In this video I’ll show you how to open a text file and output the contents to a text widget in Tkinter. We’ll also look at saving the text from a Text Widget to a text file.
Python makes it easy to open files, read them, and write to them. We’ll use python’s ability to easily open files to output them into a Text Widget.
Here are the Python read write methods that are most important:
Read only r
Read and Write r+ (beginning of file)
Write Only w (over-written)
Write and Read w+ (over written)
Append Only a (end of file)
Append and Read a+ (end of file)
