I created a list of buttons in my graphics window and I'm trying to get the buttons to activate, but no matter where I click in my window, Python says that I'm not clicking inside any buttons and they won't activate.

while not ready:
clickPt = win.getMouse()
for button in buttonList:
    if button.isClicked(clickPt):
        button.activate()

You should try to activate the button after you created it rather than after you click on it

The button should be activated right after you make and draw the button, and before getting a click from the mouse.

Ex:

button = Button(Point(10,10),10,10,"Button")
button.draw(window)
button.activate()
ready = False
while not ready:
    clickPt = win.getMouse()
    if button.isClicked(clickPt):
       ready = True

Hope this helps!
