In this tutorial, you will learn how to create a Label widget and display it in a window.

Steps to create and display Label in Tkinter

Step 1

Import tkinter and create a window.

import tkinter as tk
window = tk.Tk()

Step 2

Create a label widget using tkinter.Label class.

label = tk.Label(window, text="Hello World!")

The first argument to the Label() constructor specifies the master for the Label widget. Since we are going to display the Label directly in the window, we pass window object created in the previous step.

Step 3

Pack the label widget in the parent widget using Label.pack() method.


Step 4

Run the application.



In this example, we shall combine all the above mentioned steps, and create a Label with text Hello World.


import tkinter as tk

# Create the main window
window = tk.Tk()

# Create a label widget
label = tk.Label(window, text="Hello World!")

# Pack the label widget to display it

# Run the application


Run on a MacOS.
