in reply to Tkx Optionmenu

Is the syntax below correct?

:) the code compiles so its correct syntax, but as the runtime error says, there is no command optionmenu

What is this optionmenu widget you're trying to create? Where is it documented?

I'd appreciate any suggestions.

You can always stick , there is no reason to pickup Tkx

    Thanks for the reply. optionmenu is a Tk widget.

    I found that for Tkx, combobox is basically the same as optionmenu so I was able to use that.

    I am continuing to have difficulties with the conversion. You suggested sticking with Tk, however, I don't have Tk included in the installation of Active Perl that I am now using. Is there a download you can point me to? Would it be a simple download of Tk to use my current script or is there more to it? Thank you again!
