NAME

Tk::Scrolled - Create a widget with attached scrollbar(s)  

SYNOPSIS

    $whatever = $parent->Scrolled(Whatever ?,-scrollbars=>where? ?,...?);  

DESCRIPTION

To stop a flood of ScrlWhatever widgets Perl/Tk introcuded the special constructor Scrolled. Scrolled creates a widget of the given Class Whatever with attached scrollbar(s).  

OPTIONS

All options beside -scrollbars explained below are passed to the Whatever widget constructor.
-scrollbars
Expects as argument the position where the scrollbars should be created: w, e or n, s or a combination of them. If the one or both positions are prefixed with o the scrollbar will only show up if there is a 'real' need to scroll.
 

ADVERTISED SUBWIDGETS

See ``Subwidget'' in Tk::mega how to use advertised widgets.
scrolled

BUGS

If a widget does not support -{x,y}scrollcommand options, Scrolled does not complain if the specified widget class does not support them. E.g.,

    $parent->Scrolled('Button', ...)

One does not get an error message or warning when one tries to configure scrollbars after the widget construction:

    $ascrolled->configure(-scrollbars => 'e');
