Config::Model::TkUI - Tk GUI to edit config data through Config::Model
use Config::Model::TkUI; # init trace Log::Log4perl->easy_init($WARN); # create configuration instance my $model = Config::Model -> new ; my $inst = $model->instance (root_class_name => 'a_config_class', instance_name => 'test'); my $root = $inst -> config_root ; # Tk part my $mw = MainWindow-> new ; $mw->withdraw ; $mw->ConfigModelUI (-root => $root) ; MainLoop ;
This class provides a GUI for Config::Model.
File -> show unsaved changes. This list is cleared after performing a
File -> save.
Ctrl-F or use menu
Edit -> Search to open a search widget at the bottom of the window.
Enter a keyword in the entry widget and click on
The keyword will be searched in the configuration tree, in element name, in element value and in documentation.
The right side of the widget is either a viewer or an editor. When clicking on store in the editor, the new data is stored in the tree represented on the left side of TkUI. The new data will be stored in the configuration file only when
File-save> menu is invoked.
A wizard can be launched either with
File -> Wizard menu entry or with
Run Wizard button.
The wizard will scan the configuration tree and stop on all items flagged as important in the model. It will also stop on all erroneous items (mostly missing mandatory values).
Save modified data in configuration file. The callback function is called only if the save was done without error. The callback is called with
$@ in case of failed save.
- add tabular view ? - expand the whole tree at once - add plug-in mechanism so that dedicated widget can be used for some config Class (Could be handy for Xorg::ServerLayout)
