Removing the TK icon on a Tkinter window

Question!

Does anybody know how to make the icon not show up? I'm looking for a way to have no icon at all.



Answers

Based on previous responses i used this solution:

from PIL import ImageTk
import zlib,base64
import Tkinter

icon=zlib.decompress(base64.b64decode('eJxjYGAEQgEBBiDJwZDBy'
'sAgxsDAoAHEQCEGBQaIOAg4sDIgACMUj4JRMApGwQgF/ykEAFXxQRc='))
root=Tkinter.Tk()
image=ImageTk.PhotoImage(data=icon)
root.tk.call('wm', 'iconphoto', root._w, image)
root.mainloop()


Similar to the accepted answer (with the con of being uglier):

import tkinter
import tempfile

ICON = (b'\x00\x00\x01\x00\x01\x00\x10\x10\x00\x00\x01\x00\x08\x00h\x05\x00\x00'
        b'\x16\x00\x00\x00(\x00\x00\x00\x10\x00\x00\x00 \x00\x00\x00\x01\x00'
        b'\x08\x00\x00\x00\x00\[email protected]\x05\x00\x00\x00\x00\x00\x00\x00\x00\x00\x00'
        b'\x00\x01\x00\x00\x00\x01') + b'\x00'*1282 + b'\xff'*64

_, ICON_PATH = tempfile.mkstemp()
with open(ICON_PATH, 'wb') as icon_file:
    icon_file.write(ICON)

tk = tkinter.Tk()
tk.iconbitmap(default=ICON_PATH)
label = tkinter.Label(tk, text="Window with transparent icon.")
label.pack()

tk.mainloop()

It just creates the file on the fly instead, so you don't have to carry an extra file around. Using the same method, you could also do an '.xbm' icon for Unix.

Edit: The ICON can be shortened even further thanks to @Magnus Hoff:

import base64, zlib

ICON = zlib.decompress(base64.b64decode('eJxjYGAEQgEBBiDJwZDBy'
    'sAgxsDAoAHEQCEGBQaIOAg4sDIgACMUj4JRMApGwQgF/ykEAFXxQRc='))

On Windows

Step One:

Create a transparent icon using either an icon editor, or a site like rw-designer. Save it as transparent.ico.

Step Two:

from tkinter import *

tk = Tk()
tk.iconbitmap(default='transparent.ico')
lab = Label(tk, text='Window with transparent icon.')
lab.pack()
tk.mainloop()

On Unix

Something similar, but using an xbm icon.
