The Canvas Widget

Create a canvas for drawing with the Canvas method. The Canvas widget uses a coordinate system with the x coordinate increasing as you move right, and the y coordinate increasing as you move down (i.e., the y coordinate is mathematically upside-down). The x and y coordinates are specified in pixels by default.

$parentwidget->Canvas (options)

The standard configuration options that apply to Canvas are: -background, -bor-derwidth, -cursor, -height, -highlightbackground, -highlightcolor, -highlight-thickness, -insertbackground, -insertborderwidth, -insertofftime, -inserton-time, -insertwidth, -relief, -selectbackground, -selectborderwidth, -selectfore-ground, -state, -takefocus, -width, -xscrollcommand, and -yscrollcommand.

Other options are:

-closeenough => amount

The distance considered “close enough” to an item to be judged to be within it. Default is 1 pixel.

-confine => boolean

Whether to limit the canvas to the scroll region. Default is 1.

-scrollregion => [ x, y, w, h ]

Sets the region that the user is allowed to scroll. The option is a list reference that conveniently corresponds to the return value of the bbox method.

-xscrollincrement => amount

The distance to use for scrolling in the x direction.

-yscrollincrement => amount

The distance to use for scrolling in the y direction.
