Menus offer a very compact way of presenting a large number of choices to the user without cluttering the interface. Tkinter offers the following two widgets to handle menus:
- Menu widget: This appears at the top of applications, which is always visible to end users
- Menu items: These show up when a user clicks on a menu
We will use the following code to add Toplevel menu buttons:
my_menu = Menu(parent, **options)
For example, to add a File menu, we will use the following code:
# Adding Menubar in the widgetmenu_bar = Menu(root)file_menu = Menu(menu_bar, tearoff=0)# all file menu-items will be added here nextmenu_bar.add_cascade(label='File', menu=file_menu)root.config(menu=menu_bar)
