Simple Tuple Fonts
There may be up to three methods to state type style. As a tuple whose primary element is the font family, followed by a dimension in points, optionally followed by a cord-containing one or additional of the style modifiers bold, italic, underline and overstrike.
- ("Helvetica", "16") for a 16-point Helvetica regular.
- ("Times", "24", "bold italic") for a 24-point Times bold italic.
Font object Fonts
You can create a "font object" by importing the tkFont module and using its Font class constructor:
font = tkFont.Font ( option, ... )
Here is the list of options −
family − The font family name as a string.
size − The font height as an integer in points. To get a font n pixels high, use -n.
weight − "bold" for boldface, "normal" for regular weight.
slant − "italic" for italic, "roman" for unslanted.
underline − 1 for underlined text, 0 for normal.
overstrike − 1 for overstruck text, 0 for normal.
helv36 = tkFont.Font(family="Helvetica",size=36,weight="bold")
X Window Fonts
If you are running under the X Window System, you can use any of the X font names.
For example, the font named "-*-lucidatypewriter-medium-r-*-*-*-140-*-*-*-*-*-*" is the author's favorite fixed-width font for onscreen use. Use the xfontsel program to help you select pleasing fonts.
