( #3333=superdoc: print w/replies, xml ) Need Help??
UPDATE1: See my first response below for solution to problem #1. Still looking for solution to problem #2.
UPDATE2: Problem #2 was resolved by replacing "Tk::NoteBook" with "Tk::DynaTabFrame", which has the required features, plus much more.

The example code below creates 3 Tk Notebook widget tabs in a Toplevel window. None of the tabs have focus, which means the contents must be clicked on before scrolling can occur. The Notebook tabs can only be navigated by clicking on the tab headers.

My questions are:

  1. How can each Notebook tab be given the focus so they are immediately scrollable without having to click on the contents?
  2. How can the Notebook tabs be navigated by using the keyboard TAB key (and Shift-TAB for reverse navigation)?

TIA for your help.

#!/usr/bin/perl use strict; use warnings; use Tk; use Tk::Menu; use Tk::More; use Tk::NoteBook; my $mw = MainWindow->new(); $mw->geometry("100x100+850+50"); $mw->iconify; my $bw = $mw->Toplevel(); $bw->geometry("850x200+500+200"); $bw->bind('<Destroy>' => sub {exit;}); $bw->bind('<Escape>' => sub {exit;}); my $book = $bw->NoteBook()->pack( -fill=>'both', -expand=>1 ); my $tab1 = $book->add( "Sheet 1", -label=>"Tab #1" ); my $more1 = $tab1->Scrolled("More", -scrollbars => "osoe" )->pack(-fil +l => "both", -expand => 1); my $menu1 = $more1->menu; $bw->configure(-menu => $menu1); $more1->Load( $0 ); my $tab2 = $book->add( "Sheet 2", -label=>"Tab #2" ); my $more2 = $tab2->Scrolled("More", -scrollbars => "osoe" )->pack(-fil +l => "both", -expand => 1); my $menu2 = $more2->menu; $bw->configure(-menu => $menu2); $more2->Load( $0 ); my $tab3 = $book->add( "Sheet 3", -label=>"Tab #3" ); my $more3 = $tab3->Scrolled("More", -scrollbars => "osoe" )->pack(-fil +l => "both", -expand => 1); my $menu3 = $more3->menu; $bw->configure(-menu => $menu3); $more3->Load( $0 ); MainLoop;

Use:  <p> text here (a paragraph) </p>

to format your post; it's "PerlMonks-approved HTML":

  • Are you posting in the right place? Check out Where do I post X? to know for sure.
  • Posts may use any of the Perl Monks Approved HTML tags. Currently these include the following:
    <code> <a> <b> <big> <blockquote> <br /> <dd> <dl> <dt> <em> <font> <h1> <h2> <h3> <h4> <h5> <h6> <hr /> <i> <li> <nbsp> <ol> <p> <small> <strike> <strong> <sub> <sup> <table> <td> <th> <tr> <tt> <u> <ul>
  • Snippets of code should be wrapped in <code> tags not <pre> tags. In fact, <pre> tags should generally be avoided. If they must be used, extreme care should be taken to ensure that their contents do not have long lines (<70 chars), in order to prevent horizontal scrolling (and possible janitor intervention).
  • Want more info? How to link or or How to display code and escape characters are good places to start.
