NAME

Tk::tixWm - Tix’s addition to the standard TK wm command.

CONTENTS

SYNOPSIS

$widget-><B>wmCaptureB>

$widget-><B>wmReleaseB>

DESCRIPTION

The <B>wmCaptureB> and the <B>wmReleaseB> methods change the toplevel attribute of Tk widgets.

METHODS

$widget-><B>wmCaptureB> 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.
$widget-><B>wmReleaseB> 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 re-captured.

BUGS

<B>wmCaptureB> does not exist in the Win32 window manager code.

How these methods interact with perl/Tk’s 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>.)
