Below is a simple Perl/Tk program that creates a button and calls getOpenFile when the button is used.
This has the –filetypes option so that different sets of files can be displayed.
This test works as required in that as the pull down menu for ‘File of type’ is used I see the set of file corresponding to the option chosen.
However, when I use the org_select sub in a bigger application, the pull down menu for file type does not work and any selection results in no files being shown.
Can anyone explain how to overcome this?
use strict "vars"; use Tk; my ($mw); sub org_select { my $filetypes = [ ['Drawing Files', '.drg'], ['All files', '*'] ]; my $select_file_full = $mw->getOpenFile( -filetypes => $filetypes); } $mw = MainWindow->new; $mw->Button(-text => 'Select File', -command => \&org_select )->pack; MainLoop;
