I am having problems with Perl/Tk windows. Certain ones have the feature that if you obscure them with another window - wholly or partially - then reveal them again, the window contents are missing - wholly or partially again. I have found this with both mySplashScreen and Message windows. How can I avoid this happening, or is this a "feature" of these objects? Sample code I have been using:
my $s = mySplashScreen -> new
-image => '',
-text => 'testing, one, two, three...'
for my $n (1 .. 10)
$s -> destroy;
my $mw = MainWindow -> new;
my $m = $mw -> Message (-text => "testing, one, two, three...") -> pac
$m -> update;
for my $n (1 .. 10)
$m -> destroy;
If this feature is unavoidable for these objects, is there an alternative type I can use? All I am trying to do is display a message window that remains on the screen while a called application (a scanner program) runs. I cannot believe how difficult it is to achieve something so basic. I have tried Google and turned up nothing for this.
