PYGLET – Maximize the Window

  • Last Updated : 22 Sep, 2020

In this article we will see how we can maximize the window in PYGLET module in python. Pyglet is easy to use but powerful library for developing visually rich GUI applications like games, multimedia etc. A window is a “heavyweight” object occupying operating system resources. Windows may appear as floating regions or can be set to fill an entire screen (fullscreen). We can change the size of the window with the help of manual input although sometime there is a need to maximize the window programmatically.

We can create a window with the help of command given below

 pyglet.window.Window(width, height, title)

In order to create window we use maximize method with the window object

Syntax : window.maximize()

Argument : It takes no argument

Return : It returns None

The behaviour of this method is somewhat dependent on the user’s display setup. On a multi-monitor system, the window may maximize to either a single screen or the entire virtual desktop.

Below is the implementation

# importing pyglet module
import pyglet
import pyglet.window.key
# width of window
width = 500
# height of window
height = 500
# caption i.e title of the window
title = "Geeksforgeeks"
# creating a window
window = pyglet.window.Window(width, height, title)
# text 
text = "GeeksforGeeks"
# creating a label with font = times roman
# font size = 36
# aligning it to the centre
label = pyglet.text.Label(text,
                          font_name ='Times New Roman',
                          font_size = 36,
                          x = window.width//2, y = window.height//2,
                          anchor_x ='center', anchor_y ='center')
# on draw event
def on_draw():
    # clearing the window
    # drawing the label on the window
# key press event    
def on_key_press(symbol, modifier):
    # key "A" get press
    if symbol == pyglet.window.key.A:
        # maximize the window
# start running the application

Output :

When key “A” get pressed window get maximized
