PythonTkinterServer Side ProgrammingProgramming

Let us suppose that we have created an Entry widget and we want to get the value of it. In this case, we can use the .get() method. It maps the input object into a variable which can be used further to print or display the entered value.


In this example, we will create an application that will display the input text thorough a label widget.

#Import tkinter library
from tkinter import *
from tkinter import ttk
#Create an instance of tkinter frame or window
win= Tk()
#Set the geometry of tkinter frame
def get_value():
   Label(win, text=e_text, font= ('Century 15 bold')).pack(pady=20)
#Create an Entry Widget
entry= ttk.Entry(win,font=('Century 12'),width=40)
entry.pack(pady= 30)
#Create a button to display the text of entry widget
button= ttk.Button(win, text="Enter", command= get_value)


Running the above code will display a window that contains an entry widget and a button.

In the given output, if we will click the Enter button. It will mimic the input value from the Entry widget.
