If you want to change the action of the button every time it is pressed, then you need to leave out the -command switch and bind the 'ButtonPress' action later. This will allow you to re-bind the action once you have pressed the button. Here's an example:

#!/usr/bin/perl use strict; use warnings; use Tk; my $main = MainWindow->new; my $text = $main->Scrolled('Text', -width=>'50' )->pack; my $button = $main->Button(-text=>'next', )->pack; $button->bind('<ButtonPress>', \&one); MainLoop; sub one { my $talk="One! Click for two.\n"; $text -> insert('1.0',"$talk"); $button->bind('<ButtonPress>', \&two); } sub two { my $talk="One! Click for three.\n"; $text -> insert('1.0',"$talk"); $button->bind('<ButtonPress>', \&three); } sub three { my $talk="One! Click for one.\n"; $text -> delete('1.0', 'end'); $text -> insert('1.0',"$talk"); $button->bind('<ButtonPress>', \&one); }


What time is it? It's Camel Time!

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.
