UX Widgets:

Classical user interface widgets, ready to be assembled to create more complex widgets. There are multiple UX Widgets such as Label, Button, CheckBox, Image, Slider, Progress Bar, Text Input, Toggle button, Switch.

  • Label: The Label widget is for rendering text. It supports ascii and unicode strings.
  • Button: The Button is a Label with associated actions that are triggered when the button is pressed (or released after a click/touch).
  • CheckBox: CheckBox is a specific two-state button that can be either checked or unchecked.
  • Image: The Image widget is used to display an image.
  • Slider: The Slider widget looks like a scrollbar. It supports horizontal and vertical orientations, min/max values and a default value.
  • Progress Bar: ProgressBar widget is used to visualize the progress of some task.
  • TextInput: The TextInput widget provides a box for editable plain text.
  • Toggle Button: The ToggleButton widget acts like a checkbox. When you touch or click it, the state toggles between ‘normal’ and ‘down’ (as opposed to a Button that is only ‘down’ as long as it is pressed).
  • Switch: The Switch widget is active or inactive, like a mechanical light switch.

Here, we are going to use almost all these UX widgets So that you can understand how to use them in a single code.

Basic Approach:
1) import kivy
2) import kivyApp
3) import window
4) Set minimum version(optional)
5) Create the App class
6) Create the .kv file 
7) Make the run method/ run the App

Implementation of the Approach:
.py file: 


# Program to Show how to use multiple UX widget
# import kivy module   
import kivy 
# base Class of your App inherits from the App class.   
# app:always refers to the instance of your application  
from import App
# this restrict the kivy version i.e 
# below this kivy version you cannot 
# use the app or software 
# Here for providing colour to the background
from kivy.core.window import Window
# Setting the window size
Window.size = (1120, 630)
# Add the App class
class ClassiqueApp(App):
    def build(FloatLayout):
# Run the App
if __name__ == '__main__':

.kv file: 


# .kv file implementation of the App
# Using Grid layout
    cols: 4
    rows: 3
    padding: 10
    # Adding label
        text: "I am a Label"
    # Add Button
        text: "button 1"
    # Add CheckBox
        active: True
    # Add Image
        source: 'html.png'
    # Add Slider
        min: -100
        max: 100
        value: 25
    # Add progress Bar
        min: 50
        max: 100
    # Add TextInput
        text: "Enter the text"
    # Add toggle Button
        text: " Poetry Mode "
    # Add Switch
        active: True
