in reply to Insert checkbutton into MListbox

I'm not familiar with Mlistbox but after a quick perusal of the docs, it look like it is based on a Listbox primitive rather than one of the tix based List widgets. (TList, Hlist, tixGrid, etc.) Listboxs are designed and optimized to work with text items. I'm not sure if it is possible to make them work with other types of items without major aggravation.

For what it is worth, here is an example Checkbuttons in a TList (which IS a tix based List widget)

#!/usr/bin/perl use warnings; use strict; use Tk; use Tk::TList; my %tk; $tk{mw} = MainWindow->new; $tk{tlist} = $tk{mw}->TList( )->pack( -expand => 1, -fill => 'both', ); my @cbvar = ( 0, 1, 1, 0, 0 ); for ( 0 .. $#cbvar ){ $tk{"cb$_"} = $tk{tlist}->Frame; $tk{"cb$_"}->Checkbutton( -variable => \$cbvar[$_] )->pack( -side => 'left' ); $tk{"cb$_"}->Label( -text => " Checkbox $_ " )->pack( -side => 'left' ); $tk{tlist}->insert( 'end', -itemtype => 'window', -widget => $tk{"cb$_"}, ); } MainLoop;

[Corion]: Meh, first round of escalations for me not wanting to fix in production what a project has mismanaged. Now another project, which eats up all the resources until end of this year wants to take that task and put it on my list of things as well.
[Corion]: So now there will be the fun of me explaining to the project that $other_project had low priority because $project has high priority. If $project picks up the task from $other_project, they also will need to reprioritize my tasks to get that done...
[Corion]: ... of course at the cost of something else on my list of tasks for $project, as there only is a finite amount of days until $deadline.
