    Once the widget is actually shown ($mw->update), you can ask for any widget's location and size with $widget->geometry, which will return something like "243x25+10+233".

    Sure, most probably :) add use Tk::WidgetDump; $mainWindow->WidgetDump; MainLoop; to your program and see if it has the details, see Tk::options
