Python Tkinter place() Geometry Manager

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

Python Tkinter place() geometry manager oraganizes the widgets by placing them in a specific position in the parent widget.


The following below is the syntax for this method -

widget.place( place_options )


Below is the list of possible options -

  • anchor - This is the exact spot of the widget that other options refer to: may be N, E, S, W, NE, NW, SE, or SW, compass directions which indicates the corners and sides of the widget; default is NW (the upper left corner of the widget).
  • bordermode - INSIDE (the default) to indicate that other options refer to the parent's inside (and ignoring the parent's border); else OUTSIDE.
  • height, weight - Height and width in pixels.
  • relheight, relwidth - The height and width as a float between 0.0 and 1.0, as a fraction of the height and width of the parent widget.
  • relx, rely - Horizontal and the vertical offset as a float between 0.0 and 1.0 as a fraction of the height and width of the parent widget.
  • x, y - Horizontal and vertical offset in pixels.


Try the following example below -

from Tkinter import *
import tkMessageBox
import Tkinter

top = Tkinter.Tk()

def helloCallBack():
   tkMessageBox.showinfo( "Hello Python", "Hello World")

B = Tkinter.Button(top, text ="Hello", command = helloCallBack)

B.place(bordermode=OUTSIDE, height=100, width=100)


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