I'm not familiar with Tk, but I think he was trying to get you to do something more like this:

#! c:\perl\bin -w use strict; use Tk; my $mw=new MainWindow; $mw->minsize(qw(250 150)); $mw->title(" Tk Test 1 "); my $body=$mw->Frame(-background=>'cyan')->pack(side=>'bottom', -fill=> +'x'); my $fr1=$body->Frame(-background=>'magenta')->pack(side=>'top', -fill= +>'x'); my $txt='hi'; $fr1->Label(-textvariable=>\$txt, -background=>'yellow', -foreground=> +'red')->pack(-fill=>'y'); sleep 5; change('foo', $fr1, $mw); sleep 5; change('bar', $fr1, $mw); MainLoop(); sub change { my ($new_txt, $fr1, $mw)=@_; $txt = $new_txt $fr1->pack(-fill=>'y'); $mw->update; }

Again, I'm not a Tk guy, but I think the $txt variable gets tied to the label, so you just want to update the variable and get the label to refresh itself.

Update: Just tested it here, and yup, it replaces the old label.

Update 2: Fixed code formatting.

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.
