Newbie- scrolling data?
How do you make a scrollable text box?
I have a db that I can convert into xml, cvs or access and it has 5,000 entries. I want to be able to scroll through them with the up and down keys and for each one I have 5 different images that I want to display at teh same time. So when you hit the down arrow it would go from item 1 to item 2 and the images would all change from item1.jpg to item2.jpg and hitting the up arrow would go back to item 1 again.
What would be the best way to do this?

Which GUI did you want to use?
If you are using Tkinter then:
A scrollable textbox that displays some text
If it is actually a list of items then you can use the Listbox which funnily enough has lots of list mangement methods and sounds more like what you need.
