Sample text

Directions: "n" (north, or top edge), "ne", (north-east, or top right corner), "e", "se", "s", "sw", "w", "nw" or "center". Labels can be used to display more than one line of text. This can be done by embedding carriage returns ("\n") in the "text"/"textvariable" string. ), by using the "wraplength" option. Multi-line labels are a replacement for the older "message" widgets in classic Tk. You can also control how the text is justified, by using the "justify" option, which can have the values "left", "center" or "right".

The "sticky" option can be used to change this default behavior. The value of the "sticky" option is a string of 0 or more of the compass directions "nsew", specifying which edges of the cell the widget should be "stuck" to. So for example, a value of "n" (north) will jam the widget up against the top side, with any extra vertical space on the bottom; the widget will still be centered horizontally. A value of "nw" (north-west) means the widget will be stuck to the top left corner, with extra space on the bottom and right.

E. each step is 1%). To tell the progressbar how far along you are in the operation, you will repeatedly change the "value" configuration option. So this would start at 0, and then count upwards to the maximum value you have set. There are two slight variations on this. First, you can just store the current value for the progressbar in a variable linked to it by the progressbar's "variable" configuration option; that way, when you change the variable, the progressbar will update. 0). Indeterminate Progress Indeterminate mode is for when you're not able to easily know (or estimate) how far along in a long 54 running task you actually are, but still want to provide feedback to the user that the operation is still running (or that your program hasn't crashed).
