saving a tkinter canvas

Newbie. Playing with the 'turtle' module and wondering if there's a way to save
the graphics you make with it. The documentation itself has nothing to say about
this, nor (as far as I can tell) does the FAQ list at python-dot-org. Any
pointers would be very much appreciated.

(In related news, I would also like to find out what's going on with "bounding
boxes" in image files - not having them is keeping me from including images in
latex files.)

You can save Tkinter.Canvase s as PostScript using the
Tkinter.Canvas. postscript() method.
import Tkinter
root = Tkinter.Tk()
canvas = Tkinter.Canvas( root)
rect = canvas.create_r ectangle(10,10, 100,100, fill="blue")
retval = canvas.postscri pt(file="saved. ps", height=100, width=100, colormode="colo r")

New to Tkinter. Initially, I had some code that was executing button commands at creation, rather than waiting for user action. Some research here gave me a solution, but I am not sure why the extra step is necessary. This causes the "graph" function to execute when the button is created: Button(root, text='OK', command=graph(canvas))) However, this waits until the button is pressed (the desired behavior): def doit(): graph(canvas)

Please take a look at and run the code snippet shown below. It creates a canvas with vertical & Horizontal scroll-bars. If you shrink the window to smaller than the area of the canvas, the scroll-bars work as advertised. That's great. However, if you click the Left Mouse button, it calls code which expands the width of the canvas by 100 pixels. The area being viewed expands correspondingly..... BUT I DON'T WANT IT TO!!

Below is a simple code snippet showing a Tkinter Window bearing a canvas and 2 connected scrollbars (Vertical & Horizontal). Works fine. When you shrink/resize the window the scrollbars adjust accordingly. However, what I really want to happen is that the area of the canvas that the scrollbars show (the Scrollregion) should expand as the window grows. It doesn't currently do this. although, if the window shrinks smaller than the...

mapq = PhotoImage(file = 'C:\Users\saftarn\Desktop\elmapovic.gif') w.create_image(10, 10, image = mapq, anchor = NW) after doing this is there any possibility of getting the characteristics of the GIF-picture(or bitmap if i use that)? it would be very helpfull if i for example could do something like canvas.getcolor(image, mouseclick.x,mouseclick.y) if u get the point. get the color of the image where i clicked.

Tkinter makes it very easy to drag jpeg images around on a canvas, but I would like to have a "target" change color when the cursor dragging an image passes over it. I seem to be blocked by the fact that the callbacks that might tell the target that the mouse has entered it (<Enter>, <Any-Enter>, even <Motion>) aren't called if the mouse's button is down. What am I missing? Have I failed to find the right Tkinter document? Is Tkinter...

I hate to do this, but I've thoroughly exhausted google search. Yes, it's that pesky root window and I have tried withdraw to no avail. I'm assuming this is because of the methods I'm using. I guess my question is two-fold. 1) How do I get rid of that window? 2) Any comments in general? I am just learning python (and coding with classes), so I'm sure there are things I should pound into my head before I learn bad habits. Here's the...

Hello folks, I am unable to find appropriate documentation on the type promotion of bit-fields when using the generalised comparison operator "<=>". The problem is that using the GNU compilers, it seems that the internal comparison operator "<=>" tries to promote arguments from unsigned to signed. This is as boiled down as I can make it. Here is my compilation command: g++-12 -std=c++20 -Wnarrowing bit_field.cpp Here is the code in...

Overview: Windows 11 and 10 have less user interface control over operating system update behaviour than previous versions of Windows. In Windows 11 and 10, there is no way to turn off the Windows Update option using the Control Panel or Settings app; it automatically checks for updates and installs any it finds, whether you like it or not. For most users, this new feature is actually very convenient. If you want to control the update process,...

Hello I'm a network technician in training and I need your help. I am currently learning how to create and manage the different types of VPNs and I have a question about LAN-to-LAN VPNs.

But I'm wondering if it's possible to do the same thing, with 2 Pfsense firewalls...
