Do you know where your variables are?

G'day olgo,

Providing a prosaic description of your code, rather than actual code, is an exceptionally poor choice. This greatly hampers our ability to provide improved code. Please don't do this. See "How do I post a question effectively?" and SSCCE.

"Is it possible to disable the GUI Event mechanisms, ..."

Check the documentation on a widget-by-widget basis. Interactive widgets often have a -state option, with possible values such as disabled and readonly, which may be sufficient for your needs. For greater control of events, try Tk::bind (and do follow the additional links at the end of that page).

"Is it possible to disable the binding of variables to widgets, like -textvariable for Entry widgets?"

I expect you mean something else. The obvious answer to your question is don't use a -textvariable option. If you meant "delay" rather than "disable", see Tk::options.

"I have already replaced some really slow superwidgets for leaner alternative (e.g. JBrowseEntry for BrowseEntry) but maybe there are leaner widgets still?"

Maybe there are. Without any code, how could anyone tell which widgets you consider slow?

"What else?"

Again, no code, no answer possible.

Use:  <p> text here (a paragraph) </p>
and:  <code> code here </code>
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.
