sure; I don't blame anyone in being a monkey. Just thought adding more code would clobber...

I tried the $mw->geometry(undef); this works great when hiding the to be hidden widgets. So far so good.
But then when restoring the hidden, they are restored to their 'required' width and height, rather than those they had when they were 'packForgotten'.
This seems to be the effect of the $mw->geometry(undef); call

There is a diff between:
$mw_w = $mw->width; $mw_h = $mw->height;
and
$mw_w = $mw->reqwidth; $mw_h = $mw->reqheight;
After many tries I found a solution (?) by remembering the geometry of the MW when hiding:
$mw_geom = $mw->geometry();
and restoring this when re-packing:
$mw->geometry($mw_geom);
So I can add that to my code in some way or another. Only thing is that I do not understand it yet ;-(

to format your post; it's "PerlMonks-approved HTML":



  • Are you posting in the right place? Check out Where do I post X? to know for sure.
  • Posts may use any of the Perl Monks Approved HTML tags. Currently these include the following:
    <code> <a> <b> <big> <blockquote> <br /> <dd> <dl> <dt> <em> <font> <h1> <h2> <h3> <h4> <h5> <h6> <hr /> <i> <li> <nbsp> <ol> <p> <small> <strike> <strong> <sub> <sup> <table> <td> <th> <tr> <tt> <u> <ul>
  • Snippets of code should be wrapped in <code> tags not <pre> tags. In fact, <pre> tags should generally be avoided. If they must be used, extreme care should be taken to ensure that their contents do not have long lines (<70 chars), in order to prevent horizontal scrolling (and possible janitor intervention).
  • Want more info? How to link or How to display code and escape characters are good places to start.
