Python tkinter image path setting question 'unicodeescape' code can't decode bytes in position 2-3: truncated \UXXXXXXescape

Asked 1 weeks ago, Updated 1 weeks ago, 1 views

I copied and pasted the file path on the blog with any picture I had, but there was an error. (I tried to display a picture of a png file called Lee on my desktop)

from tkinter import *

w = Tk()
w.title("Hello Renoir!")
w.geometry("400x400")

photo= PhotoImage ("C:\Users\Administrator\OneDrive\Desktop\Lee.png")
pLabel = Label(w, image=photo)
pLabel.pack(expand=1, anchor=CENTER)

w.mainloop()
File "C:\Users\Administratorkin\OneDrive\Desktop\test.py", line 7 Screen\Lee.png"
    photo= PhotoImage ("c:\Users\Administrator\OneDrive\Background" 
Screen\Lee.png")
                       ^                                     
SyntaxError: (unicode error) 'unicodeescape' codec can't decode bytes in position 2-3: truncated \UXXXXXXXX escape        

How do I write the file path?

photo= PhotoImage ("C:\Users\Administrator\OneDrive\Desktop\Lee.png") This

photo=PhotoImage(r:\Users\Administrator\OneDrive\Desktop\Lee.png) or photo=PhotoImage("C:\Users\\Administrator\OneDrive\Desktop\\\Leo/Ineode("C:\\Administrator\Note/Note")

To explain why this error occurred, the Python string (also in C) is wrapped in " or ', "", '") The \ inside is a character with a special meaning, so you can enter a special character depending on what character comes after it. (Escape character) In the example above, \U means that the Unicode number displays Unicode characters with numbers at the back, not \ and U. So,

'unicodeescape' codec can't decode bytes in position 2-3: truncated \UXXXXXXXX escape

The Unicode Escape codec generates an error message that cannot interpret \UXXXXXXXX.
