Text Box : It is used to show and get the text to/from the user, text can be edited using any keyboard input, it takes input in form of string. It displays the title, message to be displayed, place to alter the given text and a pair of “Ok”, “Cancel” button which is used confirm the text. It is similar to enter text but used to show large text and it word-wrap the given text, below is how the enter box looks like 
 

 

In order to do this we will use textbox method
Syntax : textbox(message, title, text)
Argument : It takes 3 arguments, first string i.e message/information to be displayed, second string i.e title of the window and third is string which is the editable text
Return : It returns the altered text and None if cancel is pressed 
 

Example : 
In this we will create a text box with editable text, and will show the specific text on the screen according to the altered text, below is the implementation 
 

Python3




# importing easygui module
from easygui import *
 
# message to be displayed
message = "Below is the text to edit"
 
# window title
title = "Window Title GfG"
 
# long text
text = ["EasyGUI is a module for very simple, very easy GUI ",
"programming in Python. EasyGUI is different from other",
"GUI generators in that EasyGUI is NOT event-driven."]
         
# creating a multi password box
output = textbox(message, title, text)
 
# showing the output
print("Altered Text ")
print("================")
print(output)

Output : 
 

 

Altered Text

Another Example :

Python3




# importing easygui module
from easygui import *
 
# message to be displayed
message = "Below is the text to edit"
 
# window title
title = "Window Title GfG"
 
         
# creating a multi password box
output = textbox(message, title)
 
# showing the output
print("Altered Text ")
print("================")
print(output)
