in reply to Perl / Tk Calendar - advice please.

Hi jdtoronto,

Have you considered using Tk::Month?

There's a simple example of how to use it here.

Even if you decide to go a similar (or different) route, I'd recommend trying it out, as it might give you some good ideas.

You will probably want to play around with printformat, though.  The value used in the node I referred to above doesn't send the day of the month to the anonymous subroutine.

    Thanks liverpole,

    I had seen that only a few minutes before I posted. Interestingly it adopts the method I was proposing - using a button for each element. But it does work and I think a modified version of it will have a place in my application. I have played with some ideas for using a similar approach to my "week at a view" page and I think I can make it look respectable.

    Hi, How we get subroutine working, e.g. accept values for %a and %e when we press calendar button Insted anonymous subroutine I was using named subrutine, but not working Could someone help?
      The %e and %a are just formatting strings. Read perldoc Tk::Month to see how to change it. To get rid of the anonymous sub, it's simple, try this. I showed how to see what is passed to the sub. If this dosn't answer your question, be more specific in what you need to do.
      #!/usr/bin/perl use warnings; use strict; use Tk; use Tk::Month; my $mw = MainWindow->new(); my $month = "November"; my $year = "2006"; my $m = $mw->Month( -printformat => '%a %e', -includeall => 0, -month => $month, -year => $year, -command => \&mysub ); $m->pack; MainLoop; sub mysub { print scalar @_,"\n"; print $_[0],"\n"; print $_[1],"\n"; print @{$_[1]},"\n"; my ($ym, $wd) = @_; my ($month, $year) = split( /\s+/ , $ym ); my ($wday, $date) = split( /\s+/ , $wd->[0] ); print "$wday, $month $date $year\n"; }

      I'm not really a human, but I play one on earth.
