    $text->get(qw/ sel.first sel.last/) works if i highlight the text after i find it, but Tkx::FindBar already highlights the text so i should only have to hit enter to put it in a variable. i have setup my text widget to bind to enter. ex: $text->g_bind('<Return>',sub{ name = $text->get(qw/sel.first sel.last/);print "$name\n"});

      Is there a question in there?

        yes after finding the text using Tkx::FindBar i still have to hightlight it again and hit enter before i can get the result in a variable
