Prerequisite: Creating a button in Tkinter

Tkinter is the most commonly used library for developing GUI (Graphical User Interface) in Python. It is a standard Python interface to the Tk GUI toolkit shipped with Python. Python offers multiple options for developing a GUI (Graphical User Interface). Out of all the GUI methods, tkinter is the most commonly used method. It is a standard Python interface to the Tk GUI toolkit shipped with Python. Python with tkinter is the fastest and easiest way to create GUI applications. Creating a GUI using tkinter is an easy task.

Approach:

  • Import the tkinter module 
  • Create the main window 
  • Add a button to the window.
  • Place the button.

The button in the tkinter module can be placed or move to any position in two ways:

  • By using the place() method.
  • And by using the pack() method.

Method 1: Using the place() method

This method is used to place a button at an absolute defined position.

Syntax : button1.place(x=some_value, y=some_value)

Parameters :

  • x : It defines the x-coordinate of the button’s position.
  • y : It defines the y-coordinate of the button’s position.

Below is the implementation of the approach shown above:

Python3




# Importing tkinter module
from tkinter import *       
 
# Creating a tkinter window
root = Tk()
 
# Initialize tkinter window with dimensions 300 x 250            
root.geometry('300x250')    
 
# Creating a Button
btn = Button(root, text = 'Click me !', command = root.destroy)
 
# Set the position of button to coordinate (100, 20)
btn.place(x=100, y=20)
 
root.mainloop()

Output:

Method 2: Using the pack() method

This method is used to place a button at a relative position.

Syntax : button1.pack(side=some_side, padx=some_value, pady=some_value)

Parameters :

  • side : It defines the side where the button will be placed.
  • padx : It defines the padding on x-axis from the defined side.
  • pady : It defines the padding on y-axis from that defines side.

Below is the implementation of the approach shown above:

Python3




# Importing tkinter module
from tkinter import *       
 
# Creating a tkinter window
root = Tk()
 
# Initialize tkinter window with dimensions 300 x 250            
root.geometry('300x250')    
 
# Creating a Button
btn = Button(root, text = 'Click me !', command = root.destroy)
 
# Set a relative position of button
btn.pack(side=RIGHT, padx=15, pady=20)
 
root.mainloop()

Output:
