The aim of this video is to use Tkinter built-in dialog widgets to copy files from your local hard drive to a network location.
- [Instructor] In the previous video,…we looked at how to pass queues among different modules.…This video shows us how to copy files to your network.…We will use one of Python's TkInter built-in…dialog widgets to copy files from our…local hard drive to a network location.…As most of us are not connected to the…same local area network, we simulate the copying,…by backing up our code to a different local folder.…This video also shows us how to…make Entry widgets read-only,…and to default our entry to a specified location…which speeds up the browsing of our hard drive.…
We will extend tab two of the GUI…we have been building in the previous videos.…How to do it?…We'll add a code to our GUI…in the createwidgets method,…towards the bottom where we created…tab control two, just above the menu bar.…The parent of the new widget frame is tab two,…which we've created at the very beginning…of the createwidgets method.…As long as you place the code shown…physically below the creation of tab two, it will work.…
When you run this code, it will add two buttons,…
