NAME
       Tk::tixWm - Tix's addition to the standard TK wm command.

SYNOPSIS
	   $widget->wmCapture

	   $widget->wmRelease

DESCRIPTION
       The wmCapture and the wmRelease methods change the toplevel attribute of Tk widgets.

METHODS
       $widget->wmCapture
	   Converts the toplevel window specified by $widget into a non-toplevel widget. Normally
	   this command is called to convert a Toplevel widget into a Frame widget. The newly-
	   converted frame widget is un-mapped from the screen. To make it appear inside its
	   parent, you must call a geometry manager (e.g. grid or pack) explictly.

       $widget->wmRelease
	   Makes the non-toplevel window specified by $widget into a toplevel widget. Normally
	   this command is called to convert a Frame widget into a Toplevel widget, but it can
	   also be used on any non-toplevel widget (e.g, label). The newly-converted toplevel
	   window is in a withdrawn state. To make it appear on the screen, you must call
	   deiconify after calling wmRelease.

	   Any data associated with $widget via wm methods (icon, protocol, command etc.) are
	   released, and must be re-established if window is later re-captured.

BUGS
       wmCapture does not exist in the Win32 window manager code.

       How these methods interact with perl/Tk's class hierarchy is not yet clear.  In particular
       a wmReleased window will not automatically ``inherit'' the Tk::Wm methods, however a
       wmCaptured window still will.  (A released Label might make a good candidate for an Icon.)
