Python - geometry method in Tkinter

PythonServer Side ProgrammingProgramming

Python has capability to create GUI applications using the Tkinter library. The library provides many methods useful for GUI applications. The geometry method is a fundamental one which decides the size, position and some other attributes of the screen layout we are going to create.

Example - 1

In the below program we create a window of size 22x200 pixels using the geometry method. Then we add a button to it and decide button position in the window using the side and pady options.

Example

from tkinter import *
base = Tk()
base.geometry('200x200')
stud = Button(base, text = 'Tutorialspoint', font =('Courier',14, 'bold'))
stud.pack(side = TOP, pady = 6)
mainloop()

Running the above code gives us the following result:

Example-2

In this example we create a canvas with a clickable link which will enable us to visit a URL. Again we use the geometry method to create the canvas of the required size.

Example

import webbrowser
from tkinter import*
def Uniform_Resource_Locator():
   url=webbrowser.open_new("http://tutorialspoint.com")
main=Tk()
main.geometry("300x250")
stud=Button(main, text="visit Tutorialspoint", font=('Courier',15,'bold'), command=Uniform_Resource_Locator)stud.pack(side = RIGHT, pady = 6)
main.mainloop()

Running the above code gives us the following result
