Where do you get the information that Tk::FileEntry uses the far ugliest file selector on purpose?
Because it uses it?
I thought it's used because at the time when the module was written, there was no getOpenFile implementation for all OS'.
Well getOpenFile still has bugs, that never stopped most folks from using it ...:)
on second thought I think I may have confused the Tk::FileEntry author as writing Tk::FileSelect ... so I wrote all that wrong "destroying of purpose" stuff ... was reading too much into it :/
What do you think of Tk::FilePicker?
Never heard of it :)
Do you mean as your own replacement for Tk::FileSelect? Not bad name :)
You might consider allowing a user to chooose what kind of dialog to popup, Tk::FileSelect, Tk::JFileDialog, Tk::FBox, whatever :)
