This is actually VERY easy to do, if you use some of the options to LABEL.

Add ,-width=>15,-anchor=>'w' to your Label definitions and it will look much better.

Modified code:

#!/usr/bin/perl use strict; use Tk; my $btypes; my $locations; my $bstats; my $mw; $mw = MainWindow->new; $mw->geometry("400x300"); $mw->title("First App"); my $frmTop = $mw->Frame(-bd => 2,-relief => 'ridge')->pack(-side => 't +op', -fill => 'x', -pady => 3); # Location label/entry my $frmLocations = $frmTop->Frame(-bd => 2)->pack(-side => 'top', -fil +l => 'y'); my $lblLocationsID = $frmLocations->Label(-text => "Locations",-width= +>15,-anchor=>'w')->pack(-side => 'left'); my $edtLocationsID = $frmLocations->Entry(-textvariable => \$locations +,-background => 'white')->pack(-side => 'left'); # type label/entry my $frmLocations = $frmTop->Frame(-bd => 2)->pack(-side => 'top', -fil +l => 'y'); my $lblBtypeID = $frmLocations->Label(-text => "Types",-width=>15, -an +chor=>'w' )->pack(-side => 'left'); my $edtBtypeID = $frmLocations->Entry(-textvariable => \$btypes,-backg +round => 'white')->pack(-side => 'left'); MainLoop;
