Problems with selected Tkx methods

Posted by jarlook on 2007-01-22 23:54

I am in the process of converting a program originally written in Perl/Tk in a Windows environment to Perl/Tkx in a MAC OS X environment. (Thanks to jeffg for the suggestion.) The widgets and framing all work fine, but I can't seem to successfully invoke some methods and functions used in the old program, specifically:

tagConfigure
focus
raise
deiconify
withdraw

Exists (the Tk function, not the Perl function)

Any help would be appreciated.

If you "perldoc Tkx" and search for Tkx::foo you will find the interface for these sorts of things. For example:

Tkx::wm_withdraw $parent

Will withdraw the window specified by $parent.
