    Is it possible to create a console app in Boa and have it run your python app in the console? How do I get it to display the output to the console??

    Thanks in advance!

      Strange question. Have you read the Python tutorial? Boa Constructor is programm to create GUI. Console is not GUI. To create python console application u just need to wirte code in ANY text editor (or IDLE: comes with Python) and save with ' .py' extension (for example Boa.py). About output - read Python Manual.

        No - it's a good question.
        Open BOA,
        in the BOA editor choose File/New/PythonApp
        and BOA will generate a small code frame for your console app.

        You can use all the BOA features like code browser (Explorer tab) and debugging.
        I generate all my python console apps this way.

        Output is done via print.
        Use the python help button in the BOA main bar to get a (slightly outdated) python help.
