I think we are getting close. Below is the sensor code that sends data to the Perl script. The perl script changes the state and color of the button. However my other button code still changes the color of the button whether the sensor is tripped or not.

if ($data =~ /(?<![\w-])ON(?![\w-])/i) { $btn1->configure(-background => "gray", -foreground => "black"); $btn1->configure(-state => "disabled"); print "ON\n"; } if ($data =~ /(?<![\w-])OFF(?![\w-])/i) { $btn1->configure(-background => "green", -foreground => "black"); $btn1->configure(-state => "normal"); print "OFF\n"; }

And this code below still changes the color of $btn1 whether it is disabled or not. It's fine to change the color when it's enabled. It's NOT fine to change the color when it's disabled.

sub chg_btn { $btn1->configure(-background => "green", -foreground => "black"); }

Use:  <p> text here (a paragraph) </p>
and:  <code> code here </code>
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 How to display code and escape characters are good places to start.
