Revision 3. </p> <p>This recipes tries to solve the problem of bind_all and unbind_all for tkinter.</p> <p>When a callback is registered using bind_all method and later it's unregistered using unbind_all, all the callbacks are deleted for the "all" tag event. This makes difficult to register and unregister only one callback at a time. This recipes tries to solve this problem.</p> <p>Observe the difference between the code below and the recipe. With the code below, when the user clicks nothing happens. But with my recipe it's possible to bind and unbind specific callbacks.</p> <pre class="prettyprint"><code>try: from Tkinter import Tk, Frame except ImportError: from tkinter import Tk, Frame root = Tk() f = Frame(root, width= 300, height=300) f.pack() def callback1(event): print("callback1") def callback2(event): print("callback2") def callback3(event): print("callback3") root.bind_all("&lt;1&gt;", callback1, add="+") f.bind_all("&lt;1&gt;", callback2, add="+") f.bind_all("&lt;1&gt;", callback3, add="+") f.unbind_all("&lt;1&gt;") root.mainloop() </code></pre> Simple multicolumn listbox for tkinter (Python) 2017-05-02T22:27:15-07:00Miguel Martínez López <p style="color: grey"> Python recipe 580794 by <a href="/recipes/users/4189907/">Miguel Martínez López</a> (<a href="/recipes/tags/listbox/">listbox</a>, <a href="/recipes/tags/multicolumn/">multicolumn</a>, <a href="/recipes/tags/table/">table</a>, <a href="/recipes/tags/tkinter/">tkinter</a>). </p> <p>This recipe makes easy to work a treeview widget like a table.</p> <p>It has several options for styling:</p> <ul> <li>heading_anchor</li> <li>heading_font</li> <li>heading_background</li> <li>heading_foreground</li> <li>cell_anchor</li> <li>cell_background</li> <li>cell_foreground</li> <li>cell_font</li> <li>cell_pady</li> <li>height</li> <li>padding</li> <li>adjust_heading_to_content</li> <li>stripped_rows</li> <li>headers</li> <li>selection_background</li> <li>selection_foreground</li> <li>field_background</li> </ul> <p>The "command" parameter is a callback and its called each time a row is selected.</p> Tkinter table (Python) 2017-05-02T21:19:51-07:00Miguel Martínez López <p style="color: grey"> Python recipe 580786 by <a href="/recipes/users/4189907/">Miguel Martínez López</a> (<a href="/recipes/tags/table/">table</a>, <a href="/recipes/tags/tkinter/">tkinter</a>).

Revision 2. </p> <p>I provide an alternative listbox for tkinter.</p> <p>Using this trick you can add horizontal and vertical padding to every item and also a width.</p> Stacked frame for Tkinter (Python) 2017-04-13T18:20:26-07:00Miguel Martínez López <p style="color: grey"> Python recipe 580784 by <a href="/recipes/users/4189907/">Miguel Martínez López</a> (<a href="/recipes/tags/animation/">animation</a>, <a href="/recipes/tags/frame/">frame</a>, <a href="/recipes/tags/stacked/">stacked</a>, <a href="/recipes/tags/tkinter/">tkinter</a>).

Revision 3. </p> <p>This is only a proof of concept.</p> <p>In my first example, PIL is required. I use PIL also to draw the text over the background. I use the place geometry manager to position the entry.</p> <p>In my second example, I use a canvas widget to draw text over image. I also use the canvas to create other widgets over the background.</p> Metro Accordion for Tkinter (Python) 2017-04-11T15:52:23-07:00Miguel Martínez López <p style="color: grey"> Python recipe 580781 by <a href="/recipes/users/4189907/">Miguel Martínez López</a> (<a href="/recipes/tags/accordion/">accordion</a>, <a href="/recipes/tags/metro/">metro</a>, <a href="/recipes/tags/tkinter/">tkinter</a>, <a href="/recipes/tags/widget/">widget</a>).

XBM format is automatically converted to Tk Bitmap. The advantage of Bitmats is the possibility to change the color of the foreground.</li> </ul> <p>I added 6 different styles of spinners with different sizes.</p> <p>I used for the icon generation.</p> <p>For more metro widgets see here:</p> <p><a href="" rel="nofollow"></a></p>
