For 2023 - 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 Our training notes are now very much out of date, but due to upward compatability most of our examples remain operational and even relevant ad you are welcome to make us if them "as seen" and at your own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 T224
Events in Tk
Exercises, examples and other material relating to training module T224. This topic is presented on public courses Learning to program in Tcl, Tcl/Tk, Extra Day, Tcl Programming

Events are what happen in TK when a button is pressed, the cursor moves over your window, or your window resizes...amongst other things. Some events (such as a subtle change of colour as you move over a button) are provided by default. You provide action for other events (such as button presses) when you define the button, and there's a final class of events that you can add once you've completed definition of a widget. In this module, you'll learn how to define your own events handlers, bind them to particular events, override system events if need be, and more.
