Subject: tk using multiple monitors with dropdownmenus
Download (untitled) / with headers
text/plain 707b
are there known issues with perl tk using multiple monitors like using software (GUI) that got moved to monitor 2 or 3 causes dropdownmenus (example Modul Tk-JBrowseEntry, see picture, move the window to screen 2 and click on dropdown, the list is on screen1 not screen2) to open on monitor1 or similiar behavior? example code: use Tk; use Tk::JBrowseEntry; my $mw = MainWindow->new; $mw->title("Dropdowntest"); my $var; my $widget = $mw->JBrowseEntry( -label => 'Normal:', -variable => \$var, -state => 'normal', -choices => [qw(pigs cows foxes goats)], -width => 12 )->pack( -side => 'top', -pady => '10', -anchor => 'w'); MainLoop;

Hi Stefan,      I don't have a dual-monitor setup, but i have seen this happen sometimes & seems like i did something to keep it from happening as much - something a/b calculating the posn of the popup relative to the widget locn, but don't remember.  What happens if you substitute Tk's regular BrowseEntry widget instead?  There are several annoyances in Perl/Tk and i don't think any of them will ever get fixed, since it's author Nick Ing Simmons is deceased (God rest his soul).  Let me know if BrowseEntry works ok, then if i can figure out what's wrong w/JBrowseEntry, i'll see if i can fix it.

the bug is even in Tk::BrowseEntry :-(
Issue confirmed to be up-stream - can't/won't fix. Jim
