Estimated Tk monks

In the example below, I would like to keep the bindings provides by the Scrolled widget - when user clicks or or drags the scrollbar elements - but I'd like to be called so that I can add some behavior. Specifically, when user scrolls down to the last planet, I'd like to add to the list some exoplanets, for example. When called, I would also need to know/find out what is the current scroll position. Is there a general pattern for doing this in Tk? Pointers to doc, tutorials or working examples would be welcome.

#perl -w use strict; use Tk; my @planets = qw / Mercury Venus Earth Mars Jupiter Saturn Uranus Nept +un Pluto /; my $mw = MainWindow->new(); my $plist = $mw->Scrolled( "Listbox", -scrollbars => 'oe', -selectmode => 'single', -height => 4, -setgrid => 1 ); foreach my $planet (@planets) { $plist->insert( 'end', $planet ); } $plist->pack(); MainLoop();

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.
