Mastering Perl/Tk is more than useful and far more complete than the CPAN documentation. It is good you mentioned it. In fact, it is a part of the reason I know that the CPAN documentation is woefully incomplete.

But like most tutorials, they are primarily concerned with explaining the concepts (how to write a GUI) rather than laying out the range of tools available. Some fairly common use cases are missing: for example, how to create a list box or combo box where the user can add elements to the list. Is this something that has to be created out of lower level components? Is there a core widget with this functionality built in? Part of what I need to do is assess how much custom programming will be needed and how much can rely on existing components. That is hard to do without an overview laying out the capabilities of Tk.

Best, beth

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.
