Although Python comes built-in with object-oriented programming capabilities, for some tasks, OOP does not make sense.
- In the previous video we saw…how to mix Falldown and OOP code.…This video will show you when not to use OOP.…We will create a Python GUI, similar to previous videos.…Then we will compare the OOP code…to the non-OOP alternative way of programming.…Python comes built in with…object oriented programming capabilities,…but at the same time we can write scripts…that do not need to use OOP.…
For some tasks OOP does not make sense.…Let's first create a new GUI, using OOP methodolgy.…This code, GUI_OOP.py, will create the GUI using OOP.…We can achieve the same GUI, without using an OOP approach,…by restructuring our code, slightly.…First we remove the OOP class and it's init method.…
Next we move all methods to the left…and remove the self class reference,…which turns them into unbound functions.…We also remove any other self references…our previous code had.…So, I've already done all of this.…I've already done all of this…in a file called GUI_Not_OOP.py.…
The refactored code is shown here.…We also have to move the createwidgets function call…
