Others have given good answers to your question, but neglected to chastise you for your lousy code. So just in case this is homework, I offer these comments.:-)

First off, if you added

use warnings; use strict;
you would have received a fatal error that there is no Tk::CheckButton module. Fix that error, then you load Tk::LabFrame but never use it. Instead you use Tk::Pane to make a scrolled frame, which has its packing options unset, so the whole checkbutton list is crushed to 1 entry. You even use the .. operator incorrectly, but luckily it seems to work.
foreach $i (1...20) # that ... should be ..
Your @a array only has 10 elements one to ten, but you make 20 checkbuttons.

If you are a student, I wouldn't even accept this as a valid submission. Here is some unflawed code for you to look at.

#!/usr/bin/perl use warnings; use strict; use Tk; use Tk::Pane; my @a=qw/one two three four five six seven eight nine ten/; my $mw = MainWindow->new; $mw->geometry('200x200'); my $f = $mw->Scrolled("Frame",-borderwidth => 3, -relief => 'groove',- +height=>20) ->pack(-expand=> 1, -fill=>'both'); foreach my $i (0 .. 19){ # this should be foreach my $i (@a), but it' +s your code :-) print "$i\n"; my $c = $f->Checkbutton(-text=>$a[$i],-command=>[ \&fun, $a[$i] ] )->p +ack(); $i++; } MainLoop; sub fun{ print "@_\n"; }

I'm not really a human, but I play one on earth.
