DESCRIPTION

Weaving::Tablet::Tk wraps a Tk user interface around the core routines in Weaving::Tablet.

Weaving::Tablet::Tk is a subclass of Weaving::Tablet.

new

The new function expects arguments as key/value pairs.

The key "mw" is always expected. If not present, a new MainWindow is created. If present, it is the parent for a new Toplevel window.

The key "file" identifies a pattern file to be loaded. If a pattern cannot be loaded from that file, undef is returned.

The keys "cards" and "rows" specify the size of a new, blank pattern.

If the "file" key is not provided, a blank pattern is created, with a default size of 1 row by 1 card.

The window and the drawing canvas are available via member functions.

Member Functions

You can retrieve the Toplevel window via the "window" member. You can retrieve the drawing canvas via the "canvas" member.
