The Radiobutton Widget
The Radiobutton is a standard Tkinter widget used to implement one-of-many selections. Radiobuttons can contain text or images, and you can associate a Python function or method with each button. When the button is pressed, Tkinter automatically calls that function or method.
The button can only display text in a single font, but the text may span more than one line. In addition, one of the characters can be underlined, for example to mark a keyboard shortcut. By default, the Tab key can be used to move to a button widget.
Each group of Radiobutton widgets should be associated with single variable. Each button then represents a single value for that variable.
The radiobutton widget is used to implement one-of-many selections. It's almost always used in groups, where all group members use the same variable.
