How do I give focus to a python Tkinter text widget?

TkinterServer Side ProgrammingProgramming

In various applications, tkinter widgets are required to be focused to make them active. Widgets can also grab focus and prevent the other events outside the bounds. To manage and give focus to a particular widget, we generally use the focus_set() method. It focuses the widget and makes them active until the termination of the program.

Example

In the following example, we have created two widgets: an Entry widget and a text widget in the same window. By using the focus_set() method, we will activate the focus on the text widget.

#Import tkinter library
from tkinter import *
from PIL import Image,ImageTk
#Create an instance of tkinter frame
win = Tk()
#Set the geometry
win.geometry("750x250")
#Create a Text WIdget
text= Text(win, width= 30, height= 10)
text.insert(INSERT, "Hello World!")
#Activate the focus
text.focus_set()
text.pack()
#Create an Entry Widget
entry=Entry(win,width= 30)
entry.pack()
win.mainloop()

Output

Running the above code will display a window that contains the focus on the text widget.
