Tkinter Buttons are used for handling certain operations in the application. In order to handle such events, we generally pass the defined function name as the value in the callback command. For a particular event, we can also pass the argument to the function in the button’s command.
There are two ways to pass the argument to the tkinter button command −
In this example, we will create a simple application that will contain a text label and a button to change the value of label text. We will pass the label as the argument in the button command by using lambda function.
#Import necessary Library from tkinter import * from tkinter import ttk #Create an instance of tkinter window win= Tk() #Set the geometry of tkinter window win.geometry("750x250") #Define the function to change the value in label widget def change_text(label): label.configure(text= "Hey, I am Label-2", background="gray91") #Create a Label label = Label(win, text= "Hey, I am Label-1", font= ('Helvetica 15 underline'), background="gray76") label.pack(pady=20) #Create a button btn= ttk.Button(win, text= "Change", command= lambda:change_text(label)) btn.pack(pady=10) win.mainloop()
Running the above code will display a window which contains a text label and a button to change the value of the label.
Now click on “Change” button to change the value of the label widget.
