# Build a simple calculator in Python using Tkinter

## Python tkinter Basic: Exercise-13 with Solution

Write a Python program to design a simple calculator application using Tkinter with buttons for numbers and arithmetic operations.

Sample Solution:

Python Code:

``````import tkinter as tk

# Function to update the display
def update_display(value):
current_text = display_var.get()
if current_text == "0":
display_var.set(value)
else:
display_var.set(current_text + value)

# Function to clear the display
def clear_display():
display_var.set("0")

# Function to evaluate the expression and display the result
def calculate_result():
try:
result = eval(display_var.get())
display_var.set(result)
except Exception as e:
display_var.set("Error")

# Create the main window
parent = tk.Tk()
parent.title("Calculator")

# Create a variable to store the current display value
display_var = tk.StringVar()
display_var.set("0")

# Create the display label
display_label.grid(row=0, column=0, columnspan=4)

# Define the button layout
button_layout = [
("7", 1, 0), ("8", 1, 1), ("9", 1, 2), ("/", 1, 3),
("4", 2, 0), ("5", 2, 1), ("6", 2, 2), ("*", 2, 3),
("1", 3, 0), ("2", 3, 1), ("3", 3, 2), ("-", 3, 3),
("0", 4, 0), (".", 4, 1), ("=", 4, 2), ("+", 4, 3),
]

# Create and place the buttons
for (text, row, col) in button_layout:
command=lambda t=text: update_display(t) if t != "=" else calculate_result())
button.grid(row=row, column=col)

# Create a Clear button
clear_button.grid(row=5, column=0, columnspan=3)

# Start the Tkinter event loop
parent.mainloop()
```
```

In the exercise above, we create a simple calculator GUI with buttons for numbers (0-9), arithmetic operations (+, -, *, /), a decimal point, an equals (=) button to calculate the result, and a clear (C) button to clear the display.

Note: Click the buttons to input numbers and perform arithmetic operations. The result will be displayed on the top label.

Sample Output:

```
```
