Sample text

Objective Complete – Mini Debriefing This concludes our discussion on geometry management in Tkinter. In this section you implemented examples of pack, grid, and place geometry managers. You also understood the strength and weaknesses of each geometry manager. You learned that pack is best for a simple side-wise or top-down widget placement. You also saw that the grid manager is best suited for handling complex layouts. You saw examples of the place geometry manager and the reasons why it is rarely used.

This method can be used to hide the widget from the screen. When you use this option, the widget exists in its place but becomes invisible. The hidden widget may be made visible again but any grid options that you had originally assigned to the widget will be lost. grid_remove() method that removes the widget, except that in this case when you make the widget visible again, all its grid options will be restored. For a complete grid() reference, refer to the the The grid manager section in Appendix B, Quick Reference Sheets.
