Python Tkinter pack() Geometry Widget



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

The Python Tkinter pack() geometry manager arranges widgets in blocks before placing them all in the parent widget.

Syntax

The following below is the syntax for this method -

widget.pack( pack_options )

Options

Below is the list of possible options -

  • expand - when set to true, the widget expands to fill any space not that is not used in widget's parent.
  • fill - Determines whether widget fills any extra space allocated to it by the packer, or preserves its own minimal dimensions.
  • side - Determines which side of the parent widget packs against.


Example

Try the following example below -

from Tkinter import *

root = Tk()
frame = Frame(root)
frame.pack()

bottomframe = Frame(root)
bottomframe.pack( side = BOTTOM )

redbutton = Button(frame, text="Red", fg="red")
redbutton.pack( side = LEFT)

greenbutton = Button(frame, text="green", fg="green")
greenbutton.pack( side = LEFT )

bluebutton = Button(frame, text="Blue", fg="blue")
bluebutton.pack( side = LEFT )

blackbutton = Button(bottomframe, text="Black", fg="black")
blackbutton.pack( side = BOTTOM)

root.mainloop()

Output

When the above code is executed, it will produce the following result -
