Python | Tkinter ttk.Checkbutton and comparison with simple Checkbutton

Tkinter is a GUI (Graphical User Interface) module which comes along with the Python itself. This module is widely used to create GUI applications. tkinter.ttk is used to create the GUI applications with the effects of modern graphics which cannot be achieved using only tkinter. Checkbutton is used to select multiple options.

# check buttons
java = Checkbutton(root, text ='Java',
                   takefocus = 0).place(x = 40, y = 30)
  
cpp = Checkbutton(root, text ='C++',
                  takefocus = 0).place(x = 40, y = 50)
  
python = Checkbutton(root, text ='Python',
                     takefocus = 0).place(x = 40, y = 70)
  
c = Checkbutton(root, text ='C',
                takefocus = 0).place(x = 40, y = 90)

code

# importing tkinter and ttk
from tkinter import * 
from tkinter import ttk
  
# root
root = Tk()
  
# This will depict the features of Simple Checkbutton
Label(root, text ='Simple Checkbutton').place(x = 10, y = 10)
chkbtn1 = Checkbutton(root, text ='Checkbutton1',
             takefocus = 0).place(x = 10, y = 40)
chkbtn2 = Checkbutton(root, text ='Checkbutton2',
             takefocus = 0).place(x = 10, y = 60)
  
  
# This will depict the features of ttk.Checkbutton
Label(root, text ='ttk.Checkbutton').place(x = 140, y = 10)
chkbtn1 = ttk.Checkbutton(root, text ='Checkbutton1',
                takefocus = 0).place(x = 140, y = 40)
chkbtn2 = ttk.Checkbutton(root, text ='Checkbutton2'
                takefocus = 0).place(x = 140, y = 60)
  
root.mainloop()

Output:

Notice the difference in the appearance of both the Checkbuttons which is all due to the modern graphics. In the above Code when mouse is being hovered over the ttk.Checkbutton you may see a blue color effect (effect may change from os from os). When we hover mouse over Simple Checkbutton you may not experience any such kind of effects.
