Tk::Wizard — a Wizard GUI framework in Perl
A GUI for step-by-step interactive logical process.
In the context of this Perl namespace, a Wizard is defined as a graphical user interface (GUI) that presents information, and possibly performs step-by-step tasks, possibly depending upon user input.
Tk::Wizard module automates a large part of the creation of a
wizard program to collect information and then perform some complex
tasks based upon it.
The wizard feel is largly based upon the Microsoft(TM,etc) wizard style:
the default is similar to that found in Microsoft Windows 95; a more
Windows 2000-like feel is also supported (see the "-style" entry in
"WIDGET-SPECIFIC OPTIONS".) Subclassing the module to provide different
look-and-feel is highly encouraged: please see "NOTES ON SUB-CLASSING
Important Changes To Previous Versions
Tk::WizardVersion 2.084, distribution 2.143, allows Wizard::addPage to accept same args as Wizard::blank_frame: see t/055_Pages.t
Tk::WizardVersion 2.131 moved some methods to new modules to keep in line with the original ethos as outlined in the POD. This should have no practical effect until verseion 3.00 but please read the documentation for the "import" method for further details.
Tk::Wizardversion 2.044 (distribution version 2.111), the -width and -height arguments to blank_frame() are applied to the /content area only/, not to the entire Wizard window. Look-up the Martin Thurn's
Tk::Wizard::Sizermodule to semi-automatically recalculate what you should pass in the
This module can be installed in the normal Perl way, such as one of:
perl -MCPAN -e "install Tk::Wizard" cpan Tk::Wizard cpanm Tk::Wizard # Or manually from source: perl Makefile.PL && make all test && make install
If you are on Windows you might have to use
nmake instead of make -
or you could try:
ppm install `Tk::Wizard`
If you set environment variable
TEST_INTERACTIVE to any non-zero
value, most of the tests will pause and you will have to click the
"Next" button several times to get through them.
