In this video I’ll show you how to use the Spinner for Dropdowns with Kivy and Python!

Kivy has a couple of options when it comes to creating dropdowns, but the spinner is probably the easiest one. A Spinner Widget allows you to select from a list of items.

Once you select from the list, we can do whatever we want with the selection. In this video we’ll simply print out the selection to a label above the spinner.

Python Code:
GitHub Code:

from import App
from kivy.uix.widget import Widget
from import ObjectProperty
from kivy.lang import Builder

# Designate Our .kv design file 

class MyLayout(Widget):
	def spinner_clicked(self, value):
			self.ids.click_label.text = f'You Selected: {value}'
class AwesomeApp(App):
	def build(self):
		return MyLayout()

if __name__ == '__main__':

Kivy Design Code: spin.kv
GitHub Code: spin.kv

		orientation: "vertical"
		size: root.width, root.height

			id: click_label
			text: "Pick Favorite Pizza Below"
			font_size: 32

			id: spinner_id
			text: "Favorite Pizza"
			values: ["Pepperoni", "Cheese", "Mushroom"]

			on_text: root.spinner_clicked(spinner_id.text)
			text: ''
