Part 1 Basic concepts
If you are interested in Python and Tkinter, you have probably noticed that although there is some good contributed documentation on the Web, there is not enough to get Tkinter applications up and running. Python and Tkinter Programming is the answer. Python and Tkinter Programming presents the elements of typical Python and Tkinter applications in a straight-forward fashion. Sample code illustrates each element. Complete applications that go far beyond the fill-the-form class of graphical user interfaces are presented; here you will find examples of complex controls, drawn interfaces and photorealistic panels. The code can readily be used as templates for new applications. Tkinter is fully documented.
A brief description of TK
Both Tk and tkinter are available on most Unix platforms, as well as on Windows systems. Tk itself is not part of Python; it is maintained at ActiveState., We'll be drawing a lot of parallels with the curses library, which I covered on developerWorks in "Curses programming in Python".
Tkinter is not the only GuiProgramming toolkit for Python. It is however the most commonly used one. CameronLaird calls the yearly decision to keep TkInter "one of the minor traditions of the Python world. The book enables users to develop GUI applications in Python and Tkinter by working on ten real world examples. Now you can master GUI programming in Tkinter as you design, implement,and deliver ten real-world applications from start to finish.
