Unless you're talking Tk or some other window manager interface, you can't do UI like that with Perl...? I'm sure you know this so maybe I don't understand the question.

If you're looking for the most Desktop-like JS lib for web stuff, it's ExtJS. It was a fork from YUI originally, IIRC, and it's feature rich if a little on the large side. There are two examples of using it with Cat here: Getting started with ExtJS screen library and Catalyst with Ext+Ajax: Editable Data Grids.

FWIW, there are a couple of really hot jQuery (my pet lib) plugins that do some of the same things (like live data tables and dojo-style comboboxes). Though jQuery plays nicely with ExtJS and other libs so you can mix and match.

(update: downcased k in Tk; linked jQuery.)

    I know there must be some JavaScript involved, but at least some of that may be generated by its Perl counterpart. Which would be what I'd like best. I'll definitely have a look at ExtJS, I'd rather not mix&match until I feel comfortable with one of them :-) Thanks!
