Python Tkinter Frame
The Frame widget is very important for the process of grouping and organizing other widgets in a somehow friendly way. It works like a container, which is responsible for arranging the position of other widgets.
It uses rectangular areas in the screen to organize the layout and to provide padding of these widgets. A frame can also be used as a foundation class to implement complex widgets.
Here is the simple syntax to create this widget:
w = Frame ( master, option, ... )
master: This represents the parent window.
options: Here is the list of most commonly used options for this widget. These options can be used as key-value pairs separated by commas.
|bg||The normal background color displayed behind the label and indicator.|
|bd||The size of the border around the indicator. Default is 2 pixels.|
|cursor||If you set this option to a cursor name (arrow, dot etc.), the mouse cursor will change to that pattern when it is over the checkbutton.|
|height||The vertical dimension of the new frame.|
|highlightbackground||Color of the focus highlight when the frame does not have focus.|
|highlightcolor||Color shown in the focus highlight when the frame has the focus.|
|highlightthickness||Thickness of the focus highlight.|
|relief||With the default value, relief=FLAT, the checkbutton does not stand out from its background. You may set this option to any of the other styles|
|width||The default width of a checkbutton is determined by the size of the displayed image or text. You can set this option to a number of characters and the checkbutton will always have room for that many characters.|
Try the following example yourself:
from Tkinter import * root = Tk() frame = Frame(root) frame.pack() bottomframe = Frame(root) bottomframe.pack( side = BOTTOM ) redbutton = Button(frame, text="Red", fg="red") redbutton.pack( side = LEFT) greenbutton = Button(frame, text="Brown", fg="brown") greenbutton.pack( side = LEFT ) bluebutton = Button(frame, text="Blue", fg="blue") bluebutton.pack( side = LEFT ) blackbutton = Button(bottomframe, text="Black", fg="black") blackbutton.pack( side = BOTTOM) root.mainloop()
When the above code is executed, it produces the following result::
