( #3333=superdoc: print w/replies, xml ) Need Help??

The aptly named screenwidth and screenheight methods of the MainWindow will give you that info. They are documented in Tk::Wm. While the documentation for Tk is good, it takes some searching to find relevant info. I own a copy of "Mastering Perl/Tk", and it's a good reference to have on hand.

Here's a quick example:

#!/usr/bin/perl use warnings; use strict; use Tk; my $mw = MainWindow->new; $mw->Label( -text => $mw->screenheight . " x ". $mw->screenwidth )->p +ack; MainLoop;
On this computer, it gives me "1280 x 1024"

Title:
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 or How to display code and escape characters are good places to start.
