canvas border

Posted by arealnewbie (arealnewbie), 27 July 2004
hi I've a problem when I create canvas : everytime my canvas are surrounded with a "border" of approximatively 2 pixels with the color of the palette :I've noticed that when I change the value of tk_palette the color of the "border" is changed with the new value.
I've tried to set the options :
-bg $colorIwant -fg $colorIwant -bd 0 for the canvas and its parent (a frame) but the "border" is always display.
How can I force it to disappear?

PS : I can't change the tk_palette setting because I need it elsewhere

Could be an issue with the canvas or with the container.

Try on the canvas
      -borderwidth 0

and if you're packing, try
      -fill both -expand yes

or is you're gridding, try
      -sticky news

your solutions don't work but I've setted -highlightbackground  $myColor -selectbackground $myColor for the canvas and it works
