Attach scrollbar to listbox as opposed to window in Tkinter


A Listbox widget contains a list of items such as a list of numbers or characters. Let us suppose that you want to create a long list of items using the Listbox widget. Then, there should be a proper way to view all the items in the list. Adding Scrollbar to the list box widget will be helpful in this case.

To add a new scrollbar, you have to use Listbox(parent, bg, fg, width, height, bd, **options) constructor. Once the Listbox is created, you can add a scrollbar to it by creating an object of Scrollbar(**options).


#Import the required libraries
from tkinter import *
from tkinter import ttk

#Create an instance of Tkinter Frame
win = Tk()

#Set the geometry of Tkinter Frame

#Create a vertical scrollbar
scrollbar= ttk.Scrollbar(win, orient= 'vertical')
scrollbar.pack(side= RIGHT, fill= BOTH)

#Add a Listbox Widget
listbox = Listbox(win, width= 350, bg= 'bisque')
listbox.pack(side= LEFT, fill= BOTH)

for values in range(100):
   listbox.insert(END, values)

listbox.config(yscrollcommand= scrollbar.set)
#Configure the scrollbar
scrollbar.config(command= listbox.yview)



Running the above code will display a window that contains a Listbox widget with several items in it. The Vertical scrollbar is attached to the Listbox widget.
