use UI::Dialog::GNOME; my $d = new UI::Dialog::GNOME ( title => 'Default title', height => 20, width => 65 , listheight => 5, order => [ 'zenity', 'xdialog' ] ); # Either a Zenity or Xdialog msgbox widget should popup, # with a preference for Zenity. $d->msgbox( title => 'Welcome!', text => 'Welcome one and all!' );
UI::Dialog::GNOME is simply another meta-class for UI::Dialog. This class simply has a different order of priority than UI::Dialog and no console support.
This class is simply a nice way to try and ensure a GNOME based widget set. The editbox() widget is also provided in addition to the standard widgets as both the XDialog and Zenity backends effectively support it's usage. If you are still using GDialog and not Zenity (which provides a very nice gdialog wrapper) the editbox() widget will cause your application to die with a "missing method editbox()" error.
my $d = new( title => 'Default Title', backtitle => 'Backtitle', width => 65, height => 20, listheight => 5, order => [ 'zenity', 'xdialog', 'gdialog' ] );
This is the Class Constructor method. It accepts a list of key => value pairs and uses them as the defaults when interacting with the various widgets.
A blessed object reference of the UI::Dialog::GNOME class.
The (...)'s after each option indicate the default for the option.
$d->editbox( path => '/path/to/a/text/file' );
