In this blog, I am going to create a message box that asks retry or cancel, in Python GUI application. When a user clicks “Exit” from action menu, it will ask for the user’s choice as - retry or cancel - in the application screen.

Software requirement

Python 3.5 and IDLE (Python 3.5)

Programming code

  1. #Create retry or cancel action Box in Python GUI Application  
  2. import tkinter as tk  
  3. from tkinter import ttk  
  4. from tkinter import Menu  
  5. from tkinter import messagebox as mbox  
  6. app = tk.Tk()

About the code

First, I am importing the tkinter modules.

Next, assign a class and variables and give application title.

Next, create a menu bar and add a menu item in the menu bar.

Next, create ask message function and add “Retry” or “Cancel” options in displaying command menu.

Finally, I have started the windows event loop by calling the mainloop method.

Then, let’s execute the code.
