I guess this list is new, and the archive not accessible yet, so my
apologies if my question has been asked before.
I've just "discovered" Win32::GUI, and think it is just great to be able
to write Windows GUI programs using perl. So I had a couple
applications in mind, and started writing! It seems that Win32::GUI is
quite strong enough to handle the first one completely, although I've
not yet finished the complete program, I've finished most of the user
The other one needs to do some background monitoring, in addition to
supporting a user interface. To do that, it seems like a timer would be
the documented metaphor for doing such monitoring using the Win32::GUI
package. I attempted to initiate a timer, and got an error about "Your
vendor hasn't supplied a timer...", so either I must have done something
wrong (quite possible) or Timer maybe isn't supported yet in Win32::GUI?
Does someone know for sure if Timer is supported? Does someone have
some code that illustrates a working Timer? Maybe I just went about it
Even if you're on the right track,
you'll get run over if you just sit there.
