Tkinter have a listbox list with checkbox and icon

Postby tbaror » Thu Jul 25, 2013 7:54 pm

Hello All,
I am trying to create a listbox using tkinter but the list should be with checkbox each item and icon at the head of selection.

Any idea how to add such attribute

Please advice
Thanks

Code: Select all
from tkinter import *
import tkMessageBox
import Tkinter

top = Tk()

Lb1 = Listbox(top)
Lb1.insert(1, "item 1")
Lb1.insert(2, "item 2")
Lb1.insert(3, "item 3")
Lb1.insert(4, "item 4")
Lb1.insert(5, "item 5")
Lb1.insert(6, "item 6")

Lb1.pack()
top.mainloop()

this makes no sense, at least to me. You must at least know enough english to communicate properly.

tkinter is python3.x, Tkinter is python2.x. You are going to get an error either way by the first few lines.
Code: Select all
from tkinter import *
import tkMessageBox
import Tkinter as tk


tkMessageBox is python2.x and in 3.x is tkinter.messagebox

Tkinter only has a limited set of widgets available , it might not be able to do what you want.
You might have to go for one of the bigger python gui frameworks that has more widgets available by default.

oh after reading that a few times i think i get what he means. an image on the left with a check button on the right inside of each indexes of a listbox?

Yeah i dont think tkinter has any way to do that by default at least. You could of course create your own widgets. Make a rectangle, color change by mouse over rectangle, clickable, with an image on he left, and a checkbutton to the right, and text where ever you want it.
