[Solved] Tkinter Treeview not showing any text

I’m using python 3.12.2 and Tcl/Tk 8.6.13.

When I create a Treeview, the tree is there, but there is no text shown.

I’m not sure if this is an issue with my code, with tkinter, or an issue with a font on my Windows 11 system.

Any idea why I don’t see any text?

See this example:

import tkinter as tk
from tkinter import ttk

window = tk.Tk()
tree_view = ttk.Treeview()
tree_view.insert("", tk.END, "Item")
tree_view.insert("Item", tk.END, "SubItem")




The 3rd argument of .insert is the name, not the text.

I always let it make its own name:

item_iid = tree_view.insert("", tk.END, text="Item")
subitem_iid = tree_view.insert(item_iid, tk.END, text="SubItem")

By reading the treeview doc, I fixed the insert lines.

item = tree_view.insert("", 'end', text="Item")
tree_view.insert(item, tk.END, text="SubItem")

Look particularly at the Item Options and insert entries.

That’s what happens when I read too quickly.

Thank you very much for the help!
