Re: TclTk interface with Perl code, is it possible?by sam_bakki (Pilgrim)

I was looking for good GUI interface for perl and I was also looking with same requirement as you. I need a good GUI editor and i will only write code for events not for GUI elements.
Basically i was looking similar to Visualbasic in Visual studio.
Tk was fine but it was old and Tkx do not have very good editor etc etc etc research and perl Gtk2 very well suited for me.
You can use Glade GUI editor tool and create a GUI in IDE, store it as XML file and load from your perl program. According to me this is as easy as VB
one major issue with perl GTK2 is there is very less documentation about it , So i always used python Gtk2 doc to know about the API and code in perl
I have also started a perl GTK2 based open source project just to show the power and easiness of perl GTK2 & glade GUI editor
You can take a look at the code and get information about perl GTK2 based development.
Read development environment setup here: http://code.google.com/p/saaral-soft-search-spider/

Note: Gtk2 runtime , Glade IDE is available in binary form for windows also. I use it in Windows 7 without issues. Perl Gtk2 and other related modules available for ActivePerl 5.12 via http://www. sisyphusion.tk/ppm/ repository.
Installing these modules is like piece of cake eating. Big thanks to Syphilis (perl Monk) to make these modules available to perl world
Final Note: I tried Active State perl app to bundle perl Gtk2 application which works like charm. No problems
