       tixButtonBox - Create and manipulate Tix ButtonBox widgets

       tixButtonBox pathName ?options?

       -anchor	       -background    -cursor
       -relief	       -borderWidth

       See the options manual entry for details on the standard options.

       [-orientation orientation]  Static Option. Specifies the orientation of the button subwid-
       gets. Only the values "horizontal" and "vertical" are recognized.  [-padx padx]	Specifies
       the horizontal padding between two neighboring button subwidgets in the ButtonBox widget.

       [-pady pady]  Specifies	the vertical padding between two neighboring button subwidgets in
       the ButtonBox widget.  [-state state] Specifies the state of all the  buttons  inside  the
       ButtonBox widget.

       Note:  Setting  this option using the config widget command will enable or disable all the
       buttons subwidgets. Original states of the individual buttons are not saved. Only the val-
       ues "normal" and "disabled" are recognized.

       All  the  button  subwidgets created as a result of the add command can be accessed by the
       subwidget command. They are identified by the buttonName parameter  to  the  add  command.
       Here is an example:

	      set bbox [tixButtonBox .bbox]
	      pack $bbox
	      $bbox add eat   -text Eat
	      $bbox add sleep -text Sleep
	      $bbox subwidget eat   config -fg green
	      $bbox subwidget sleep config -fg red

       The  tixButtonBox  command creates a new window (given by the pathName argument) and makes
       it into a ButtonBox widget. Additional options, described above, may be specified  on  the
       command	line  or in the option database to configure aspects of the ButtonBox such as its
       cursor and relief.

       The ButtonBox widget can be used as a container widget to hold the ``action'' buttons in a
       dialog box.

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

       pathName add buttonName ?option value ...?
	      Add  a  new  button  subwidget  with the name buttonName into the ButtonBox widget.
	      Additional configuration options can be given to configure the new  button  subwid-

       pathName cget option
	      Returns  the  current value of the configuration option given by option. Option may
	      have any of the values accepted by the tixButtonBox 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 tixButtonBox command.

       pathName invoke buttonName
	      Invoke the button subwidget with the name buttonName.

       pathName subwidget  name ?args?
	      When no additional arguments are given, returns the pathname of  the  subwidget  of
	      the specified name.

	      When no additional arguments are given, the widget command of the specified subwid-
	      get will be called with these parameters.

       TixButtonBox widgets have no default bindings. The button subwidgets retain their  default
       Tk bindings.
