NAME
       frame - Create and manipulate frame widgets

SYNOPSIS
       frame pathName ?options?

STANDARD OPTIONS
       -borderwidth	     -highlightcolor	  -takefocus
       -cursor		     -highlightthickness
       -highlightbackground  -relief

       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 colormap 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 same colormap as its parent.  This option may not be changed with the configure widget
       command.
       [-container container]  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 appro- |
       priate 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.   [-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 same visual as its parent.	The  vis-
       ual  option  may not be modified with the configure widget command.  [-width width] Speci-
       fies 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 frame command creates a new window (given by the pathName argument) and makes it  into
       a frame widget.	Additional options, described above, may be specified on the command line
       or in the option database to configure aspects of the frame such as its	background  color
       and relief.  The frame command returns the path name of the new window.

       A  frame  is  a simple widget.  Its primary purpose is to act as a spacer or container for
       complex window layouts.	The only features of a frame are  its  background  color  and  an
       optional 3-D border to make the frame appear raised or sunken.

WIDGET COMMAND
       The frame command creates a new Tcl command whose name is the same as the path name of the
       frame'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 frame widget's path name.
       Option and the args determine the exact behavior of the command.  The  following  commands
       are possible for frame 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 frame command.

       pathName configure ?option? ?value option value ...?
	      Query or modify the configuration options of the widget.	If no  option  is  speci-
	      fied,  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  speci-
	      fied 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 frame command.

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

KEYWORDS
       frame, widget

Tk					       8.0					 frame(n)
