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. Join Barron Stone in this course as he walks 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. The final chapter takes you through the entire start-to-finish process of building the user interface for an application, so you can see how all of these techniques work in a real-world development scenario.
(jaunty bell tune) Hi, I'm Barron Stone, and welcome to Python GUI development with Tkinter. In this course, you'll see how to build a functional and professional looking graphical user interface for your Python applications. Tkinter is the de facto module for Python GUI development, and comes included with the standard Python distributions. It provides an interface to the Tk GUI toolkit, which is available for most operating systems. And includes themed GUI elements, that maintains a consistent look and feel with those operating systems.
This course, will introduce you to the most commonly used Tk widgets, and it will teach you how to create and configure them with a customized appearance and behavior. I'll show you the three different ways to manage the placement of those widgets on your GUI. And understand when it's appropriate to use each of those methods. And finally, a graphical user interface isn't very useful if it doesn't react to a user's actions. So we'll take a look at how to use event-driven programming in Tk to execute the appropriate code when user actions or events occur.
Tkinter lets you put the days of writing command line interfaces for your Python applications behind you, once and for all. Let's jump in to Python GUI development with Tkinter.
