  • Toplevel
    This widget is used to make a pop-up like effect. It creates another window. It can be used to represent some extra info. This window is managed internally by the system. (Window manager in Windows)

    In this program, clicking on the open buttons activates the Toplevel widgets and creates another blank window.

Closing the main application window closes all windows.

  • spinbox
    Spinbox is a less attractive version of the slider widget. Again, It is useful over the Entry widget when the user is forced to select only one value from the given range of values.

    We can also type in the spinbox.

  • panelWindow
    The PanedWindow widget is a resizable frame widget. It contains one or more child widgets arranged horizontally or vertically. Unlike the frame widget, child widgets can be resized by the user, by moving the separator lines. These separator lines are called as sashes.
