How can I set the size of a window with tkinter?

Hi

I create a canvas that is to big for the default window-size, so it gets cut
to fit...
How can I increase the window-size to make sure the canvas fits?

regards tores

what default window size? what geometry management approach are
you using?

(if you're using pack or grid, your toplevel window should adapt itself
to the canvas size, unless you're using an obnoxious window manager.
if you do, Tkinter may not be able to do much about that...)

root=Tk()
root.minsize(300,300)
root.geometry("500x500")

will limit the window to be at least 300x300, and set it straight away
to 500x500.
