Hi all,

I have recently started to look at the Tkx module for developing GUI-
based applications. In the past I have used Tk.

I am having trouble setting the font on a checkbutton's text. The code
below does not compile, it gives the error:

unknown option "-font" at line 12.

use strict;
use warnings;
use Tkx;

my $font        = 'Courier 10 normal';

my (

my $mw         = Tkx::widget->new('.');
(my $resetButton = $mw->new_ttk__checkbutton
                    (-text     => 'Reset',
                     -variable => $reset,
# The -font option causes error
                     -font     => $font,
                     -onvalue   => 1,
                     -offvalue  => 0,
                     ))->g_pack(-side=>'top', -anchor=>'w');
--- End CODE ---

The Tk reference ( /
checkbutton.htm#M16) indicates the '-font' is a standard option for a

Is this option just not implemented in Perl::Tkx?  Or is there a
different option?

font is a standard option for a checkbutton, but
you're not using a checkbutton.
