Manual Reference Pages - TK::ROLE::HASWIDGETS (3)
Tk::Role::HasWidgets - keep track of your tk widgets
# store a button
$self->_set_w( my_button => $button );
# later on, in one of the methods
$self->_w( my_button )->configure( ... );
# when no longer needed:
$self->_del_w( my_button );
When programming Tk, its almost always a good idea to keep a
reference to the widgets that you created in the interface. Most of the
time, a simple hash is enough; but it is usually wrapped up in methods
to make the hash private to the window object. And of course, those
methods are duplicated in all modules, under a form or another.
Since duplication is bad, this module implements a Moose role
implementing those methods once and forever. This implies that your
class is using Moose in order to consume the role.
About the method names
The methods featured in this role begin with _, that is, they are
following Perl convention of private methods. This is on purpose:
remember that this method is a role, consumed by your class. And you
dont want those methods to be available outside of the window
class, do you?
$object->_set_w( $name, $widget );
Store a reference to $widget and associate it to $name.
my $widget = $object->_w( $name );
Get back the $widget reference associated to $name.
$object->_del_w( $name );
Delete the $name reference to a widget.
Empty the widget references.
