Widgets such as buttons, labels, and user-entry fields for input form the core of any GUI. Tkinter includes button, entry, and label objects and geometry managers in Tkinter allow you to choose how to position your widgets. You will begin this course by creating an interactive button widget which displays an exit prompt when clicked. Discover how to instantiate text entry widgets where users enter text input to a box. Set up an app where the user enters obscured password credentials into a text entry widget and submits them using a button widget. Finally, explore the grid, pack, and place geometry managers in Tkinter. Upon completion of this course, you will be able to configure interactive widgets in Tkinter and choose between place, pack, and grid geometry managers to optimize app layout.
