Builder class offers you the opportunity to design user interfaces without writing a single line of code. This is possible through describing the interface by tjtorial XML file and then loading the XML description at runtime and create the objects automatically, which the Builder class does for you.

There is still code required for handling interface changes triggered by the user, but Gtk. Builder allows you to focus on implementing that functionality. First of all you have to download and install Glade. There are several tutorials about Glade, so this is not explained here in detail. The resulting XML file should look like this. To load this file in Python we need a Gtk.


It is also possible to load only some of the objects.

The following line would add only the objects and their child objects given in the tuple. These two methods exist also for loading from a string rather than a file.

Their corresponding names are Gtk. Now that the tktorial and the button are loaded we also want to show them. But how do we access the associated object? Every widget can be retrieved from the builder by the Gtk.

It is really that simple. Glade also makes it possible to define signals which you can connect to handlers in your code without extracting every object from the builder and connecting to the signals manually. The first thing to do is to declare the signal names in Glade. Now the XML file should look like this.

Now we have to define the handler functions in our code. The onDestroy should simply result in a call to Gtk. Next, we ghk to connect the signals and the ylade functions.


The easiest way to do this is to define a dict with a mapping from the names to the handlers and then pass it to the Gtk. An alternative approach is to create a class which has methods that are called like the signals.

UI changes can be seen more quickly, so UIs are able to improve. Designers without programming skills can create and edit UIs. The description of the user interface is independent from the programming language being used. Read the Docs v:
