How To Call Event Handler In Python

As a Python developer, you might be familiar with the concept of Event Handlers. They are functions that can be called in response to certain events, such as mouse clicks or keystrokes. In this tutorial, we’ll explore how to call Event Handlers in Python.


1. First, you need to define the Event Handler function. This function will contain the code you want to be executed when the event occurs.

2. Next, you need to bind the Event Handler function to the event using the Tkinter module. Tkinter is Python’s standard GUI module and comes bundled with most Python installations.

3. To bind the Event Handler to the event, you need to create a widget that generates the event. For example, if you want to call the Event Handler function when a button is clicked, you need to create a button widget.

4. Once you have the widget, you can use the bind method to bind the Event Handler function to the event. Here’s an example of how to bind the function to a button-click event:

In this example, is the code for the left mouse button click event. You can replace it with other codes for different events, such as for a key press event.

5. Finally, you need to start the Tkinter event loop so that the Event Handler can listen for and respond to events. This is done using the mainloop() method. Here’s an example:


In this tutorial, we learned how to call Event Handler functions in Python using the Tkinter module. We saw how to define the function, bind it to the event using a widget, and start the event loop. With this knowledge, you can create interactive GUI applications that respond to user actions.
