( #3333=superdoc: print w/replies, xml ) Need Help??

First off, on the subject of Tk, I highly recommend "Mastering Perl Tk" (the O'Reilly Emu Book) for a reference on all things Tk. It is very easy to understand (more so than most computer books) and it includes some features of Tk that you probably aren't going to pick up easily from reading CPAN.

I haven't done too much with images in Tk, yet, but I have added images to a Canvas using Tk::Photo.

Apparently, you can also use Tk::Bitmap to add icons to Labels (and I presume buttons as well). Out of respect for the author's work, I won't copy the examples I have from the Emu book.

bgstipple is apparently for drawing patterns, not graphics, so I would avoid trying to use that if there are files you would like to display.

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.
