Scrollbars in Perl::Tk
I bumped into this old thread looking for a way to make my main window scrollable. Both the suggested solutions work for me, but both are incomplete. With the code posted, the frame remains a postage stamp sized rectangle in the middle of the mainwindow when the mainwindow is resized. I added the options (-fill => 'both', -expand => 1) to pack for the frame (and pane) and now things look as they should.
For some strange reason, Scrolled even shrinks the frame it's added to. If I run PodMaster's code as is, the frame is too small to fit all the text.
Here's what PodMaster's code generates for me:
Default view of the window generated after removing the scrollbars from the code: http://dl.dropbox.com/u/16377950/kepek/scrollframe_1.png
PodMaster's version with what are intended to be optional scrollbars: http://dl.dropbox.com/u/16377950/kepek/scrollframe_2.png - note that both scrollbars are showing up even though they should disappear when the window is this large, and that text is left off both vertically and horizontally.
After adding (-fill => 'both', -expand => 1): http://dl.dropbox.com/u/16377950/kepek/scrollframe_3.png - horizontal scrollbar disappeared as the window is wide enough to show all text, vertical scrollbar showing up.
