Hi,

I didn't check the source tree you mentioned, but I will, thanks.

I am looking for info on the routines needed to have a GUI that involves
more
Than one screen/window - I guess TKToplevel is one of them. Most of the
stuff I
Find is just the code being used with no explanation, the user is assumed to
Know what it does. I am looking for something that explains the routines.

I basically want to switch between one or more windows, each window takes up
the
whole screen, the user would enter/view data in each window, basic GUI
stuff.

Thanks,

Harry

Do you mean about such like as TkWindow#grab or TkWindow#focus? 
Or usage of 'screen' option of TkToplevel widget?
Or again, how to control another {Ruby|Tcl}/Tk process on the same or other
machine with RemoteTkIp class?

Did you check samples in 'ext/tk/sample' directory on your ruby source tree?
