Not directly. One possibility is to use Pmw.ScrolledFrame (http://
pmw.sourceforge.net/doc/ScrolledFrame.html) as the parent widget for
the contents of your dialog. Take the frame you get as an arg to the
fillInUI() method and immediately create a Pmw.ScrolledFrame with
that frame as the parent. Then fill your dialog in from the frame
you get from Pmw.ScrolledFrame.interior(). You can do this almost
painlessly like so:
def fillInUI(self, parent):
sf = Pmw.ScrolledFrame(parent)
origParent, parent = parent, sf.interior()
# remainder of fillInUI() remains the same...
Another possibility is to use the Feature_Buttons_Panel widget from
Chimera's CGLtk.Hybrid module. This is what Volume Viewer uses to
hide/show sections of its interface. You'd have to look at the
Volume Viewer code to see how it's called since I haven't used it
