Tk Defining focus order for Return Key

Tk allows 'tab-key' ordering by the order in which you pack your widgets. One way to change this behaviour is to bind a key event to the focus method of the 'next' widget in line.

In this snippet, I bound the return key to the next 'Entry' widget in line. Uncomment the line noted in the code if you want to wrap around.

What time is it? It's Camel Time!

use Tk; use strict; use warnings; my $win = MainWindow->new(); $win->Button(-text=>'Other Window',-command=>\&otherwindow)->pack; sub otherwindow { my $otherwin = $win->Toplevel; my $foo = $otherwin->Entry->pack; my $bar = $otherwin->Entry->pack; my $baz = $otherwin->Entry->pack; &defineOrder($foo, $bar, $baz); } sub defineOrder { my $widget; for (my $i=0; defined( $_[$i+1] ); $i++) { $_[$i]->bind('<Key-Return>', [\&focus, $_[$i+1]]); } # Uncomment this line if you want to wrap around #$_[$#_]->bind('<Key-Return>', [\&focus, $_[0]]); $_[0]->focus; } sub focus { my ($tk, $self) = @_; $self->focus; } MainLoop();
