Tkinter has an Entry widget to accept single-line user input. It has many properties and attributes that can be used to configure the Entry widget. To change the size (width or height of the Entry widget), we can use Internal Padding Properties – ipadx and ipady. By defining the value of internal padding, we can actually change the width and height of the Entry widget.
#Import the required Libraries from tkinter import * from tkinter import ttk #Create an instance of tkinter frame win = Tk() #Set the geometry of tkinter frame win.geometry("750x350") #Define a function to submit the validate the value of Entry widget def submit_name(): Label(frame, text="Hello "+ entry.get(), font=('Helvetica',12, 'bold')).pack(pady=20) submit.configure(state= "disabled") #Creates a Frame frame = LabelFrame(win, width= 400, height= 180, bd=3) frame.pack() #Create an Entry widget in the Frame for Accepting the Username entry = ttk.Entry(frame, width= 40) entry.insert(INSERT, "Enter Your Name") entry.pack(ipadx= 30, ipady=30) #Set the focus on Entry1 entry.focus_set() #Create a submit button submit= ttk.Button(win, text= "submit",command=submit_name) submit.pack(pady=10) win.mainloop()
Run the above code to display the Entry widget which has some internal padding in it.
In the given output, we will click the "submit" button and it will display the greeting message as the output on the screen.
