Weight conversion means to multiply the value of a unit with the standard conversion value. In this article, I will take you through how to create a weight converter GUI with Python programming language.

The standard weight conversion values include:

1 milligram = 0.001 gram
1 centigram = 0.01 gram
1 decigram = 0.1 gram
1 kilogram = 1000 grams
1 gram = 1000 milligrams
1 ton = 2000 pounds
1 pound = 16 ounces

Weight Converter GUI with Python
Now let’s see how to create a weight converter application with Python by adding some graphical user interface features. I will use the Tkinter library in Python for this task:

``````from tkinter import *
# Creating a GUI Window
window = Tk()
def from_kg():
gram = float(e2_value.get())*1000
pound = float(e2_value.get())*2.20462
ounce = float(e2_value.get())*35.274
t1.delete("1.0",END)
t1.insert(END, gram)
t2.delete("1.0", END)
t2.insert(END, pound)
t3.delete("1.0", END)
t3.insert(END, ounce)

e1 = Label(window, text="Input the weight in KG")
e2_value = StringVar()
e2 = Entry(window, textvariable=e2_value)
e3 = Label(window, text="Gram")
e4 = Label(window, text="Pound")
e5 = Label(window, text="Ounce")

t1 = Text(window, height=5, width=30)
t2 = Text(window, height=5, width=30)
t3 = Text(window, height=5, width=30)

b1 = Button(window, text="Convert", command=from_kg)

e1.grid(row=0, column=0)
e2.grid(row=0, column=1)
e3.grid(row=1, column=0)
e4.grid(row=1, column=1)
e5.grid(row=1, column=2)
t1.grid(row=2, column=0)
t2.grid(row=2, column=1)
t3.grid(row=2, column=2)
b1.grid(row=0, column=2)

window.mainloop()``````

NOTE – In order to run the project of Python, you have to download Python IDLE or Pycharam. In the video I have explained how to download and install it.
