and switching to getOpenFile for file selection.

That seems very odd, as it seems to destroy the purpose behind the module , which is to avoid getOpenFile by implementing a different look/feel...

Uhm, I'm not sure I I'd miss something here. Where do you get the information that Tk::FileEntry uses the far ugliest file selector on purpose?

I thought it's used because at the time when the module was written, there was no getOpenFile implementation for all OS'.

So, if this is not the case and Tk::FileEntry will be stuck with this scarecrow dialog, then my patch (which did not get any attention) was absolutely obsolete and I will have to do it myself anyway.

What do you think of Tk::FilePicker?

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.
