Python Tkinter - 17 - Text Widget Explained

We have often been asked: “Is there no Tk for Python?” or “Is Tkinter the same as Tk?” Of course, there is Tk for Python. Without Tk Python would be less attractive to many users. Tk is called Tkinter in Python, or to be precise, Tkinter is the Python interface for Tk. Tkinter is an acronym for “Tk interface”.

Tk was developed as a GUI extension for the Tcl scripting language by John Ousterhout. The first release was in 1991. Tk proved as extremely successful in the 1990’s, because it is easier to learn and to use than other toolkits. So it is no wonder that many programmers wanted to use Tk independently of Tcl. That’s why bindings for lots of other programming languages have been developed, including Perl, Ada (called TASH), Python (called Tkinter), Ruby, and Common Lisp.

Tk provides the following widgets:

  • button
  • canvas
  • checkbutton
  • combobox
  • entry
  • frame
  • label
  • labelframe
  • listbox
  • menu
  • menubutton
  • message
  • notebook
  • tk_optionMenu
  • panedwindow
  • progressbar
  • radiobutton
  • scale
  • scrollbar
  • separator
  • sizegrip
  • spinbox
  • text
  • treeview

It provides the following top-level windows:

  • tk_chooseColor - pops up a dialog box for the user to select a color.
  • tk_chooseDirectory - pops up a dialog box for the user to select a directory.
  • tk_dialog - creates a modal dialog and waits for a response.
  • tk_getOpenFile - pops up a dialog box for the user to select a file to open.
  • tk_getSaveFile - pops up a dialog box for the user to select a file to save.
  • tk_messageBox - pops up a message window and waits for a user response.
  • tk_popup - posts a popup menu.
  • toplevel - creates and manipulates toplevel widgets.

Tk also provides three geometry managers:

  • place - which positions widgets at absolute locations
  • grid - which arranges widgets in a grid
  • pack - which packs widgets into a cavity

Lambda, Map, Filter functions in python

Welcome to my Blog, In this article, we will learn python lambda function, Map function, and filter function.

Lambda function in python: Lambda is a one line anonymous function and lambda takes any number of arguments but can only have one expression and python lambda syntax is

Syntax: x = lambda arguments : expression

Now i will show you some python lambda function examples:

Convert Text to Speech in Python

Learn how to convert your Text into Voice with Python and Google APIs

Text to speech is a process to convert any text into voice. Text to speech project takes words on digital devices and convert them into audio with a button click or finger touch. Text to speech python project is very helpful for people who are struggling with reading.

Project Prerequisites

To implement this project, we will use the basic concepts of Python, Tkinter, gTTS, and playsound libraries.

  • Tkinter is a standard GUI Python library that is one of the fastest and easiest ways to build GUI applications using Tkinter.
  • gTTS (Google Text-to-Speech) is a Python library, which is a very easy library that converts the text into audio.
  • The playsound module is used to play audio files. With this module, we can play a sound file with a single line of code.

To install the required libraries, you can use pip install command:

pip install tkinter
pip install gTTS
pip install playsound

Download Python Text to Speech Project Code

Please download the source code of Text to Speech Project: Python Text to Speech

Text to Speech Python Project

The objective of this project is to convert the text into voice with the click of a button. This project will be developed using Tkinter, gTTs, and playsound library.

In this project, we add a message which we want to convert into voice and click on play button to play the voice of that text message.

  • Importing the modules
  • Create the display window
  • Define functions

So these are the basic steps that we will do in this Python project. Let’s start.

Python Tricks Every Developer Should Know

Python is awesome, it’s one of the easiest languages with simple and intuitive syntax but wait, have you ever thought that there might ways to write your python code simpler?

In this tutorial, you’re going to learn a variety of Python tricks that you can use to write your Python code in a more readable and efficient way like a pro.

Let’s get started

Swapping value in Python

Instead of creating a temporary variable to hold the value of the one while swapping, you can do this instead

>>> FirstName = "kalebu"
>>> LastName = "Jordan"
>>> FirstName, LastName = LastName, FirstName 
>>> print(FirstName, LastName)
('Jordan', 'kalebu')

How to Remove all Duplicate Files on your Drive via Python

Today you’re going to learn how to use Python programming in a way that can ultimately save a lot of space on your drive by removing all the duplicates.


In many situations you may find yourself having duplicates files on your disk and but when it comes to tracking and checking them manually it can tedious.

Heres a solution

Instead of tracking throughout your disk to see if there is a duplicate, you can automate the process using coding, by writing a program to recursively track through the disk and remove all the found duplicates and that’s what this article is about.

But How do we do it?

If we were to read the whole file and then compare it to the rest of the files recursively through the given directory it will take a very long time, then how do we do it?

The answer is hashing, with hashing can generate a given string of letters and numbers which act as the identity of a given file and if we find any other file with the same identity we gonna delete it.

There’s a variety of hashing algorithms out there such as

  • md5
  • sha1
  • sha224, sha256, sha384 and sha512
