NAME
tixMwm - Communicate with the Motif(tm) window manager. SYNOPSIS
tixMwm option pathName ?args? COMMAND OPTIONS
tixMwm decoration pathName ?option? ?value ...? When no options are given, this command returns the values of all the decorations options for the toplevel window with the pathName. When only one option is given without specifying the value, the current value of that option is returned. When more than one "option value" pairs are passed to this command, the specified values will be assigned to the corresponding options. As a result, the appearance of the Motif decorations around the toplevel window will be changed. Possible options are: -border, -menu, -maximize, -minimize, -resizeh and -title. The value must be a Boolean value. The values returned by this command are undefined when the window is not managed by mwm. tixMwm ismwmrunning pathName This returns true if mwm is running on the screen where the specified window is located, false otherwise. tixMwm protocol pathName When no additional options are given, this command returns all protocols associated with this toplevel window. tixMwm protocol pathName activate protocol_name Activate the mwm protocol message in mwm's menu. tixMwm protocol pathName add protocol_name menu_message Add a new mwm protocol message for this toplevel window. The message is identified by the string name specified in protocol_name. A menu item will be added into mwm's menu as specified by menu_message. Once a new mwm protocol message is added to a toplevel, it can be catched by the TK wm protocol command. Here is an example: tixMwm protocol . add MY_PRINT_HELLO {"Print Hello" _H Ctrl<Key>H} wm protocol . MY_PRINT_HELLO {puts Hello} tixMwm protocol pathName deactivate protocol_name Deactivate the mwm protocol message in mwm's menu. tixMwm protocol pathName delete protocol_name Delete the mwm protocol message from mwm's menu. Please note that the window manager protocol handler associated with this protocol (by the wm protocol command) is not deleted automatically. You have to delete the protocol handle explicitly. E.g.: tixMwm protocol . delete MY_PRINT_HELLO wm protocol . MY_PRINT_HELLO {} BUGS
On some versions of Mwm, the -border will not disappear unless -resizeh is turned off. Also, the -title will not disappear unless all of -title, -menu, -maximize and -minimize are turned off. KEYWORDS

NAME
toplevel - Create and manipulate toplevel widgets SYNOPSIS
toplevel pathName ?options? STANDARD OPTIONS
-borderwidth -highlightcolor -pady -cursor -highlightthickness -relief -highlightbackground -padx -takefocus See the options manual entry for details on the standard options. WIDGET-SPECIFIC OPTIONS [-background background] This option is the same as the standard background option except that its value may also be specified as an empty string. In this case, the widget will display no background or border, and no colors will be consumed from its colormap for its background and border. [-class class] Specifies a class for the window. This class will be used when querying the option database for the window's other options, and it will also be used later for other purposes such as bindings. The class option may not be changed with the configure widget command. [-colormap colormap] Specifies a colormap to use for the window. The value may be either new, in which case a new col- ormap is created for the window and its children, or the name of another window (which must be on the same screen and have the same visual as pathName), in which case the new window will use the colormap from the specified window. If the colormap option is not specified, the new window uses the default colormap of its screen. This option may not be changed with the configure widget command. [-container con- tainer] The value must be a boolean. If true, it means that this window will be used as a container in which some other application will be embedded (for example, a Tk toplevel can be embedded using the -use option). The window will support the appropriate window manager protocols for things like geometry requests. The window should not have any children of its own in this application. This option may not be changed with the configure widget command. [-height height] Specifies the desired height for the window in any of the forms acceptable to Tk_GetPixels. If this option is less than or equal to zero then the window will not request any size at all. [-menu menu] Specifies a menu widget to be used as a menubar. On the Macintosh, the menubar will be displayed across the top of the main monitor. On Microsoft Win- dows and all UNIX platforms, the menu will appear across the toplevel window as part of the window dressing maintained by the window man- ager. [-screen ] Specifies the screen on which to place the new window. Any valid screen name may be used, even one associated with a different display. Defaults to the same screen as its parent. This option is special in that it may not be specified via the option data- base, and it may not be modified with the configure widget command. [-use use] This option is used for embedding. If the value is not an empty string, it must be the window identifier of a container window, specified as a hexadecimal string like the ones returned by the winfo id command. The toplevel widget will be created as a child of the given container instead of the root window for the screen. If the con- tainer window is in a Tk application, it must be a frame or toplevel widget for which the -container option was specified. This option may not be changed with the configure widget command. [-visual visual] Specifies visual information for the new window in any of the forms accepted by Tk_GetVisual. If this option is not specified, the new window will use the default visual for its screen. The visual option may not be modified with the configure widget command. [-width width] Specifies the desired width for the window in any of the forms acceptable to Tk_GetPixels. If this option is less than or equal to zero then the window will not request any size at all. _________________________________________________________________ DESCRIPTION
The toplevel command creates a new toplevel widget (given by the pathName argument). Additional options, described above, may be specified on the command line or in the option database to configure aspects of the toplevel such as its background color and relief. The toplevel command returns the path name of the new window. A toplevel is similar to a frame except that it is created as a top-level window: its X parent is the root window of a screen rather than the logical parent from its path name. The primary purpose of a toplevel is to serve as a container for dialog boxes and other collections of widgets. The only visible features of a toplevel are its background color and an optional 3-D border to make the toplevel appear raised or sunken. WIDGET COMMAND
The toplevel command creates a new Tcl command whose name is the same as the path name of the toplevel's window. This command may be used to invoke various operations on the widget. It has the following general form: pathName option ?arg arg ...? PathName is the name of the command, which is the same as the toplevel widget's path name. Option and the args determine the exact behav- ior of the command. The following commands are possible for toplevel widgets: pathName cget option Returns the current value of the configuration option given by option. Option may have any of the values accepted by the toplevel command. pathName configure ?option? ?value option value ...? Query or modify the configuration options of the widget. If no option is specified, returns a list describing all of the available options for pathName (see Tk_ConfigureInfo for information on the format of this list). If option is specified with no value, then the command returns a list describing the one named option (this list will be identical to the corresponding sublist of the value returned if no option is specified). If one or more option-value pairs are specified, then the command modifies the given widget option(s) to have the given value(s); in this case the command returns an empty string. Option may have any of the values accepted by the toplevel command. BINDINGS
When a new toplevel is created, it has no default event bindings: toplevels are not intended to be interactive. SEE ALSO
