Scrollbars are useful to provide dynamic behavior in an application. In a Tkinter application, we can create Vertical as well as Horizontal Scrollbars. Scrollbars are created by initializing the object of Scrollbar() widget.
To create a horizontal scrollbar, we have to provide the orientation, i.e., "horizontal" or "vertical". Scrollbars can be accessible once we configure the particular widget with the scrollbars.
#Import the required libraries from tkinter import * #Create an instance of Tkinter Frame win = Tk() #Set the geometry of Tkinter Frame win.geometry("700x350") #Create some dummy Text text_v = "Python is dynamically-typed and garbage-collected. It supports multiple programming paradigms, including structured (particularly, procedural), object-oriented and functional programming." text_h = ("\nNASA \n Google \nNokia \nFacebook \n Netflix \n Expedia \n Reddit \n Quora \n MIT\n Udemy \n Shutterstock \nSpotify\nAmazon\nMozilla\nDropbox") #Add a Vertical Scrollbar scroll_v = Scrollbar(win) scroll_v.pack(side= RIGHT,fill="y") #Add a Horizontal Scrollbar scroll_h = Scrollbar(win, orient= HORIZONTAL) scroll_h.pack(side= BOTTOM, fill= "x") #Add a Text widget text = Text(win, height= 500, width= 350, yscrollcommand= scroll_v.set, xscrollcommand = scroll_h.set, wrap= NONE, font= ('Helvetica 15')) text.pack(fill = BOTH, expand=0) text.insert(END, text_v) text.insert(END, text_h) #Attact the scrollbar with the text widget scroll_h.config(command = text.xview) scroll_v.config(command = text.yview) win.mainloop()
Running the above code will display a window containing context about Python Programming language. The context can be dynamically viewed using horizontal and vertical scrollbars.
