in thread Dragging/Dropping images with Tk

It is years I have not used Tk so I read some docs to refresh my memory. I would indeed implement the "table" with a Tk::Canvas and the cards with bitmaps items. You need to add handlers to move the cards. I will probably send some some code if I can get some juice from my brain cells.

I first thought using TopLevel windows for moved cards and using Tk::wm overrideredirect to ask the window manager not to decorate the said windows/cards, But this is more complex and does probably work only on X-Window.

    I don't know if its a big deal, but the cards are Photo types (they're .gif so Bitmap wouldn't be appropriate I don't think, and as the book I got tells me, bitmap isn't what the 'Windows' world thinks of, so I couldn't just convert it using Paint Shop Pro, for example).

    Thanks though, I'll go off to re-read on TK::Canvas and "table".

      There is no such class as a table. I was just trying to name the surface you want to emulate. :) With the following code, you should have everything to start with. It says when you pick the card, moves it when you drag the mouse, and say when you drop the said card. You should read Tk::bind and Tk::callbacks to fill the details.. Pick a real gif file name as the file parameter!.
      use strict; use Tk qw( Ev ); my $m = MainWindow->new(); my $c = $m->Canvas->pack( -expand => 1, fill => 'both'); my ($lastx, $lasty) = (100, 100); my $card = $c->createImage($lastx, $lasty, -image => $m->Photo(-file => '/usr/lib/perl5/site_perl/5.6.1/i386-linux/Tk/X +camel.gif', -format => 'gif'), -anchor => 'center'); $c->bind( $card, "<1>", sub { print STDERR "bark\n"; } ); $c->bind( $card, "<B1-Motion>", [ \&mymovehandler, $card, Ev("x"),Ev(" +y"), ]); # note how the event handler is setup: as a a reference # to an array. Array elements are the handler # and its parameters. See Tk::Bind about the Ev("x") and some such. $c->bind( $card, "<ButtonRelease-1>", sub { print STDERR "dropped\n"; +} ); sub mymovehandler { my ($canvas, $card, $x, $y ) = @_;; $c->move($card, $x -$lastx, $y - $lasty); ($lastx, $lasty) = ($x, $y); } Tk::MainLoop();
