For 2023 (and 2024 ...) - we are now fully retired from IT training.
We have made many, many friends over 25 years of teaching about Python, Tcl, Perl, PHP, Lua, Java, C and C++ - and MySQL, Linux and Solaris/SunOS too. Our training notes are now very much out of date, but due to upward compatability most of our examples remain operational and even relevant ad you are welcome to make us if them "as seen" and at your own risk.

Lisa and I (Graham) now live in what was our training centre in Melksham - happy to meet with former delegates here - but do check ahead before coming round. We are far from inactive - rather, enjoying the times that we are retired but still healthy enough in mind and body to be active!

I am also active in many other area and still look after a lot of web sites - you can find an index ((here))

Tcl/Tk module T219
Drawing on Canvases
Exercises, examples and other material relating to training module T219. This topic is presented on public courses Learning to program in Tcl, Tcl/Tk, Tcl Programming

Tcl/Tk GUIs consist largely of components such as buttons, labels entry boxes and sliders. Sometimes you'll need something that's much more graphic and for this you'll use a canvas widget. You can write to a canvas down to individual pixel level, and you can also draw lines, ovals, rectangles, text and polygons. This module studies the options for drawing to and manipulating a canvas, and introduces computer graphic techniques such as world to pixel co-ordinate transformations and display list manipulation.

There are all sorts of ways to look at the survey data we gathered last October on the TransWilts trains, and one fact I'm particularly interested in is the journey lengths of passengers.

2211Tcl/Tk - why does the canvas widget use a display list?
"Tcl/Tk uses a display list when you draw on a canvas widget." OK - so what does that really mean?
