in reply to Refresh Display in Perl Tk

I think you need to actually change the text in the label. This should make it refresh. I would suggest looking at this. When I did VB applications this is what we had to do so I think it would be the same for Perl. This has not been tested and it is just my weekend ramblings.
#!/usr/bin/perl use strict; use Tk; my $top = new MainWindow; my $not_stopped = 1; my $id = ""; while($not_stopped){ $id = $top->Label(-text =>&gettime); sleep(10); }
