I hope you don't mind if I divert this discussion a little. Would you
happen to know how to compare the text of a given text box to a word?


I type hello into a text field and press go, the GUI opens a new
window and closes the current GUI window, but only if hello is typed
into the text field.

I have absolutely no clue on how to go about this seeing as simply
comparing text-contents a-text-field to a string does not work.
