Well I just made the minimal changes to make packing work. The way you would normally do it, is pack sub-frames into frames. So I just packed the widgets to side=>left with some padding. But a better way, would be to make separate little frames, one for each label and entry combo ( or whatever), assign them default widths, and pack the frames into the frames. It's more work than I cared to do on a Sunday morning, :-) but that is how you usually do it. The trick with frame packing is to remember that the frame gets it's size from the widgets it contains, so if you want to maintain a frame's width, you must set a widget in it with a -width=>$somemin.

The sprintf on the digits was the easiest way out, but you could have set them in there own frame, set an alignment on the label packing, and give a -width to the label, to hold it steady.

Of course in a GUI app, half your time is spent making it appear and resize correctly, and pack makes that easier in the long run.

Use:  <p> text here (a paragraph) </p>

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.
