in reply to Win32::FileOp window positioning?

You cannot use anchor popup to do that.
But there are work around, for example you can draw the dialog box like this at 50x50 screen coord*:
use Tk; $mw = MainWindow -> new; $openbutton = $mw -> Button ( -text => 'Open', -command => \&opensub, )-> pack; sub opensub { $top = $mw ->Toplevel; $top -> wm('geometry', '0x0+50+50'); $top->overrideredirect(1); $type_file = [['GIF Image', '.gif'], ['JPG Image', '.jpg']]; $file_openned = $top->getOpenFile(-filetypes => $type_file, -title => 'Choose an image', -defaultextension => \$type_file); } MainLoop;

Hope this help.

    Wow, thanks Didier, that's a really neat trick! I can see lots of uses for that already! The problem is, though, you used getOpenFile, and I need to use the OpenDialog, SaveAsDialog, and BrowseForFolder. Still a neat trick, though.

[Corion]: Naah, I think it's still an OK show so far. Their new songs aren't exactly great, but I'm not going there for new material anyway ;)
[marto]: I got the feeling from the last show that for big sections of it, they were not really into what they were doing
[Corion]: LanX: Sure, they can bask in my Halo
[marto]: more so than the previous show I saw
[Corion]: marto: Well, I think they go a tour every two years and I think it's hard to even get a connection with the crowd at a 20k people concert... But maybe after this time I'll stop too ;)
[Corion]: I still have to see the Pet Shop Boys live before they stop touring at all
[marto]: yeah, I think that as a group creatively they're done. I can understand how it'd be hard to stop the process, album/tour, album/tour, if that's pretty much all you've ever done :)
[marto]: Corion yes I saw them Pandemonium_Tour
[Corion]: marto: Yeah, and I doubt that they'll ever get back to something like Violator/Songs of Faith and Devotion - it would either alienate their "regular" crowd, or be "too much Violator" ;)
