Manual Reference Pages - TK::TIXWM (3)
Tk::tixWm - Tixs addition to the standard TK wm command.
The <B>wmCaptureB> and the <B>wmReleaseB> methods change the
toplevel attribute of Tk widgets.
Converts the toplevel window specified by $widget into a non-toplevel
widget. Normally this command is called to convert a Toplevel widget
into a Frame widget. The newly-converted frame widget is
un-mapped from the screen. To make it appear inside its parent, you
must call a geometry manager (e.g. grid or pack) explictly.
Makes the non-toplevel window specified by $widget into a toplevel
widget. Normally this command is called to convert a Frame widget
into a Toplevel widget, but it can also be used on any
non-toplevel widget (e.g, label). The newly-converted toplevel window
is in a <B>withdrawnB> state. To make it appear on the screen, you must call
<B>deiconifyB> after calling <B>wmReleaseB>.
Any data associated with $widget via <B>wmB> methods (icon, protocol,
command etc.) are released, and must be re-established if window is later
<B>wmCaptureB> does not exist in the Win32 window manager code.
How these methods interact with perl/Tks class hierarchy is not yet clear.
In particular a <B>wmReleaseB>d window will not automatically inherit
the <B>Tk::WmB> methods, however a <B>wmCaptureB>d window still will.
(A <B>releaseB>d <B>LabelB> might make a good candidate for an <B>IconB>.)
