Python is an object-oriented programming language yet it does not always make sense to use OOP. For simple scripting tasks, the legacy waterfall coding style is still appropriate.
- [Narrator] In the previous video,…we looked at connecting modules.…In this video, we will merge…both procedural and OOP style of coding.…We will create a Python GUI in a procedural way,…and later, we'll add a class to the top of the module.…We will create an OOP style class…that will display a tooltip when we hover the mouse…over a widget in a Python GUI…that we will create using a waterfall style.…Fall-down and waterfall coding styles are the same.…
It means that we have to physically place code above code…before we can call it from the code below.…In this paradigm, the code literally falls down…from the top of our program to the bottom of our program…when we execute the code.…In this video, we will create a GUI using Tkinter,…which is similar to the GUI we created…in the first section of this course.…How to do it.…In Python, we can bind functions to classes…by turning them into methods using the self keyword.…
This is a truly wonderful capability of Python,…and it allows us to create large systems…that are understandable and maintainable.…
