How to create transparent widgets using Tkinter?

TkinterPythonGUI-Programming

A Tkinter widget in an application can be provided with Transparent background. The background property of any widget is controlled by the widget itself.

However, to provide a transparent background to a particular widget, we have to use wm_attributes('transparentcolor', 'colorname') method. It works in the widget only after adding the same transparent color as the background color of the widget.

Example

#Import the required libraries
from tkinter import *

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

#Set the geometry
win.geometry("700x250")

#Adding transparent background property
win.wm_attributes('-transparentcolor', '#ab23ff')

#Create a Label
Label(win, text= "This is a New line Text", font= ('Helvetica 18'), bg= '#ab23ff').pack(ipadx= 50, ipady=50, padx= 20)

win.mainloop()

Output

When we compile the above code, it will display a window with a Label widget in transparent background.
