tk fails to work with TkVariable

S

Stefan Achatz

Hello,
i have here some compressed code from my would-be-application that doesn't
work and i don't know why.
How it should work:
I click the "Open Window"-Button -> a new window opens
I click the "Test"-Button -> a warning-window should open but doesn't
If i remove line 10(TkVariable initialization) everything works well.
What's wrong with initialization of the TkVariable at this point?
Hope someone could help me and thanks in advance

Heres the code:
=== snip
#!/usr/bin/env ruby

require 'tk'

class MyWindow < TkToplevel

def initialize
super

@value = TkVariable.new

this_button = TkButton.new(self) {
text 'Test'
pack('side' => 'left')
}
this_button.command { TkWarning.new("Can you read this?") }

end
end

root = TkRoot.new

root_button = TkButton.new(root) {
text 'Open Window'
pack('side' => 'left')
}
root_button.command { MyWindow.new }

Tk.mainloop
=== snap

And that's the backtrace:

Thank you for your report.
That is a Tcl namespace trouble when autoloading 'tk/variable.rb'.
I'll fix it later on CVS.
If you want a quick hack, please add "require 'tk/variable.rb'"
just after "require 'tk'".
