You are probably way on your way with this, but I figure I would give you two examples in one. The first you will see is the Tk::FileSelect, which brings up a browser window for the user to select a file from (I prefer this solutions, simply because history has shown my not to trust the user). However, if what you are trying to do is a little more complex than you can simply implement this by using Tk::Entry, which is an easier solution than using a Textbox.

#!/usr/bin/perl -w use Tk; use Tk::FileSelect; use strict; my $mw = MainWindow->new; #Solution #1 the next two lines! my $FSref = $mw->FileSelect(-directory=>"C:/"); my $dir = $FSref->Show; #solution #2 up until MainLoop $mw->Label(-text => 'File Name: ')->pack; my $filename = $mw->Entry(-width => 50, -textvariable => "$dir"); $filename->pack; $mw->Button( -text => 'Print', -command => sub{do_print($filename)} )->pack; MainLoop; #used by solution #2, to print the output to the terminal sub do_print { my ($file) = @_; my $file_val = $file->get; print "You selected $file_val\n"; }

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.
