  • Last Updated : 24 Jan, 2021

In this article, we will learn How to get the size of a PyGame Window. 

Game programming is very rewarding nowadays and it can also be used in advertising and as a teaching tool too. Game development includes mathematics, logic, physics, AI, and much more and it can be amazingly fun. In python, game programming is done in pygame and it is one of the best modules for doing so.

Installation:

This library can be installed using the below command:

pip install pygame 

Step-by-step Approach:



  1. Import pygame.
  2. Initialize pygame.
  3. Form a screen by using pygame.display.set_mode() method.
  4. Get size of formed screen by using screen.get_size() method.
  5. Quit pygame.

Below are some examples based on the above approach:

Example 1:

Python3

filter_none

edit
close

play_arrow

link
brightness_4
code

# import package pygame
import pygame
  
# initilize pygame
pygame.init()
  
# Form screen
screen = pygame.display.set_mode()
  
# get the default size
x, y = screen.get_size()
  
# quit pygame
pygame.display.quit()
  
# view size (width x height)
print(x, y)
