swaplist - A dialog which allows a user to move options between two lists SYNOPSIS
package require Tcl 8.4 package require Tk 8.4 package require swaplist ?0.1? ::swaplist::swaplist pathName variable completeList selectedList ?options? _________________________________________________________________ DESCRIPTION
This package provides a dialog which consists of 2 listboxes, along with buttons to move items between them and reorder the right list. ::swaplist::swaplist pathName variable completeList selectedList ?options? Creates a dialog which presents the user with a pair of listboxes. Items are selected by using the buttons to move them to the right list. The contents of the right list are put in the variable upon closure of the dialog. The command returns a boolean indicating if the user pressed OK or not. If -geometry is not specified, the dialog is centered in its parent toplevel unless its parent is . in which case the dialog is centered in the screen. Options: -embed if this flag is supplied, the procedure will create a swaplist widget named pathName, with the variable set as the listvari- able for the right side listbox. This flag will also cause the -title and -geometry flags to be ignored. -reorder boolean specifying if buttons allowing the user to change the order of the right listbox should appear or not. defaults to true -title sets the title of the dialog window. defaults to "Configuration" -llabel sets the heading above the left list. defaults to "Available:" -rlabel sets the heading above the right list. defaults to "Selected:" -lbuttontext sets the text on the "move left" button. defaults to "<<" -rbuttontext sets the text on the "move right" button. defaults to ">>" -ubuttontext sets the text on the "move up" button. defaults to "Move Up" -dbuttontext sets the text on the "move down" button. defaults to "Move Down" -geometry sets the geometry of the dialog window.

tk_dialog - Create modal dialog and wait for response SYNOPSIS
tk_dialog window title text bitmap default string string ... _________________________________________________________________ DESCRIPTION
This procedure is part of the Tk script library. Its arguments describe a dialog box: window Name of top-level window to use for dialog. Any existing window by this name is destroyed. title Text to appear in the window manager's title bar for the dialog. text Message to appear in the top portion of the dialog box. bitmap If non-empty, specifies a bitmap to display in the top portion of the dialog, to the left of the text. If this is an empty string then no bitmap is displayed in the dialog. default If this is an integer greater than or equal to zero, then it gives the index of the button that is to be the default button for the dialog (0 for the leftmost button, and so on). If less than zero or an empty string then there will not be any default button. string There will be one button for each of these arguments. Each string specifies text to display in a button, in order from left to right. After creating a dialog box, tk_dialog waits for the user to select one of the buttons either by clicking on the button with the mouse or by typing return to invoke the default button (if any). Then it returns the index of the selected button: 0 for the leftmost button, 1 for the button next to it, and so on. If the dialog's window is destroyed before the user selects one of the buttons, then -1 is returned. While waiting for the user to respond, tk_dialog sets a local grab. This prevents the user from interacting with the application in any way except to invoke the dialog box. EXAMPLE
set reply [tk_dialog .foo "The Title" "Do you want to say yes?" questhead 0 Yes No "I'm not sure"] SEE ALSO
