In my view, Win32::GUI is very capable - much more capable
than first impressions. It can be used to build large applications. There are a
few issues with some of the controls missing basic functionality, but this is
changing all the time. The major problem - in my view -
is with documentation and examples - but hopefully this is being addressed
As for your points (for what it's worth!):
1) Not sure what you mean by selecting the greyed color
2) Not sure if you can change colors in a listview - however,
look at the grid control:
3) You can change the colors in the progress bar - make
sure you have the latest version of Win32::GUI
4) The status bar - you can control the size, just like any
other control (Height, Width methods when the window resizes). If you have the
latest version, you can split the status bar into parts, set icons and text to
each part etc.

Subject: [perl-win32-gui-users] Listview
Colors and Buttons Images...
I am still trying everything in the GUI packages and I have some
questions that I can not find a clue:
1)-When I use image on
button, if you disable the button, the button is
Is there a solution to select the grayed color or
$SaveAsImage = new GUI::Bitmap('saveas.bmp',0,22,
-text => "Save
-left => 510,
2)-Is there a way to switch between colors in the Listview,
each row with different color
I can not even change the
Listview foreground and background colors:
-text => "",
=> WS_CHILD | WS_VSCROLL|WS_HSCROLL| 1,
-checkboxes => 1, # see ItemCheck(INDEX)
#-hottrack => 1,
-background => $BGColor,
=> "First Name",
How to change the colors or Not.
4)- The status bar, you can not
control its size or location, looks normal!.
5)- If I use the
AddGroupBox to pack a group of controls, works very fine
except it disables
the functions on the kids like the colors and Tabs.
6)-The Textfield in
Multiline mode, does not accept Enter when it is
AddGroupBox, it only accepts Ctrl+Tab, any work around for this.
would be very nice if anyone how has a good experiance and built a
using this GUI if he post a some code to help others
understand the clues of
instead of everyone new is just
trying and guessing.
