# Adding coloured text to selected text in Tkinter

TkinterPythonGUI-Programming

If we want to implement a text editor in an application that can accept multiline user input, then we can use the Tkinter Text widget. The Text widget in Tkinter is generally used to create a text editor for an application, where we can write text and perform operations like selecting, editing and creating a specific text in the application.

If you want to highlight a text and provide a color to the highlighted text, then you can use the tag_add("start", "first", "second") method. The tag_add() method takes two arguments for selecting the specified text from the text widget. You can give a background color to the highlighted text by configuring the tags using tag_configure() method.

## Example

# Import the required library
from tkinter import *

# Create an instance of tkinter frame or window
win = Tk()

# set the size of the window
win.geometry("700x350")

# Create a new frame
frame= Frame(win)

# Add a text widget
text= Text(frame)

# insert a new text
text.insert(INSERT, "Hello, Welcome to TutorialsPoint.com")
text.pack()

# Add a tag to the specified text
win.mainloop()
