How To Set Title In Python

In this tutorial, we will learn how to set the title for a window or a program in Python. This can be useful when creating GUI applications or when customizing the appearance of a user interface.

We will be using the Tkinter library, which is the standard Python library for creating lightweight and simple GUI applications. Let’s get started!

Step 1: Import the Tkinter library

First, you need to import the Tkinter library in your Python script. You can do this by simply writing the following line at the beginning of your code:

Step 2: Create a window

After importing the Tkinter library, you can create a window where you want to set the title. You can create a new window using the Tk() class.

Step 3: Set the window title

Now, you can set the title of the window using the title() method on the root object. The title() method accepts a single argument, which is the string you want to use as the title of your window.

Step 4: Create an event loop

In order to keep the window open and to make it responsive, you need to set up an event loop using the mainloop() method on the root object.

A new window with the title "My Python Application" will appear.

Step 5: Modify the title during runtime

If you want to modify the window title during the runtime of the application, you can simply call the title() method again with the new title:

It’s also possible to create a function that changes the title when a certain event occurs, such as pressing a button:
