NAME
       Tk::Label - Create and manipulate Label widgets

SYNOPSIS
       $label = $parent->Label(?options?);

STANDARD OPTIONS
       -activebackground -activeforeground -anchor -background -bitmap -borderwidth -compound
       -cursor -disabledforeground -font -foreground -highlightbackground -highlightcolor
       -highlightthickness -image -justify -padx -pady -relief -takefocus -text -textvariable
       -underline -wraplength

       See Tk::options for details of the standard options.

WIDGET-SPECIFIC OPTIONS
       Name:	 height
       Class:	 Height
       Switch:	 -height
	   Specifies a desired height for the label.  If an image or bitmap is being displayed in
	   the label then the value is in screen units (i.e. any of the forms acceptable to
	   Tk_GetPixels); for text it is in lines of text.  If this option isn't specified, the
	   label's desired height is computed from the size of the image or bitmap or text being
	   displayed in it.

       Name:	 state
       Class:	 State
       Switch:	 -state
	   Specifies one of three states for the label: normal, active, or disabled. In normal
	   state the label is displayed using the foreground and background options. In active
	   state the label is displayed using the activeForeground and activeBackground options.
	   In the disabled state the disabledForeground and background options determine how the
	   button is displayed.

       Name:	 width
       Class:	 Width
       Switch:	 -width
	   Specifies a desired width for the label.  If an image or bitmap is being displayed in
	   the label then the value is in screen units (i.e. any of the forms acceptable to
	   Tk_GetPixels); for text it is in characters.  If this option isn't specified, the
	   label's desired width is computed from the size of the image or bitmap or text being
	   displayed in it.

DESCRIPTION
       The Label method creates a new window (given by the $widget argument) and makes it into a
       label widget.  Additional options, described above, may be specified on the command line
       or in the option database to configure aspects of the label such as its colors, font,
       text, and initial relief.  The label command returns its $widget argument.  At the time
       this command is invoked, there must not exist a window named $widget, but $widget's parent
       must exist.

       A label is a widget that displays a textual string, bitmap or image.  If text is
       displayed, it must all be in a single font, but it can occupy multiple lines on the screen
       (if it contains newlines or if wrapping occurs because of the wrapLength option) and one
       of the characters may optionally be underlined using the underline option.  The label can
       be manipulated in a few simple ways, such as changing its relief or text, using the
       commands described below.

WIDGET METHODS
       The Label method creates a widget object.  This object supports the configure and cget
       methods described in Tk::options which can be used to enquire and modify the options
       described above.  The widget also inherits all the methods provided by the generic
       Tk::Widget class.

BINDINGS
       When a new label is created, it has no default event bindings: labels are not intended to
       be interactive.

KEYWORDS
       label, widget
