in reply to Tk vs Tkx for -validatecommand

Tk and Tkx are different, and the callbacks need to be set up differently. I don't have Tkx running on my Linux box, but from looking at the Tkx documentation for callbacks to Perl it shows this syntax for a validate command.
$entry->configure(-validatecommand => [ \&check, Tkx::Ev('%P'), $entry, ]);

I'm not really a human, but I play one on earth.

    I tried the following which includes the callback. It isn't working properly. Does anyone see the problem? Thanks!

    #! perl use strict; use warnings; use Tkx; my $value; my $mw = Tkx::widget->new("."); my $ent = $mw->new_entry(-textvariable => \$value,-validate => 'key')- +>g_pack(); $ent->configure( -validatecommand => [sub { $_[0] =~ /^(?:|-|\d+|-\d+)$ +/ }, Tkx::Ev('%P'), $ent], -invalidcommand => \&lam_num_error); my $print_button = $mw->new_button(-text => "Print", -command => \&printx, -font => "ansi 10 bold")->g_pack(); my $reset_frm = $mw->new_frame(); $reset_frm->g_pack(-fill => 'both'); my $reset_button = $reset_frm->new_button(-text => "Reset", -command => \&do_reset, -font => "ansi 10 bold")->g_p +ack(); Tkx::MainLoop(); sub printx { print $value unless $value eq '-'; } sub do_reset { $ent->delete(0, 'end'); } sub lam_num_error { Tkx::tk___mmessageBox(-message => "The input must be an integer.") +; } __END__

      :) You're still stuck in your

      If you run your program you'll get a nice error

      Can't call method "configure" without a package or object reference

      g_pack doesn't return an object

        Yes, I'm having such a hard time with this... I got the error but it points to line 10 which doesn't have a g_pack command? I don't understand what the problem is. Does this mean the g_pack for the entry didn't work?
