Tk allows 'tab-key' ordering by the order in which you pack your widgets. One way to change this behaviour is to bind a key event to the focus method of the 'next' widget in line.

In this snippet, I bound the return key to the next 'Entry' widget in line. Uncomment the line noted in the code if you want to wrap around.

What time is it? It's Camel Time!

use Tk; use strict; use warnings; my $win = MainWindow->new(); $win->Button(-text=>'Other Window',-command=>\&otherwindow)->pack; sub otherwindow { my $otherwin = $win->Toplevel; my $foo = $otherwin->Entry->pack; my $bar = $otherwin->Entry->pack; my $baz = $otherwin->Entry->pack; &defineOrder($foo, $bar, $baz); } sub defineOrder { my $widget; for (my $i=0; defined( $_[$i+1] ); $i++) { $_[$i]->bind('<Key-Return>', [\&focus, $_[$i+1]]); } # Uncomment this line if you want to wrap around #$_[$#_]->bind('<Key-Return>', [\&focus, $_[0]]); $_[0]->focus; } sub focus { my ($tk, $self) = @_; $self->focus; } MainLoop();

  • 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.
