Well basically the MainWindow has a button to create a results window and by design I want it to be able to create more than one window with results (for camparison etc).
 
The new results window is created like this -
 
$ResultsWindow = new GUI::Window(
  -title    => "Results",
  -left     => 400,
  -top      => 100,
  -width    => 185,
  -height   => 360,
  -style  => WS_MINIMIZEBOX | WS_CAPTION | WS_SYSMENU ,
  -name     => "ResultsWin",
 );
 
I then add a text area and a 'Close' button to this window.
 
The close button is added like this -
 
 $ResultsWindow->AddButton(
  -name => "Close",
  -text => "Close",
  -left => 5,
  -top => 5,
  -tip => "Click here to close the results view",
  -cancel => 1,
 );
 
 
The subroutine for the click event looks like this -
 
sub Close_Click {
    $ResultsWindow->Hide();
}
 
 
The reason I use hide if because I dont know of a better way of getting rid of Windows?!
 
Clicking the close button then closes the last window created.
 
Help?

Can we get some sample code to see how you're handling the window creation / closing?

All,
 
I have a gui window that can spawn multiple child windows, each with its own 'Close' button on it.  The close button works fine if there is only one child window but fails to work if there are more than one.  I understand why this is happening but cannot think of a good way around it! 
 
Anyone have any ideas or can point out the obvious?
 
Cheers,
 
 

Darin

There may be a better way, but here are two possible ways:
 
### THIS WILL BRING UP THE SAME PRINT WINDOW AS USED BY WEB BROWSER
 
  $dll = "$ENV{'WINDIR'}/System32/mshtml.dll";       
  system("rundll32.exe $dll,PrintHTML $file");
 
 
-OR-
 
 
### THIS MAY OR MAY NOT GIVE THE BEST RESULTS
 
  system("copy $file \\\\ServerName\\PrinterName");
 
 
Good luck.

All,
 
 
I have a Perl application that uses Win32::GUI to provide a nice front end for a database, what I would really like to do is provide a print feature with the ability to print to a network printer through the gui.  Does anyone know of any way to do this?
 
Cheers,

Darin
