Using sub after MainLoop with Tk

by merrymonk (Hermit)

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

With Perl/Tk I want to run a subroutine immediately after MainLoop has been ‘used’.
I found I can do this by adding a bind on to the main window that was activated whenever
the cursor was moved. This had the desired result. However, if there a more elegant way of achieving this?

    Try $mw->after( 500, \&Callback ) before calling MainLoop (see perldoc Tk::After for further details)

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

      Great! That worked just as I wanted it to.
      Many thanks.
