I need to place a text/label centred in a canvas rectangle in tkinter.
First I have a canvas covering the whole screen(800, 600).
And then I have a couple of rectangles which I made using the:
menuBtn1 = canvas.create_rectangle(275, 165, 525, 215, fill="#C2B6BF")
You should use create_text. As it says in the link in the description of the position parameter:
By default, the text is centered on this position. You can override this with the anchor option. For example, if the coordinate is the upper left corner, set the anchor to NW.
So this should be what you want:
mylabel = canvas.create_text((400, 190), text="Label text")
