NAME ^

Tk::Scrolled - Create a widget with attached scrollbar(s)

SYNOPSIS ^

 $whatever = $parent->Scrolled(Whatever ?,-scrollbars=>where? ?,...?);

DESCRIPTION ^

To stop a flood of ScrlWhatever widgets Perl/Tk introcuded the special constructor Scrolled. Scrolled creates a widget of the given Class Whatever with attached scrollbar(s).

OPTIONS ^

All options beside -scrollbars explained below are passed to the Whatever widget constructor.

-scrollbars

Expects as argument the position where the scrollbars should be created: w, e or n, s or a combination of them. If the one or both positions are prefixed with o the scrollbar will only show up if there is a 'real' need to scroll.

ADVERTISED SUBWIDGETS ^

See "Subwidget" in Tk::mega how to use advertised widgets.

scrolled

the scrolled widget

widget

same as scrolled above. widget is the kind of widget passed to scrolled as first argument in all lowercase.

xscrollbar

the Scrollbar widget used for horizontal scrolling (if it exists)

yscrollbar

the Scrollbar widget used for vertical scrolling (if it exists)

corner

a frame in the corner between the vertical and horizontal scrolbar

BUGS ^

If a widget does not support -{x,y}scrollcommand options, Scrolled does not complain if the specified widget class does not support them. E.g.,

 $parent->Scrolled('Button', ...)

One does not get an error message or warning when one tries to configure scrollbars after the widget construction:

 $ascrolled->configure(-scrollbars => 'e');
