in thread Center a Tk window on the screen

Yeah - that's fine. I was going to put something in the help about how you could turn autohide on if you want to use fullscreen. At any rate, it's nice to have the option, for those that don't mind tweaking things a bit to use it.

This is what I ended up using and it works well, excluding the stay-on-top thing (tested on SuSE 8.0 (5.6.1) and Win98 (ActiveState-5.8.0):

if ($s->{fullscreen}) { $s->{fullscreen} = 0; $w->{main}->withdraw; $w->{main}->update; $w->{main}->overrideredirect(0); $w->{main}->geometry($s->{windowed}||"800x600+20+20"); $w->{main}->deiconify; $w->{main}->update; } else { $s->{fullscreen} = 1; $s->{windowed} = $w->{main}->geometry; $w->{main}->withdraw; $w->{main}->update; $w->{main}->overrideredirect(1); $w->{main}->geometry($w->{main}->screenwidth."x".$w->{main}->scree +nheight."+0+0"); $w->{main}->deiconify; $w->{main}->update; }
