pixmap(n)			      Tix Built-In Commands				pixmap(n)

NAME
       pixmap - image type for the XPM file format.

SYNOPSIS
       image create pixmap ?name? ?options?
_________________________________________________________________

DESCRIPTION
       XPM  is	a  popular  X Window image file format for storing color icons.  The pixmap image
       type defined by the Tix(n) library can be used to create color images using XPM files.

CREATING PIXMAPS
       Like all images, pixmaps are created using the image create command. Pixmaps  support  the
       following options:

       -data string
	      Specifies the contents of the source pixmap as a string.	The string must adhere to
	      the XPM file format (e.g., as generated by the  pixmap(1)  program).  If	both  the
	      -data  and  -file options are specified, the -data option takes precedence.  Please
	      note that the XPM file parsing code in the xpm library is  extremely  fragile.  The
	      first  line of the string must be "/* XPM */" or otherwise a segmatation fault will
	      be caused.

       -file name
	      name gives the name of a file whose contents define the source  pixmap.	The  file
	      must adhere to the XPM file format (e.g., as generated by the pixmap(1) program).

IMAGE COMMAND
       When  a	pixmap	image is created, Tk also creates a new command whose name is the same as
       the image.  This command may be used to invoke various operations on the  image.   It  has
       the following general form:
		     imageName option ?arg arg ...?
       Option  and  the  args determine the exact behavior of the command. The following commands
       are possible for pixmap images:

       imageName cget option
	      Returns the current value of the configuration option given by option.  Option  may
	      have any of the values accepted by the image create pixmap command.

       imageName configure ?option? ?value option value ...?
	      Query or modify the configuration options for the image. If no option is specified,
	      returns a list describing all of the available options for imageName  (see  Tk_Con-
	      figureInfo  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 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
	      image create pixmap command.
