Adding a scrollbar to a group of widgets in Tkinter
Let’s suppose you want to add a scrollbar to a group of widgets in an application, then you can use the Scrollbars property in tkinter. Adding Scrollbars to a group of widgets can be achieved by Scrollbar(....options).
In this example, we will define a group of Listbox widgets and then add a vertical scrollbar to make the list scrollable.
#Import the required library from tkinter import * #Create an instance of tkinter frame or window win = Tk() #Define the geometry win.geometry("750x400") #Create a listbox listbox= Listbox(win) listbox.pack(side =LEFT, fill = BOTH) #Create a Scrollbar scrollbar = Scrollbar(win) scrollbar.pack(side = RIGHT, fill = BOTH) #Insert Values in listbox for i in range(150): listbox.insert(END, i) listbox.config(yscrollcommand = scrollbar.set) scrollbar.config(command = listbox.yview) win.mainloop()
Running the above code will display a window that contains a list of numbers in the range 1-150. The list of numbers is bound with a vertical scrollbar which makes the list vertically scrollable.
