It sounds like you want to have a label next to your check box. Something
-text => "Click here to enable a great feature",
-name => "Viewby",
-left => 500,
-top => 32,
-width => 45,
-height => 16,
-text => "",
-name => "IconVW",
-left => 700,
-top => 32,
-width => 15,
-height => 14,
(I have not checked the distances so the text might be short of the
checkbox or even over run it).
For a different icon, something like
my $w_icon = new Win32::GUI::Icon("my.ico");
my $w_class = new Win32::GUI::Class(
-name => "MyUniqueWindowsGuiClass",
-icon => $w_icon,
$Window = new GUI::Window(
-name => "Window",
-text => "My App",
-width => 500,
-height => 600,
-left => $scr_width-650,
-top => $scr_height-550,
-style => WS_NORESIZE | WS_SYSMENU | WS_MINIMIZEBOX,
-class => $w_class,
The best references I've found for Win32::GUI are the examples that come
bundled in and this list (although last time I looked, the search facility
had stopped working on this list, which is a great shame).

I'm familiar with Perl, but I'm working on the first app I've built using
Win32::GUI. For the most part, I have everything functional, but a few
items I am having trouble finding, and would like a few pointers (and a few
pointers to some more good examples and references on GUI) on how to get
1. Can I add a caption, or prompt to a check box? Presently, I am
using a read-only text field. That's OK, but it just doesn't look like I
wanted it to look.
2. Can I replace that camel in the upper LH corner with my company's
logo? I've looked for an example, but have not found it addressed (at least
not in a way I recognize).
Any help would be appreciated - and a pointer to a good online reference
would be REALLY appreciated.
