In the Object-Oriented Programming Paradigm, Inheritance is used for acquiring the properties of the base class and using them in a derived class. Considering the case for a Tkinter application, we can inherit all the properties of a frame defined in a base class such as background color, foreground color, font properties, etc., into a derived class or a frame.
In order to support Inheritance, we have to define a class that contains some basic properties of a frame such as height, width, bg, fg, font, etc.
# Import Tkinter Library from tkinter import * # Create an instance of Tkinter frame win= Tk() # Set the size of the application window win.geometry("700x350") # Create a class to define the frame class NewFrame(Frame): def __init__(self, win): super().__init__() self["height"] = 200 self["width"] = 200 self["bd"] = 10 self["relief"] = RAISED self["bg"] = "#aa11bb" # Create Frame object frame_a= NewFrame(win) frame_b= NewFrame(win) frame_a.grid(row=0, column=0) frame_b.grid(row=0, column=1) win.mainloop()
Running the above code will display a window containing two frames having the same properties of its frame defined in a class.
