NAME

Tk::LabFrame - labeled frame.

CONTENTS

SYNOPSIS

<B>use Tk::LabFrame;B>

$f = $parent-><B>LabFrameB>(?<B>-labelB>=>text, <B>-labelsideB>=>where, ...?);

DESCRIPTION

<B>LabFrameB> is exactly like <B>FrameB> and additionaly allows to add a label to the frame.

WIDGET-OPTIONS

<B>LabFrameB> supports the same options as the Frame widget.

Additional options of <B>LabFrameB> are:
<B>-fontB> => font Specifies the label’s font
<B>-foregroundB> => color Specifies the label’s foreground color
<B>-labelB> => text The text of the label to be placed with the Frame.
<B>-labelsideB> => where Where can be one of <B>leftB>, <B>rightB>, <B>topB>, <B>bottomB> or <B>acrosstopB>. The first four work as might be expected and place the label to the left, right, above or below the frame respectively. The <B>acrosstopB> creates a grooved frame around the central frame and puts the label near the northwest corner such that it appears to overwrite the groove.
<B>-labelvariableB> => scalar_ref Specifies a reference to a variable and used as an alternative to -label. If the value of the variable changes, then the widget will be updated automatically to reflect the change. Used like -textvariable.

ADVERTISED SUBWIDGETS

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

  Frame used to display the border

  Frame used to create new LabFrame children.

EXAMPLE

Run the following test program to see this in action:



    use strict;
    use Tk;
    require Tk::LabFrame;
    require Tk::LabEntry;

    my $test = Test this;
    my $mw = Tk::MainWindow->new;
    my $f = $mw->LabFrame(-label => "This is a label",
                           -labelside => "acrosstop");
    $f->LabEntry(-label => "Testing", -textvariable => \$test)->pack;
    $f->pack;
    Tk::MainLoop;



BUGS

Perhaps <B>LabFrameB> should be subsumed within the generic pTk labeled widget mechanism.
