Hi,

I have a minor quesion today: can somebody tell me how to change basic style options for buttons using ttk.

I'd like my buttons and entry fields to have rounded corners. I know this is possible but documentation on ttk (for python) seems to be inexistent on the Web. I haven't been able to find a tutorial on ttk widget styles.


Thank you

The only example I could find was this one ...

'''
Python31 includes the Tkinter Tile extension Ttk.
Ttk comes with 17 widgets, 11 of which already exist in Tkinter: 
Button, Checkbutton, Entry, Frame, Label, LabelFrame, Menubutton, 
PanedWindow, Radiobutton, Scale and Scrollbar 
The 6 new widget classes are: 
Combobox, Notebook, Progressbar, Separator, Sizegrip and Treeview

Looks menacingly complex!

Whoan, what are all those letters?


I tested it and it works, I'm also trying to find more information. It seems there is a way to modify particular options if an existing theme.

If you want more advace look dont use tkinter.
Tkinter look ugly under windows(Non-native look-and-feel)

This make me not use tkinter at all,i find wxpyhon som much better an it look good under windows.
Button are rounded in wxpython,or there are easy to make the look you what.
And when you move mouse over button it highlight,this dos not ugly tkinter buttons.

PyQt and PyGTK are also good tool-kit(that dont have native look-and-feel under windows.)

OK, Solved, that's a good example. I also found the map method, which helps you modify things, but it's too complicated.

What snippsat said is not tru for windows anymore. On Linux, though, tkinter looks horribly simple and old, but on Windows, tkinter looks native!! This is unconceivable, but sad and true...
