Python 3 Tkinter GUI Morse Code Translator to English Language and Vice Versa Full Project For Beginners

Python 3 Tkinter GUI Morse Code Translator to English Language and Vice Versa Full Project For Beginners

 

Welcome folks today in this post we will be building a morse code translator to english language in python using tkinter. All the full source code of the application is shown below.

 

 

Get Started

 

 

In order to get started we need to install the following library using the pip command as shown below

 

pip install tkinter

 

After installing this library make an app.py file and copy paste the following code

 

app.py

 

# import all functions from the tkinter 
from tkinter import *

# import messagebox class from tkinter 
from tkinter import messagebox

# Create a GUI window 
root = Tk()

# create a global variables 
variable1 = StringVar(root) 
variable2 = StringVar(root) 

# initialise the variables 
variable1.set("lang-code") 
variable2.set("lang-code") 

''' 
VARIABLE KEY 
'cipher' -> 'stores the morse translated form of the english string' 
'decipher' -> 'stores the english translated form of the morse string' 
'citext' -> 'stores morse code of a single character' 
'i' -> 'keeps count of the spaces between morse characters' 
'message' -> 'stores the string to be encoded or decoded' 
'''

# Dictionary representing the morse code chart 
MORSE_CODE_DICT = { 'A':'.-', 'B':'-...', 
                    'C':'-.-.', 'D':'-..', 'E':'.',
