in thread Wx with Tk

Interpreting your English, was a good lesson for me, in how to convey information. I thought "this must be an intelligent person", to get that message across without knowing English. :-)

Anyways, to your problem. I am almost sure there is a plain WxCanvas, the GLCanvas is probably an extra type. Google for "Wx canvas".

So, why not just use the WxCanvas, instead of a Tk::Canvas? I think you are mistaken to believe that Wx dosn't have a 2d canvas widget. So google for "WxPerl canvas", and you can be pure Wx. The only reason to keep Tk is if you have some complex Tk::Canvas code that you want to use, but don't quite want to rewrite it in Wx. ;-)

But if you want to go that mixed route, just setup a timer in Wx

use Tk qw/MainLoop tkinit DoOneEvent exit DONT_WAIT ALL_EVENTS/; #.... setup your Tk code without a MainLoop statement #then in your Wx timer, put $mw->DoOneEvent( DONT_WAIT | ALL_EVENTS ); # to make Tk responsive

Tk FBox utf8 problem solved!
by Khariton (Sexton) on Nov 24, 2010 at 19:16 UTC
    We are must going in another way...
    I solve my problem in another way. May be this will be usefull for another men who using Tk Fbox.pm and need using utf-8 filenames.
    I must using Tk and Wx in one code.But from Wx I use only Filedialog. Why I must use Wx FileDialog?
    Because Tk has embeded problem with UTF-8 filenames. It shows in IconList dialog broken filenames if codepage of filenames different than iso8859-1...
    If I use in my code
    use encoding 'utf8';
    then IconList shows true but I can't choose folders with utf8 names and choosed filename in filedialog shows as ?????.???
    In end of page http://search.cpan.org/~srezic/Tk-804.029/pod/UserGuide.pod I find this:
    Unfortunately, there are still places in Perl ignorant of Unicode. One of these places are filenames. Consequently, the file selectors in Perl/Tk do not handle encoding of filenames properly. Currently they suppose that filenames are in iso-8859-1 encoding, at least on Unix systems. As soon as Perl has a concept of filename encodings, then Perl/Tk will also implement such schemes.
    Early I can't resolve this problem but after You hint for MyMenuButton module(http://www.perlmonks.org/?node_id=866575) I get method how I can resolve my problem.
    I found this:
    1. If I remove all about encoding in FBox(it has only 8859-1 codepage support).
    2. If I add in FBox module
    use encoding 'utf8';
    then all works fine.
    By Your method I insert new MyFBox module in my code. And some corrects in fdialog design for my wishes. I can adding some png pictures instead standart bitmaps...
    Thank You for help!
      Hey, thanks for reporting this solution. To be honest, if I was starting a big project, I would use Gtk2... the code is much more up-to-date.

        I find new problem: FDialog has problem(working with folders) in Win32.
        I will write correct code to getting work version of this procedure...
        About GTK2: I read this module has problem for working on Win32 platform?
