With astonishing indifference to thousands of existing Perl programs and newbies, some capricious genius at Gtk2 decided to disable by default all stock images displaying in buttons and it seems this is inherited by gtk2-perl since gtk+ 2.6. This generated large numbers of forum posts by puzzled users of course but nobody cares. This means stock images do not show in buttons unless explicitly turned on. I assume this applies to all widgets. Who knows. As usual there's little or no explanation, it's all got to be secret magic absorbed from the ether through experience and endless googling. I found something like the following in a snippet which, if I place this after creating my first button ($sortbutton) turns on the button image - weirdly - in a different button ($quitbutton) created later, $quitbutton is stock but $sortbutton is a stock gtk-refresh icon placed in an iconfactory with a custom label.
my $button = $sortbutton; my %buttonimages; $buttonimages{$button}=$button->get_settings; $buttonimages{$button}->set('gtk-button-images', !$buttonimages{$butto +n}->get('gtk-button-images'));
1. Despite referencing only one button ($sortbutton) this seems to turn on the images for other stock buttons (all of them?). Why? Is it supposed to? 2. How do I propagate this setting to the icon factory images? Or can I just change the label on a stock button image without an icon factory? 3. What is that second argument doing: !$buttonimages{$button}->get('gtk-button-images') Thanks
