( [id://3333]=superdoc: print w/replies, xml ) Need Help??


I've found what I consider to be a bug in Tk::Text 3.044 as provided with ActiveState on Windows.

The .pm file states that Greg London is the maintainer - as of 1999 - but has no other contact info.

Anyhow, the bug is that you can't amend the widget (with the insert method for example) whilst the control has a state of 'disabled'. Whilst this may seem reasonable, it does not hold true for other Tk widgets like Tk::Entry (which I would consider a basic widget).

The workaround is simple:

# enable the control for changing $text->configure(-state => 'normal'); # do any changes $text->insert('end', 'text'); # restore state $text->configure(-state => 'disabled');

So, the wisdom I seek is, has anyone else noticed this, has it been fixed in a later version, who should I contact?

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.
