in reply to Using Tk::BrowseEntry Options

antioch, from your previous post I'll assume that you're still talking about using ActiveState on Windows. You really should include that sort of information on each question you ask because most people don't remember all of the previous postings for every monk. I only remember because I try to follow all new threads on Tk. Oh yeah, you should also mention which version of Tk you have too, just to be thorough.

I have some unfortunate news for you, many of the options in Perl/Tk simply do not work in M$ Windows. They were originally written and tested against X-Windows usually, and the framework for M$ doesn't allow many of them (arrowimage is one I've tried working with before and failed too).

If you have access, try your options out on a Linux or UNIX system. Let us know if they do or do not work there, along with which OS and windowing manager used. I'd wager that you'll find they work as advertised there, whereas The Evil Empire does not allow it's various file-browse and dialog boxes to be altered outside of their standards.
