Python- Changing background color on Button click


I am trying to write a python program which changes background color on click of button. However i am stuck up. Instead of changing the color currently it is creating a new frame every time.

please look at the code and let me know how to correct it

#!/usr/bin/env python

from Tkinter import *

class App(Frame):

    def __init__(self, master=None):
            Frame.__init__(self, master)
       = Frame(root, width=300, height=200, bg="blue"), expand=NO, fill=NONE)    
    def createWidgets(self):
        self.MyButton = Button(self)
            self.MyButton["text"] = "Change Color"
            self.MyButton["fg"]   = "red"
        self.MyButton["command"] =  self.bgcolor
        self.MyButton.pack({"side": "left"})

    def bgcolor(self):   "red" = Frame(root, width=300, height=200, bg="red")
  , expand=NO, fill=NONE)

root = Tk()
display = App(root)

python-config - output build options for python C/C++ extensions or embedding SYNOPSIS
python-config [ --prefix ] [ --exec-prefix ] [ --includes ] [ --libs ] [ --cflags ] [ --ldflags ] [ --extension-suffix ] [ --configdir ] [ --help ] DESCRIPTION
python-config helps compiling and linking programs, which embed the Python interpreter, or extension modules that can be loaded dynamically (at run time) into the interpreter. OPTIONS
--cflags print the C compiler flags. --ldflags print the flags that should be passed to the linker. --includes similar to --cflags but only with -I options (path to python header files). --libs similar to --ldflags but only with -l options (used libraries). --prefix prints the prefix (base directory) under which python can be found. --exec-prefix print the prefix used for executable program directories (such as bin, sbin, etc). --extension-suffix print suffix used for extension modules (including the _d modified for debug builds). --configdir prints the path to the configuration directory under which the Makefile, etc. can be found). --help print the usage message. EXAMPLES
To build the singe-file c program prog against the python library, use gcc $(python-config --cflags --ldflags) progr.cpp -o progr.cpp The same in a makefile: CFLAGS+=$(shell python-config --cflags) LDFLAGS+=$(shell python-config --ldflags) all: progr To build a dynamically loadable python module, use gcc $(python-config --cflags --ldflags) -shared -fPIC progr.cpp -o SEE ALSO
