Re: [FishMonger] Tk - Changing the dimensions for a table.

The purpose of the program is to display a personís 401K/ IRA holdings in a sorted order with the best possible investments at the top of the list. The 401K at my company may allow me to invest in 20 funds while my wifeís 401K allows her to invest in a different 15 funds, so each of the tables would have a different number of rows.

My 401K performance page shows me how the funds are doing for YTD, the last 6 months, 1 year, and 3 years. My wifeís performance page does not include YTD but does include 3 months and 5 years. So, the number of columns and the column headings would have to change for each table/chart that I want to display.

Once I get the program working, without knowing how much each person has invested, I may wind up producing results for my neighbor, her brother and my sister, all of which may have a different number of rows and columns.

There is an alternative to the table. I can easily produce the tables as Intranet HTML pages. Does Perl have the ability to display a widget that is say 700 pixels wide and 500 pixels high into which I can display an HTML file that is scrollable in both directions? And of course, the widget has to be able to be given a different local path to display a different file upon a userís request! In fact, this alternative is even better because it allows me more flexibility in formatting.
