Finally got Tk working (nobody told me to read the instructions first:)
and have been whanging away at learning it for a week or so. Actually I
am trying to find a replacement for the apparently abandoned Kylix.
Anyway, I was learning by porting over one of my most used projects, one
that has a large text(box) widget as the main component and everything was
going great - in fact, it is still going great except that I suddenly
noticed that the vertical scrollbar for the text box is on the WRONG side
- left instead of right.
No problem, I just whipped out my new copy of Mastering Perl/TK (If you
are also a newbie, you have to get this book - it is really good) and went
to the very large chapter on text widgets and looked for the
Nothing. Then I looked in the scroll widget stuff. Still nothing.
Either the info is not there or I can't recognise the form that it is in.
Plus, all the pictures of text and other text holding widgets in the book
show the vertical scrollbar to be on the right side. And the few examples
that I can find on the web also have it in the usual place.
This is obviously something so simple that the authors don't think it even
needs to be discussed. Can anyone clue me in?
