Text Input box with a verification button in kivy (using .kv file)
Kivy is a platform-independent GUI tool in Python. As it can be run on Android, IOS, linux and Windows etc. It is basically used to develop the Android application, but it does not mean that it can not be used on Desktops applications.
In this article we will learn how we can add a button with the Text input in kivy using .kv file in python just like the same we have in the input and submit button. So to make this you firstly must know about Textinput widget and Button in kivy.
TextInput: The TextInput widget provides a box for editable plain text. Unicode, multiline, cursor navigation, selection and clipboard features are supported.
Button: The Button is a Label with associated actions that are triggered when the button is pressed (or released after a click/touch). We can add functions behind the button and style the button.
Basic Approach - 1) import kivy 2) import kivyApp 3) import widget 4) import Boxlayout 5) import textinput and Button 6) Set minimum version(optional) 7) Create Widget class 8) Create App class 9) create .kv file (name same as the app class): 1) create textinput 2) create Button 10) return Layout/widget/Class(according to requirement) 11) Run an instance of the class
