Tkx::font_configure("TkTooltipFont" .... does not work

Posted by on 2014-03-12 00:08

I'm using ActivePerl 5.16 and Tkx on RedHat;

I'm using a tooltip ... but would like to change the font.
I use
Tkx::font_configure("TkTooltipFont", -family=>"courier", -size=>10);

But this has no effect on the font displayed.
If I do
Tkx::font_configure("TkTooltipFont") ... I can see that the new font seems to be registered
Tkx::font_configure("TkDefaultFont", -family=>"courier", -size=>10) then all fonts
(including the tooltip font) change

I suspect that the tooltip is not really using the tooltip font.

Any thoughts?
