I'm fairly new to programming and Python in general. I'm attempting to use Tkinter to build a bible app for my mom as a present of sorts for mothers day, however I'm mainly using this project as a means to practice and develop new skills. I'm using the bible-api and JSON to return the requested verse (For example http://bible-api.com/john 3:16 will return said verse). However, whenever I attempt to run the program, I receive a key error, in specific "KeyError: 'text'" with a traceback to lines 21 and 8. Code is as follows:
import json import requests from tkinter import * def printVerse(): verse_input = entry.get() verse_raw = requests.get('https://bible-api.com/' + verse_input).json() verse_text = verse_raw['text'] verse_output = Label(root, text=verse_text) verse_output.pack() root = Tk() root.title('Bible App') root.geometry('1000x500') entry = Entry(root) entry.insert(0, "Ex. 'John 3:16'") entry.pack(padx=5, pady=5) return_button = Button(root, text='Print Your Verse!', command=printVerse()) return_button.pack() root.mainloop()
Whenever I replace entry.get() with a regular string the program executes with no issues. I've also tried adding a textvariable to Entry(root) and using the .get command on the entry variable, however that returns the same error. What am I doing wrong here?
Thanks in advance.
