:I mean can you do somethig to Tkinter.Entry like setting the default text value for text field in HTML's form?
:Thanks a lot.

This is something my son and I were working on yesterday.

You probably want the insert method for the Entry widget.
Here is a handy Tkinter reference:

Looking at the Entry methods:

It looks like, if

input = Entry(root)

is your Entry widget, then

input.insert(0, "My default text here")

should work???
