How to display a Listbox with columns using Tkinter?

To deal with lots of data in any application, Tkinter provides a Treeview widget. It has various features such as displaying data in the form of tables consisting of Rows and Columns.

Treeview widget enables the user to add tables, insert data into it, and manipulate the data from the table. The Treeview widget can be constructed by defining the Treeview(parent, column, **options) constructor.


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

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

# Set the size of the tkinter window

s = ttk.Style()

# Add a Treeview widget
tree = ttk.Treeview(win, column=("c1", "c2", "c3"), show='headings', height=5)

tree.column("# 1", anchor=CENTER)
tree.heading("# 1", text="ID")
tree.column("# 2", anchor=CENTER)
tree.heading("# 2", text="FName")
tree.column("# 3", anchor=CENTER)
tree.heading("# 3", text="LName")

# Insert the data in Treeview widget
tree.insert('', 'end', text="1", values=('1', 'Joe', 'Nash'))
tree.insert('', 'end', text="2", values=('2', 'Emily', 'Mackmohan'))
tree.insert('', 'end', text="3", values=('3', 'Estilla', 'Roffe'))
tree.insert('', 'end', text="4", values=('4', 'Percy', 'Andrews'))
tree.insert('', 'end', text="5", values=('5', 'Stephan', 'Heyward'))




When we execute the above code, it will display a List of items with some columns.
