In this video we’ll learn how to do Animation for Widgets with CustomTkinter and Python.

How do we move widgets? Maybe you want a menu to slide out when a button is clicked.

Or maybe you want to hide a widget based on a certain user action and want a stylish way to do that.

Animations are the way to do it and I’ll show you how to use them in this video.

Python Code: ctk_animations.py
(Github Code)

from tkinter import *
import customtkinter

# Set the theme and color options
customtkinter.set_appearance_mode("dark")  # Modes: system (default), light, dark
customtkinter.set_default_color_theme("dark-blue")  # Themes: blue (default), dark-blue, green

#root = Tk()
root = customtkinter.CTk()

root.title('Tkinter.com - CustomTkinter Widget Animations')
root.iconbitmap('images/codemy.ico')
root.geometry('700x450')

global my_y
my_y = 450/2+350

def up():
	global my_y
	my_y -= 20
	if my_y >= 195:
		my_text.place(x=700/2, y=my_y, anchor='center')
		up_button.configure(text=my_y)
		root.after(5, up)

def down():
	global my_y
	my_y += 20
	if my_y <= 750:
		my_text.place(x=700/2, y=my_y, anchor='center')
		up_button.configure(text=my_y)
		root.after(5, down)


#Frame
my_frame = customtkinter.CTkFrame(root)
my_frame.pack(pady=20)

# Buttons
up_button = customtkinter.CTkButton(my_frame, text="Up", command=up)
up_button.grid(row=0, column=0, padx=10)

down_button = customtkinter.CTkButton(my_frame, text="Down", command=down)
down_button.grid(row=0, column=1, padx=10)

# Text Box 
my_text = customtkinter.CTkTextbox(root, width=400, height=200)
my_text.place(x=700/2, y=my_y, anchor='center')



root.mainloop()
