yawTtk 1.0.3

yawTtk is a Python wrapper for Tile. It provides classes which allow the display, positioning and control of native look'n feel widgets.

TtkWidget class is the core of the yawTtk package. It loads Tile and override configure function to manage both widget options and style options.

Extend

A yawTtk widget extends TtkWidget and can be configured mostly as a Tkinter widget if its extend option is True. There are two ways to disable this feature :

>>> # for all widgets
>>> customize_all_widgets(False)
>>> # or
>>> # for a single widget on its creation
>>> button = Button(extend = False, text = "Simple button")

Configure

In Tile, widget options and style are separated. yawTtk merges them to simplify and match as possible Tkinter way of coding. Remember that it is only available if extend option is True. configure funcion is called by __init__ and __setattr__ class method so there are 3 different ways to configure widgets.

>>> # configure widget with __init__ function
>>> button = Button(
... style = "custom.Toolbutton",
... anchor = "center",
... font = ("Tahoma", "8", "bold"),
... )
>>> # or with __setattr__ function
>>> button["foreground"] = "steelblue3"
>>> button["background"] = "lightgreen"
>>> # or even with configure function
>>> button.configure(
... command = exit,
... text = "Toolbutton",
... padding = (5, 1, 5, 1)
... )
>>> # pack and see...
>>> button.pack(fill = "x", padx = 5, pady = 5)

In this example, widget style is explicitly defined. If it is not, yawTtk gives one according to widget type and name. Next example shows different possibilities of style determination by yawTtk. Notice that name option is not necessary because of automatic naming in Tkinter.

>>> b1 = Button(extend = False, text = "Button 1", name = "button001")
>>> # style widget is "TButton"
>>> b2 = Button(extend = False, text = "Button 2", name = "button002", style = "custom.TButton")
>>> # style widget is "custom.TButton"
>>> b3 = Button(extend = True, text = "Button 3", name = "button003")
>>> # style widget is "button003.TButton"
>>> b4 = Button(extend = True, text = "Button 4", name = "button004", style = "TButton")
>>> # style widget is "TButton"
  • b1 and b2 can only be configured with ttk::style configure command
  • b3 and b4 can configure themselves with __setattr__ and configure functions
  • b1 and b4 are default button i.e. modifications affect all buttons

Limitations

There are many themes defined in tile (or Tk 8.5). The winnative and xpnative ones do not allow modification for all widget options. Just see the example below :

>>> # other way to configure widget is to give a dictionary...
>>> cnf = dict(
... # relief is not supported in "xpnative" and "winnative" theme
... relief = "solid",
... # options supported by all theme
... anchor = "center",
... font = ("Tahoma", "8", "bold"),
... foreground = "steelblue3",
... background = "lightgreen",
... command = exit,
... text = "Flat button",
... padding = (5, 1, 5, 1)
... )

For each theme fo Tile :

>>> Button(None, cnf).pack(fill = "x", padx = 5, pady = 5)
