Hey, Devs!
I am new to the Python TKinter scene, and observed it's pretty similar to how a JFrame works in Java, with a few noticeable differences,
and one I see right now is that TextField and TextArea are merged into one big widget: Text, but I only want a TextField (only 1 line of text), but when I do


it stops text wrap, but if you press Enter a new-line character will be placed. is there any way around this?
