4.
