Python GUI Development with Tkinter Training

Put an end to writing command-line interfaces for your programs. Use Tkinter, the Python package for creating themed interface elements with the Tk GUI toolkit. The trainer will walk through the most popular Tk widgets and shows you how to customize their appearance and behavior to fit your application. You'll learn how to manage the placement of those widgets on the GUI and make them react to user behavior with event-driven code.

Topics include:

  • Installing Python 3 and Tcl/Tk for Mac or Windows
  • Creating and configuring themed Tk widgets
  • Decorating the GUI with text labels and images
  • Capturing input from buttons, menus, and entry fields
  • Presenting choices with check boxes and radio buttons
  • Using geometry managers to lay out the GUI
  • Organizing widgets inside of frames and windows
  • Handling user actions with event-driven programming
  • Creating a simple drawing tool with the Canvas
  • Prompting users with pop-up dialog boxes
