Tk::WidgetDemo(3) create a standard widget demonstration window.


use WidgetDemo;
my $TOP = $MW->WidgetDemo(
-name => $demo,
-text => 'Learn how to write a widget demonstration!',
-title => 'WidgetDemo Demonstration',
-iconname => 'WidgetDemo',
-geometry_manager => 'grid',
-font => $FONT,


This constructor builds a standard widget demonstration window, composed of three frames. The top frame contains descriptive demonstration text. The bottom frame contains the ``Dismiss'' and ``See Code'' buttons. The middle frame is demonstration container, which came be managed by either the pack or grid geometry manager.

The -text attribute is supplied to a Label widget, which is left-adjusted with -wraplength set to 4 inches. If you require different specifications then pass an array to -text; the first element is the text string and the remaining array elements are standard Label widget attributes - WidgetDemo will rearrange things as required..

    -text => ['Hello World!', qw/-wraplength 6i/],
