Python Tkinter Dimensions(Setting Width and Height)



Hello dear readers! welcome back to another section of my tutorial on Python. In this tutorial post, we are going to be discussing about Python Tkinter Dimensions.

Various lengths, widths and so many other dimensions of widgets can be described in many different units -

  • If you set a dimension to an integer, it is assumed to be in pixels.
  • You can specify the units by setting a dimension to a string containing a number followed by -

Sr.No.Character & Description
1
c
Centimeters
2
i
Inches
3
m
Millimeters
4
p
Printer's points (about 1/72")


Legnth Options

The Python Tkinter expresses legnth as an integer number of pixels. Here is the list of common legnth options -

  • borderwidth - Width of the border which gives a 3D look to the widget.
  • highlightthickness - Width of the highlight rectangle when the widget is focus.
  • padX padY - Extra space the widget requests from its layout manager beyond the minimum that the widget needs to display its contents in the x and y directions.
  • selectborderwidth - Width of the 3D border around the selected items of the widget.
  • wraplength - Maximum line length for the widgets that carry out word wrapping.
  • height - Desired height of the widget, must be greater than or equal to 1.
  • underline - Index of the character to underline in the widget's text.
  • width - Desired width of the widget.
