Retiring, March 2020 - sorry, you have missed our final public course.
The Coronavirus situation has lead us to suspend public training - which was on the cards anyway, with no plans to resume

Please ask about private 'maintenance' training for Python, Tcl, Perl, PHP, Lua, etc
Happily continuing private consultancy / programming work
 
Writing a Tcl/Tk GUI is as easy as baking a cake

Designing a Graphic User Interface in Tcl/Tk is rather like writing a recipe.

With a recipe, you start off by listing the ingredients you need ... and in Tk you start off by defining your components (a.k.a. widgets).

With a recipe, you proceed to describe how the ingredients should be combined ... in Tk terms, that's when you feed them into a geometry manager to describe the relative positions of how they should be displayed.

Finally, a recipe may including serving suggestions. In Tk, you'll descibe some events and what action to take when the event happens.

This is a page archived from The Horse's Mouth at http://www.wellho.net/horse/ - the diary and writings of Graham Ellis. Every attempt was made to provide current information at the time the page was written, but things do move forward in our business - new software releases, price changes, new techniques. Please check back via our main site for current courses, prices, versions, etc - any mention of a price in "The Horse's Mouth" cannot be taken as an offer to supply at that price.
