( #3333=superdoc: print w/replies, xml ) Need Help??
Tricky problem. I threw together some code that *almost* works. Feel free to expand on this. Current bugs I have noticed are:
1) Backspace and delete should be re-mapped to one another (to account for the backwords nature of the writing).
2) Sometime it just plain goofs, and doesn't print letters in the proper (reversed) order. This bug seems to have something to do with using the mouse to change cursor position, but I can't tell for sure.
3) cursor keys will not navigate properly.
#!/usr/bin/perl use strict; use warnings; use Tk; my $mw = MainWindow->new( -background=>"darkviolet" ); my $t1 = $mw->Text( -background=>"navy", -foreground=>"white", -height=>35, -width=>80, -wrap=>"word", -selectbackground=>"blueviolet" )->pack; $t1->bind("<KeyRelease>" => sub {$t1->SetCursor('current - 1 chars')}) +; MainLoop;


edit: I think I figured bug 2 out... text is printed out of order if you hit a second key before the first key is released. Unfortunately, switching KeyRelease with KeyPress doesn't make everything work. Text is still sometimes out of order, for no apparant reason.

Title:
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.
