How to get the current cursor position for a text widget
I am using an onscreen keyboard to enter data for the tkinter gui. I was able to use the input field to enter, edit data using the on-screen keyboard, like getting the current cursor position and line length.
temp = self.entry_label.get() length_string=len(temp) cursor_position = self.entry_label.index(INSERT)
But I want to do the same for the Text widget. I can get the text for the text widget using the method
and its length, but I cannot get the current position of the mouse cursor.
temp=self.new_text.get(1.0, END) cursor_position = self.new_text.index(INSERT)
Sincerely this works and I can add a character to that position, but after adding the character cursor, it goes back to its original position, i.e. the last character
