 I think

Because in for loop i is overwritten every time - as you said i=3 is
the last command.
Replacing for with sapply should fix it:

OK.but <- NULL
PressedOK <- function(i)
   tkmessageBox(message=paste("You pressed OK!",i,sep=""))

tt <- tktoplevel()
  OK.but[[i]] <- tkbutton(tt,text="OK",command=function()PressedOK(i))
