Python – Spell Corrector GUI using Tkinter

Prerequisites : Introduction to tkinter | spell checking

Python offers multiple options for developing a GUI (Graphical User Interface). Out of all the GUI methods, tkinter is the most commonly used method. Python with tkinter outputs the fastest and easiest way to create GUI applications. In this article, we will learn how to create a GUI Spell Corrector application using Tkinter, with a step-by-step guide.

To create a tkinter :

  • Importing the module – tkinter
  • Create the main window (container)
  • Add any number of widgets to the main window.
  • Apply the event Trigger on the widgets.

Let’s create a GUI based Spell Corrector application that can correct the word given by the user.

Below is the implementation :





# import all functions / classes from the tkinter  
from tkinter import * from textblob import TextBlob
# Function to clear both the text entry boxes
def clearAll() :
    # whole content of text entry area  is deleted 
    word1_field.delete(0, END)
    word2_field.delete(0, END)
# Function to get a corrected word
def correction() :
    # get a content from entry box
    input_word = word1_field.get()
    # create a TextBlob object
    blob_obj = TextBlob(input_word)
    # get a corrected word
    corrected_word = str(blob_obj.correct())
    # insert method inserting the  
    # value in the text entry box.
    word2_field.insert(10, corrected_word)
# Driver code 
if __name__ == "__main__"
    # Create a GUI window 
    root = Tk()
    # Set the background colour of GUI window  
    root.configure(background = 'light green')  
    # Set the configuration of GUI window (WidthxHeight) 
    # set the name of tkinter GUI window  
    root.title("Spell Corrector")
    # Create Welcome to Spell Corrector Application: label  
    headlabel = Label(root, text = 'Welcome to Spell Corrector Application',  
                      fg = 'black', bg = "red")  
    # Create a "Input Word": label  
    label1 = Label(root, text = "Input Word"
                 fg = 'black', bg = 'dark green'
    # Create a "Corrected Word": label  
    label2 = Label(root, text = "Corrected Word",  
                   fg = 'black', bg = 'dark green')  
    # grid method is used for placing  
    # the widgets at respective positions  
    # in table like structure .
    # padx keyword argument used to set paading along x-axis .
    headlabel.grid(row = 0, column = 1)  
    label1.grid(row = 1, column = 0)  
    label2.grid(row = 3, column = 0, padx = 10
    # Create a text entry box  
    # for filling or typing the information.  
    word1_field = Entry() 
    word2_field = Entry()
    # padx keyword argument used to set paading along x-axis .
    # pady keyword argument used to set paading along y-axis .  
    word1_field.grid(row = 1, column = 1, padx = 10, pady = 10)  
    word2_field.grid(row = 3, column = 1, padx = 10, pady = 10
    # Create a Correction Button and attached  
    # with correction function  
    button1 = Button(root, text = "Correction", bg = "red", fg = "black"
                                command = correction) 
    button1.grid(row = 2, column = 1
    # Create a Clear Button and attached  
    # with clearAll function  
    button2 = Button(root, text = "Clear", bg = "red",  
                     fg = "black", command = clearAll)
    button2.grid(row = 4, column = 1
    # Start the GUI
