im trying to go another frame and go back to first frame with button.(like next page.)
i can go second frame easily but i cant go back to mainframe. i tried it with place_forget() and destroy(). but when i use them i cant see my mainframe.
which func i need to go back to mainframe named "messageWindow"
here is part of my code:
messageWindow= Tk()
frame1 = Frame(messageWindow, width =400, height=100, relief = tkinter.FLAT)
frame1.pack(side=TOP, expand= True, fill=BOTH)
frame2 = Frame(messageWindow, width =400, height=500, relief = tkinter.FLAT)
frame2.pack(side=TOP, expand= True, fill=BOTH)
def goSearchBarButton():
    searchbarFrame = Frame(messageWindow,width =400, height=600, relief = tkinter.FLAT),y=0)
    nframe1 = Frame(searchbarFrame, width =400, height=100, relief = tkinter.FLAT)
    nframe1.pack(side=TOP, expand= True, fill=BOTH)
    nframe2 = Frame(searchbarFrame, width =400, height=500, relief = tkinter.FLAT, background="black")
    nframe2.pack(side=TOP, expand= True, fill=BOTH)
    def goBack():
        nframe2.destroy()  ## here is the part im having trouble with
    backIcon1 = PhotoImage(file="backIcon.png")
    backIconButton1 = Button(nframe1,image=backIcon1, command= goBack)
    backIconButton1.image= backIcon1, y=14)
searchbarIcon = PhotoImage(file="searchbar.png")
searchbarIconButton= Button(frame2, image = searchbarIcon, command= goSearchBarButton),y=30)backIcon=PhotoImage(file="backIcon.png")
backIconButton = Button(frame1, image=backIcon),y=14)

What I have tried:

i tried it with place_forget() and destroy()

You may need to redraw the contents of the main window after you destroy the other frames. You should break your code into separate functions so you can call any part more than once.

It is really a design issues. If you code everything in one long procedure then you will find it more and more difficult to fix problems. So fix your design now and you will be able to see where any corrections or improvements can be made.
