Python Tkinter | Create different type of lines using Canvas class

In Tkinter, Canvas.create_line() method is used to create lines in any canvas. These lines can only be seen on canvas so first you need to create a Canvas object and later pack it to the main window.


Canvas.create_line(x1, y1, x2, y2, ...., options = ...)

Note: Minimum 4 points are required to create a line, but you can also add multiple points to create different drawings.

Class paramaters –

Data members used:

Member functions used for the given class: create() method

Widgets used: Canvas

Tkinter method used:

Below is the Python code –





# Imports each and every method and class 
# of module tkinter and tkinter.ttk
from tkinter import *
from tkinter.ttk import * 
class GFG:
    def __init__(self, master = None):
        self.master = master
        # Calls create method of class GFG
    def create(self):
        # This creates a object of class canvas
        self.canvas = Canvas(self.master)
        # This creates a line of length 200 (straight horizontal line)
        self.canvas.create_line(15, 25, 200, 25)
        # This creates a lines of 300 (straight vertical dashed line)
        self.canvas.create_line(300, 35, 300, 200, dash = (5, 2))
        # This creates a triangle (triangle can be created by other methods also)
        self.canvas.create_line(55, 85, 155, 85, 105, 180, 55, 85)
        # This pack the canvas to the main window and make it expandable
        self.canvas.pack(fill = BOTH, expand = True)
if __name__ == "__main__":
    # object of class Tk, resposible for creating
    # a tkinter toplevel window
    master = Tk()
    geeks = GFG(master)
    # This sets the title to Lines
    # This sets the geometry and position of window
    # on the screen
    master.geometry("400x250 + 300 + 300")
    # Infnite loop breaks only by interrupt
