Use the grid.forget() on the frame you want to hide and the .grid() to make the new frame visible. like what you see below.

frame1.grid(row = 0, column = 0)

Thank you very much.

But for a button? If i have 3 buttons, i want second button to be "invisible" and be visible only after i press button 1 ?

same would apply what i posted was just an example of how you could hide and show your buttons. Never tried hiding anything using pack but i tried the grid forget method and it worked.

This might give you a hint ...

''' tk_label_lift_lower.py
hide and show labels sharing the same grid position 
with lift and lower

    # Python2
    import Tkinter as tk
except ImportError:
    # Python3
    import tkinter as tk

def show2():

def show1():

root = tk.Tk()

button1 = tk.Button(root, text="Press to show label2", command=show2)
button1.grid(row=0, column=0, padx=10, pady=5)

button2 = tk.Button(root, text="Press to show label1", command=show1)
button2.grid(row=1, column=0)

# label1 and label2 share the same grid position
label1 = tk.Label(root, text=" now showing label1 ", bg='yellow')
label1.grid(row=2, column=0, pady=5)

label2 = tk.Label(root, text=" now showing label2 ", bg='green')
label2.grid(row=2, column=0, pady=5)

# at start this will put label2 below label1
