perl/tk widget: how can I add the 'scrolling' option?

perl/tk widget: how can I add the 'scrolling' option?

how can I create a window with a 'scroll' function?
I mean like when you write <SCROLLING="yes"> at the top of an HTML page.
in my case, it's not html. I have too many boxes and text in my frame, and I can't manage to enable this scrolling function in my window (to view the rest of the window, which is hidden from my screen).
thanks a lot.

RE: perl/tk widget: how can I add the 'scrolling' option?

You must use a scrolled widget...

$scrolled = $parent->Scrolled(widgetClass...);

For example

$dest_box = $LeftFrame -> Scrolled(Listbox, -height=>6, -scrollbars=>'e');

RE: perl/tk widget: how can I add the 'scrolling' option?

okey, thanks.

but the problem is that I want to scroll a 'Frame', 'a window', like when you scroll any window in any environment. I mean a group of widgets, not a listbox. a group of labels, entries. But the 'Frame' widget does not support the 'yscrollcommand' option. what can I do? argh!

RE: perl/tk widget: how can I add the 'scrolling' option?

I ran into this a while back and ended up scrolling a canvas and then dropping the other widgets onto the canvas.  This is a little tedious, but, it worked and the coding went reasonably quickly once I figured out the syntactic patterns.  Sorry, I can put my hands (mouse) on the few examples I have of this.  If  I find one, I'll post it.

keep the rudder amid ship and beware the odd typo
