Boykin University of Florida, Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering October 22, 2009 EEL 4834: Lecture 23 Outline 1 Events 2 Layout and Appearance EEL 4834: Lecture 23 Events Events Consider the following events: user clicks a mouse button user releases a mouse button user presses a key How do we cause functions to be called when these things happen? EEL 4834: Lecture 23 Events Binding Events Suppose we want to change our previous GUI from: to: Note the equals button is no longer a button, instead we want to run the calculation when the enter (or return) key is pressed. EEL 4834: Lecture 23 Events The Binding Code We change: r entry = Entry(top, width=6, textvariable=r) r entry.pack(side= ’left’ ) s = StringVar() # variable to be attached to s label def comp s(): global s s.set( ’%g’ % math.sin(float(r.get()))) # construct string compute = Button(top, text= ’ equals ’ , command=comp s) to: r entry = Entry(top, width=6, textvariable=r) r entry.pack(side= ’left’ ) s = StringVar() # variable to be attached to s label def comp s(event): global s s.set( ’%g’ % math.sin(float(r.get()))) # construct string r entry.bind( ’ < Return > ’ , comp s) compute = Label(top, text= ’ equals ’ ) Note the callback function comp s takes an argument which is the event that triggered it. EEL 4834: Lecture 23 Events A Second Example: Closing with ‘q’ We could add an event handler for the root window: root = Tk() # root (main) window def quit(event): root.destroy() root.bind( ’ < q > ’ , quit) EEL 4834: Lecture 23 Events Binding In addition to binding keys, we can also bind mouse events:...
