Prerequisite: Python GUI – tkinter

Python offers multiple options for developing 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.

A bitmap is an array of binary data representing the values of pixels in an image. A GIF is an example of a graphics image file that has a bitmap.

To create a bitmap image ‘bitmap’ attribute of the button() function is used display. It can take the following values:

  • error
  • gray75
  • gray50
  • gray25
  • gray12
  • hourglass
  • info
  • questhead
  • question
  • warning

Syntax:

Button(…, bitmap=”<value>”)

Approach 1:

  • Import module
  • Create object
  • Create buttons 
  • Execute code

Program:

Python3




# Import Module
from tkinter import *
  
# Create Objects
root = Tk()
  
# Buttons
Button(root, relief=RAISED, bitmap="error").pack(pady=10)
Button(root, relief=RAISED, bitmap="hourglass").pack(pady=10)
Button(root, relief=RAISED, bitmap="info").pack(pady=10)
Button(root, relief=RAISED, bitmap="question").pack(pady=10)
Button(root, relief=RAISED, bitmap="warning").pack(pady=10)
Button(root, relief=RAISED, bitmap="gray75").pack(pady=10)
Button(root, relief=RAISED, bitmap="gray50").pack(pady=10)
Button(root, relief=RAISED, bitmap="gray25").pack(pady=10)
Button(root, relief=RAISED, bitmap="gray12").pack(pady=10)
Button(root, relief=RAISED, bitmap="questhead").pack(pady=10)
  
# Execute Tkinter
root.mainloop()

Output:

Approach 2:

In this method, we will create a list of bitmaps and iterate through all bitmaps while passing them to button() function.

  • Import module
  • Create object
  • Create bitmap list
  • Iterate through the list
  • Create buttons while iterating
  • Execute code

Program:

Python3




# Import Module
from tkinter import *
  
# Create Objects
root = Tk()
  
# Create Bitmaps List
bitmaps = ["error",
           "gray75",
           "gray50",
           "gray25",
           "gray12",
           "hourglass",
           "info",
           "questhead",
           "question",
           "warning"]
  
# Iterate through all bitmap list
for bit in bitmaps:
    Button(root, relief=RAISED, bitmap=bit).pack(pady=10)
  
# Execute Tkinter
root.mainloop()

Output:
