Python Tkinter Frame


Contents

The Frame widget is very important for the process of grouping and organizing other widgets in a somehow friendly way. It works like a container, which is responsible for arranging the position of other widgets.

It uses rectangular areas in the screen to organize the layout and to provide padding of these widgets. A frame can also be used as a foundation class to implement complex widgets.

Syntax

Here is the simple syntax to create this widget:

w = Frame ( master, option, ... )

Parameters

  • master − This represents the parent window.
  • options − Here is the list of most commonly used options for this widget. These options can be used as key-value pairs separated by commas.
