When more and more features are added to your GUI, the complexity increases and your original nice design can easily be ruined. Learn how to tackle such issues.
- [Instructor] Hey there, last time,…we saw how to use design patterns.…This is the final video in which we will extend our…Pyhton GUI and learn ways to handle the ever increasing…complexity of our software development efforts.…We will create a new Python GUI,…similar to those in previous videos,…and we'll add many features to it in the form of widgets.…We'll see how to handle the complexity that arises…due to this, by modularizing our GUI,…and breaking large features into smaller pieces,…and arranging them in functionally related areas using tabs.…
Our coworkers and clients love the GUIs we create in Python.…And ask for more and more features to add to our GUI.…This increases the complexity.…It could easily ruin our original, nice design.…The file we're working on this time is GUI_Compexity.py.…We will start with a Python GUI that…has two tabs and looks like this.…The first new feature request we receive…is to add functionality to Tab 1…which clears the scroll text widget.…
Easy enough, we just add another button to Tab 1.…
