Here is a code fragment showing the creation of a canvas
with horizontal and vertical scrollbars. In this
self is assumed to be a
self.canv = tk.Canvas(self, width=600, height=400, scrollregion=(0, 0, 1200, 800)) self.canv.grid(row=0, column=0) self.scrollY = tk.Scrollbar(self, orient=tk.VERTICAL, command=self.canv.yview) self.scrollY.grid(row=0, column=1, sticky=tk.N+tk.S) self.scrollX = tk.Scrollbar(self, orient=tk.HORIZONTAL, command=self.canv.xview) self.scrollX.grid(row=1, column=0, sticky=tk.E+tk.W) self.canv['xscrollcommand'] = self.scrollX.set self.canv['yscrollcommand'] = self.scrollY.set
The connection goes both ways. The canvas's
xscrollcommand option has to be connected to
the horizontal scrollbar's
method, and the scrollbar's
option has to be connected to the canvas's
.xview method. The vertical scrollbar and
canvas must have the same mutual connection.
sticky options on the
calls for the scrollbars force them to stretch just
enough to fit the corresponding dimension of the
