tkinter The Tkinter Entry Widget Getting int From Entry Widget


When using the .get() method whatever is in the entry widget will be converted into a string. For example, regardless of the type of input(It can be a number or sentence), the resulting outcome will be a string. If the user types 4 the output will be "4" as in a string. To get an int from an Entry Widget, first, call the .get() method.

What_User_Wrote = Entry.get()

Now we convert that string into an int like so:

Convert_To_Int = int(What_User_Wrote)

Likewise, if you want to save time you can simply do:

Convert_To_Int = int(Entry.get())

You can use the above method if you don't want to convert str to int.
