The aim of this video is to improve the visual aspects of your GUI.
- [Instructor] Previously, we saw how we can arrange…various labels using the label frame Widget.…Our GUI is being created nicely, so far.…Next, we will improve the visual aspects…of our Widgets by adding a little space around them…so they can breathe.…In this video, we'll look at adding horizontal…and vertical spacing to our labels.…While tk enter might have had a reputation…for creating ugly GUIs,…this has dramatically changed…since version 8.5, which ships…with Python 3.4.x.…
You just have to know how to use the tools…and techniques that are available.…That's what we will do next.…The procedural way of adding spacing around Widgets…is shown first, and then we will use a loop…to achieve the same thing in a much better way.…Our label frame looks a bit tight…as it blends into the main window towards the bottom.…Let's fix this now.…We will modify this line of code…by adding padx=20 and pady=40.…
And now, when we check, we see that our label frame…got some breathing space.…In tk enter, adding space horizontally and vertically…
