from tkinter import * from tkinter import ttk

# This will set the geometry to 200x100
root.geometry('200x100')
  
text1 = StringVar()
text2 = StringVar()
  
# These text are used to set initial
# values of Checkbutton to off
text1.set('OFF')
text2.set('OFF')
  
chkbtn1 = ttk.Checkbutton(root, textvariable = text1, variable = text1,
                          offvalue = 'GFG Not Selected',
                          onvalue = 'GFG Selected')
  
chkbtn1.pack(side = TOP, pady = 10)
chkbtn2 = ttk.Checkbutton(root, textvariable = text2, variable = text2,
                          offvalue = 'GFG Average',
                          onvalue = 'GFG Good')
