Scroll bars with tkinter

Hello,
I have a GUI that I made up and inside it is a listbox, I got the scroll bar linked to the listbox. The problem I'm having is that the scroll bar is not stretched to the size of the list box. I can't seem a find a solution to this since I am not using pack() or making my GUI with classes since I am fairly new to this. Any one have any advice to getting the scroll bar to fit the list box?

Thank you for any advice that you guys can give.

    Hi, how about:

    [code]
    from Tkinter import *

    root = Tk()

    scrollbar = Scrollbar(root)
    scrollbar.grid(column=1, row=0, [blue]sticky='NS'[/blue])

    listbox = Listbox(root, yscrollcommand=scrollbar.set)
    for i in range(1000):
    listbox.insert(END, str(i))
    listbox.grid(column=0, row=0)

    scrollbar.config(command=listbox.yview)

    mainloop()
    [/code]

    [italic]Codesnippet taken from (with slight changes):
    http://www.pythonware.com/library/tkinter/introduction/index.htm
    [/italic]

    That blue part makes the widget (using the grid geometry manager) to take up the remaining space in the directions given (N=north, S=south, E=east, W=west).

    I don't know whether that was the problem or...
