Mouse Position in Python Tkinter
Events are very useful to perform and manage multiple tasks in a large-scale application. We can bind a particular event with the keyboard buttons or mouse buttons using the bind(‘handler’, ‘callback’) method. Generally, the mouse pointer and its motion are tracked for the purpose of building a screensaver, 2D or 3D games. In order to print the coordinates of the pointer, we have to bind the Motion with a callback function that gets the position of the pointer in x and y variables.
#Import tkinter library from tkinter import * #Create an instance of tkinter frame or window win= Tk() #Set the geometry of tkinter frame win.geometry("750x250") def callback(e): x= e.x y= e.y print("Pointer is currently at %d, %d" %(x,y)) win.bind('<Motion>',callback) win.mainloop()
Running the above code will print the actual position of the pointer whenever we hover on the window.
On the console, you will get to see the actual position of the mouse pointer as you hover the mouse on the screen.
