Thanks for the quick reply. If by spacer you mean Frame, then your suggestion is reassuring in that I can use it with a simple test program:

use warnings; use strict; use Tk 800.000; my $mw = MainWindow->new; my $menu = $mw->Menu(); my $file_menu = $menu->cascade(-label => 'File', -tearoff => 'false'); my $edit_menu = $menu->cascade(-label => 'Edit', -tearoff => 'false'); my $help_menu = $menu->cascade(-label => 'Help', -tearoff => 'false'); $mw->configure(-menu => $menu); my $spacer = $mw->Frame(-width => 200)->pack; # resize handle obscures Help menu $mw->resizable(0,0); MainLoop;

I'm now inclined to think I didn't get this to work earlier because there's something else in the program that prevents a packed spacer from working as expected. I know the menu's window is being resized programmatically (so that it is stretched horizontally across the screen); I will have to keep digging to figure this out. I am not the program's original author, and am still figuring out my way around both it and Perl and Tk.

Use:  <p> text here (a paragraph) </p>
and:  <code> code here </code>
to format your post; it's "PerlMonks-approved HTML":

  • Are you posting in the right place? Check out Where do I post X? to know for sure.
  • Posts may use any of the Perl Monks Approved HTML tags. Currently these include the following:
    <code> <a> <b> <big> <blockquote> <br /> <dd> <dl> <dt> <em> <font> <h1> <h2> <h3> <h4> <h5> <h6> <hr /> <i> <li> <nbsp> <ol> <p> <small> <strike> <strong> <sub> <sup> <table> <td> <th> <tr> <tt> <u> <ul>
  • Snippets of code should be wrapped in <code> tags not <pre> tags. In fact, <pre> tags should generally be avoided. If they must be used, extreme care should be taken to ensure that their contents do not have long lines (<70 chars), in order to prevent horizontal scrolling (and possible janitor intervention).
  • Want more info? How to link or How to display code and escape characters are good places to start.
