# MessageBox Illustration of showinfo() function
from tkinter import *
from tkinter import messagebox
# creating window object
top = Tk()
def Button_1():
                        "Button-1 Pressed")
def Button_2():
                        "Button-2 Pressed")
# size for window
B1 = Button(top, text = "Button-1"
            command = Button_1)   
B2 = Button(top, text = "Button-2"
            command = Button_2)   




By default, the size of the message box is Fix. We can’t change the size of that Message Box. Different Boxes have different sizes. However, we can use Different alternative methods for this purpose

  • Message Widget
  • By Chaging ReadMe File

1. Message Widget
MessageBox library doesn’t provide the functions to change the configuration of the box. We can use the other function. The message can also be used to display the information. The size of the message is the size of the window so that we can set the size of the message by geometry, pack.

from tkinter import *
main = Tk()
# vriable for text
str_var = StringVar()
# Message Function
label = Message( main, textvariable=str_var, 
                relief=RAISED )
# The size of the text determines
# the size of the messagebox
str_var.set("You can't Change Your Profile Picture "



2. By Changing ReadMe File
This is another alternative option of the Message Box. In this, We are Opening the file readme.txt the length of the content of the readme file determines the size of the messagebox.

Input File:


from tkinter import *
from tkinter import messagebox 
top = Tk()
def helpfile(filetype):
    if filetype==1:
        with open("read.txt") as f:
            # reading file
            readme = 
            # Display whole message
                                message = str(readme))
# Driver code
