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

Hi, I have created Excel using Spreadsheet::WriteExcel in Perl/Tk. The created xls is getting save to the location where my program resides. I want to Open an excel instead of saving it first itself. And the User should save the excel to the system only if required. Can you please help how can I do that. -Vidya

    You could use Tk::TableMatrix::Spreadsheet to present your spreadsheet to the user and add a button "Save" to store it as you do now.

    my $ss = $mw->Scrolled ('Spreadsheet', -rows => $h, -cols => $w, -width => 10, -height => 20, -titlerows => 1, -titlecols => 0, -selectmode => "extended", -resizeborders => "both", -justify => "left", -anchor => "w", -variable => $data, )->pack (-expand => 1, -fill => "both", -side => "top", -anchor => + "nw"); $ss->Subwidget ("${_}scrollbar")->configure (-width => 6) for qw( x y +); $ss->tagConfigure ("title", -bg => "#ffffe0", -justify => "left"); $ss->tagConfigure ("active", -bg => "#ffff40", -justify => "left"); $ss->tagConfigure ("sel", -bg => "gray95", -justify => "left"); # autosize columns on data (not on headers) $ss->colWidth (map { $_ => $w[$_] } 0 .. $#w);

    Can't call method "Scrolled" on an undefined value Getting this error with the code metioned. Can you please help.

      Are you aware that Tux did not provide a complete program? What steps have you taken to determine what the problem is?

    Here is a working Tk Spreadsheet. You will need to somehow export your excel data to csv ( or something similar) to fill the data in. See display excel with Perl Tk or google for display excel Perl Tk

    A good example of Tk's spreadsheet, you will need to export your excel data to csv, tsv, or arrays of data.

    #!/usr/bin/perl use strict; use warnings; use Tk; use Tk::TableMatrix; use Tk::TableMatrix::Spreadsheet; my $top = MainWindow->new; my $arrayVar = {}; print "Filling Array...\n"; my ($rows,$cols) = (40000, 10); foreach my $row (0..($rows-1)){ $arrayVar->{"$row,0"} = "$row"; } foreach my $col (0..($cols-1)){ $arrayVar->{"0,$col"} = "$col"; } print "Creating Table...\n"; sub colSub{ my $col = shift; return "OddCol" if( $col > 0 && $col%2) ; } my $label = $top->Label(-text => "TableMatrix v2 Example") ->pack( -expand => 1, -fill => 'both'); my $t = $top->Scrolled('Spreadsheet', -rows => $rows, -cols => $cols, -width => 6, -height => 12, -titlerows => 1, -titlecols => 1, -variable => $arrayVar, -coltagcommand => \&colSub, -colstretchmode => 'last', -flashmode => 1, -flashtime => 2, -wrap=>1, -rowstretchmode => 'last', -selectmode => 'extended', -selecttype=>'cell', -selecttitles => 0, -drawmode => 'slow', -scrollbars=>'se', -sparsearray=>0 )->pack(-expand => 1, -fill => 'both'); #my $realmatrix = $t->Subwidget('scrolled'); $top->Button( -text => "Show Selected", -command => sub{ print $t->curselection(),"\n"; })->pack(-expand => 1, -fill => 'x'); $top->Button( -text => "Clear", -command => sub{&clear})->pack(-expand => 1, -fill => 'x'); $top->Button( -text => "Fill", -command => sub{&fill})->pack(-expand => 1, -fill => 'x'); $top->Button( -text => "Exit", -command => sub{$top->destroy})->pack(-expand => 1, -fill => 'x' +); $t->colWidth( -2 => 8, -1 => 9, 0=> 12, 4=> 14); $arrayVar->{"1,1"} = 42; Tk::MainLoop; ###################################################################### +#### sub TMRefresh { #Required input TableMatrix object. #use to force matrix to update, a code trick return if (!$_[0]); $_[0]->configure(-padx =>($_[0]->cget(-padx))); #$realmatrix->update; #$t->update; #$top->update; #$t->see("100,100"); #trick to force update? #$t->see("end"); #$t->see("1,1"); } ###################################################################### +### sub clear{ #$t->clearAll('0,0','end'); foreach my $row(1..$rows){ foreach my $col(1..$cols){ $arrayVar->{"$row,$col"} = 0; } } &TMRefresh($t); } ###################################################################### +#### sub fill{ foreach my $row(1..$rows){ foreach my $col(1..$cols){ $arrayVar->{"$row,$col"} = 1000; } } &TMRefresh($t); } ###################################################################### +#####

      My Spreadsheet::Read comes with ss2tk in the examples folder, which displays all spreadsheets supported by Spreadsheet::Read in perl/Tk.

      $ ss2tk --help usage: ss2tk [-w <width>] [X11 options] file.xls [<pattern>] -w <width> use <width> as default column width (4)

        Hi All, I have now the data written to my excel sheet. The excel sheet is directly getting saved to my folder when I click the Generate Report button. Can I have the excel sheet opened directly while clicking the button, instead of saving to my local, and to save only if I need to do it. Is there an option for the same. Please help. Thanks, Vidya
