This is my first experience with Python's Tkinter GUI. I want to write a program where the result of an interim calculation is displayed on a label. Later in the program I want to use this result in another calculation by simply clicking on the label.
This is what I have set up for a test:
from Tkinter import * root = Tk() label1 = Label(root, text='') label1.pack(side=TOP) # do some caculation and format result pi_approx = 355/113.0 str1 = "%.4f" % (pi_approx) # 3.1416 # show result in label text label1.config(text=str1) # more code here mainloop()
I can bind the label to a mouse click, but can't figure out how to retrieve the label's content. Any advice how to do this? There must be some Tk mavens out there.
