We're back after a server migration that caused effbot.org to fall over a bit harder than expected. Expect some glitches.

The Tkinter PanedWindow Class

PanedWindow(master=None, **options) (class) [#]

A paned window manager widget. This widget manages one or more child widgets, and allows the user to resize these widgets, by moving the separators between them.

add(child, **options) [#]

Adds a child window to the paned window.

config(**options) [#]

Modifies one or more widget options. If no options are given, the method returns a dictionary containing all current option values.

forget(child) [#]

Removes a child window.

identify(x, y) [#]

Identifies the widget element at the given position.

panecget(child, option) [#]

Gets a child window option.

paneconfig(child, **options) [#]

Same as paneconfigure.

paneconfigure(child, **options) [#]

Set child window configuration options.

child
Child window.
**options
Child window options.
after=
Insert after this widget.
before=
Insert before this widget.
height=
Widget height.
minsize=
Minimal size (width for horizontal panes, height for vertical panes).
padx=
Horizontal padding.
pady=
Vertical padding.
sticky=
Defines how to expand a child widget if the resulting pane is larger than the widget itself. This can be any combination of the constants S, N, E, and W, or NW, NE, SW, and SE.
width=
Widget width.

panes() [#]

Returns a list of child widgets.

Returns:
A list of widgets.

proxy_coord() [#]

Gets the most recent proxy position.

proxy_forget() [#]

Removes the proxy.

proxy_place(x, y) [#]

Places the proxy at the given position.

remove(child) [#]

Same as forget.

sash_coord(index) [#]

Gets the current position for a sash (separator).

index
Sash index (0..n).
Returns:
The upper left corner of the sash, given as a 2-tuple (x, y).

sash_dragto(index, x, y) [#]

Drag the sash (separator) to a new position, relative to the mark. Together with sash_mark, this method is used by the widget bindings to move a sash by dragging the mouse. The mark method is called when the mouse is pressed over a sash (you can use identify to figure out which sash to mark), and the dragto method is called repeatedly when the mouse pointer is moved.

Note that this method is missing from the Tkinter bindings in Python 2.3. You can use sash(“dragto”, index, x, y) instead.

index
Sash index (0..n).
Returns:
The upper left corner of the sash, given as a 2-tuple (x, y).

sash_mark(index, x, y) [#]

Registers the current mouse position. See sash_dragto for more information.

Note that this method only takes a single argument in the Tkinter bindings shipped with in Python 2.3. To pass in all three arguments, use sash(“mark”, index, x, y).

index
Sash index (0..n).
x
Start position.
y
Start position.

sash_place(index, x, y) [#]

Moves the sash (separator) to a given position.

index
Sash index (0..n).
x
Sash position.
y
Sash position.
