You have completed your first objective, which was to draw the root window. You have now prepared your drawing canvas (root window). Now get ready to paint it with your imagination! py) to memory. These three lines generate your root window, which will accommodate all other graphical components. These lines constitute the skeleton of any GUI application that you will develop in Tkinter.

This requires associating callbacks to specific events. Engage Thrusters Callbacks are normally associated with specific widget events using the command binding the rules, which is elaborated on in the following section. Command binding The simplest way to add functionality to a button is called command binding, whereby the callback function is mentioned in the form of command = some_callback in the widget option. Take a look at the following sample code: def my_callback (): # do something Button(root,text="Click",command= my_callback) Note that my_callback is called without parentheses () from within the widget command option.
