This is the Python program, which uses GridLayout as the root widget. In addition to the main kv file, it loads
box3.kv. There are also 2 application variables. These variables are referenced from the main kv file.
Basic Approach: 1) import kivy 2) import kivyApp 3) import Gridlayout 4) import Builder 5) Set minimum version(optional) 6) Create Layout class 7) Create App class 8) Set up multiple .kv file 9) return Layout/widget/Class(according to requirement) 10) Run an instance of the class
main.py file of the implementation:
The main kv file contains a GridLayout with 3 columns. These 3 Columns contains different AnchorLayouts. These all are defined in the main.kv file.
Now the main.kv file:
Now as shown in the Outputs there are different buttons in each grid to create Buttons
in every grid we are using Different .kv files.
box1.kv file –
box2.kv file –
box3.kv file –
