Ruby/tk: Static text on a terminal window?


#1

I haven’t been able to find it, but is there a way to handle static text
and screen seperation with TK? On a basic terminal?
such as;

scrollingtexxt
scrollingtext
scrollingtext
–staticline–
place for ‘gets’/user input

Maybe, I don’t understand what you want.
Did you say such like a following?

require ‘tk’

f = TkFrame.new.pack(:expand=>true, :fill=>:both)
e = TkEntry.new(f).pack(:side=>:bottom, :fill=>:x)
l = TkLabel.new(f, :anchor=>:w).pack(:side=>:bottom, :fill=>:x)
l.text ‘— mode line —’

t = TkText.new(f){
yscrollbar(TkScrollbar.new(f).pack(:side=>:right, :fill=>:y,
:expand=>false))
pack(:side=>:left, :fill=>:both, :expand=>true)
}

e.bind(‘Return’){
t.insert(:end, e.value + “\n”).see(:end)
e.delete(0, :end)
}

e.focus

Tk.mainloop
