in thread Tk April Fools

Well I wanted the Fool to try and chase the window with the mouse, trying to hit the Close icon. Binding exit to mouse movement would preclude that.

Speaking of non-lameness, have you seen the best prank of the day, by the BBC? Check out this Flash.... Flying Penquins

    ier, bind the window movement to mouse movement, not on timer
      Yeah, I think I saw a Japh like that, where you couldn't get the mouse over the window without it jumping. Something like:
      #!/usr/bin/perl use strict; use Tk; my $mw = new MainWindow(); $mw->geometry("100x100+100+100"); my $label1 = $mw->Label(-text => "Catch Me Fool", -bg => 'cyan')-> pack(-fill => 'both', -expand => 1,); #put stuff here $mw->bind("<Enter>",sub { my $x = int rand 600; my $y = int rand 600; $mw->geometry("+$x+$y"); }); MainLoop;

      I'm not really a human, but I play one on earth. Cogito ergo sum a bum

        The mouse shy window trick has been around at least since the Mac+.

        Perl is environmentally friendly - it saves trees
