MyFSL has asked for the wisdom of the Perl Monks concerning the following question:

In Perl/TK

$MW = MainWindow->new(-width=>'600',-height=>'600');

Why doesn't this set the width and height on the Main Window?
How do I set the width and height of the main window?
This is driving me nuts!!!!

perl, v5.8.8 built for i486-linux
HELP!

    #!/usr/bin/perl use strict; use warnings; use Tk; my $mw = MainWindow->new(); my $c = $mw->Canvas(-width => 600, -height => 600); $c->pack; MainLoop;

    I hope this helps.

    Well, you can set it that way:

    my $MW = MainWindow->new( -height => 600, -width => 600 );

    or

    my $MW = MainWindow->new; $MW->geometry( "600x600" );

    but if you arrange items that don't fit into that size, your window will enlarge

    in perldoc Tk::Wm the methods ->maxsize and ->minsize could be interesting for you

    Best regards,
    perl -e "s>>*F>e=>y)\*martinF)stronat)=>print,print v8.8.8.32.11.32"

    I believe the problem with your code lies in the quotes around the numeric values.
    Try:
    my $MW = MainWindows->new(-width=>600, -height=>600);
    Cheers, Akoya
