Example

Instead of WxPanel try naming your panel label_panel or left_label_panel ... naming your widgets/controls descriptively is important

One way of keeping track (what goes where) is naming your sizer/container elements by position, and incorporating the parent/child relationship into the name. Afterwards you incorporate your action elements (text/buttons) and name then by purpose/property/action (email_input/email_text,submit_button,cancel_button... )

I like Wx :) Re: wxPerl: is BitmapFromImage implemented? (no;sleep;docs), my wxWidgets / wxPerl / wxGlade tutorial, http://www.wxperl.it/p/wxperl-primer.html , wxperl_usage / wxperl-usage / wxPerl::Usage / Class Method Browser , available methods, method invocation syntax, link to docs, Re^8: How to use wxHtmlEasyPrinting (On debugging, verify everything, talk to teddybear ... and links and links , Tutorials: Perl documentation documentation, Searching Perl Documentation

you don't need to build wx yourself, http://www.citrusperl.com/, http://ppm.wxperl.it/

What Do These Sizer Things Do?
