NAME
       tixDirTree - Create and manipulate tixDirTree widgets

SYNOPSIS
       tixDirTree pathName ?options?

SUPER-CLASS
       The  TixDirTree class is derived from the TixScrolledHList class and inherits all the com-
       mands, options and subwidgets of its super-class.

STANDARD OPTIONS
       TixDirTree supports all the standard options of a frame widget.	See the options(n) manual
       entry for details on the standard options.

WIDGET-SPECIFIC OPTIONS
       [-browsecmd browseCmd]  Specifies  a command to call whenever the user browses on a direc-
       tory (usually by single-clicking on the name of the directory). The command is called with
       one  argument,  the  complete pathname of the directory.  [-command command] Specifies the
       command to be called when the user activates on a directory (usually by double-clicking on
       the name of the directory). The command is called with one argument, the complete pathname
       of the directory.  [-dircmd dircmd] Specifies the TCL command to be called when	a  direc-
       tory  listing  is  needed  for a particular directory. If this option is not specified, by
       default the DirTree widget will attempt to read the directory as a Unix directory. On spe-
       cial occasions, the application programmer may want to supply a special method for reading
       directories: for example, when he needs to list remote  directories.  In  this  case,  the
       -dircmd	option can be used. The specified command accepts two arguments: the first is the
       name of the directory to be listed; the second is a Boolean value indicating whether  hid-
       den  sub-directories  should  be  listed. This command returns a list of names of the sub-
       directories of this directory. For example:
	      proc read_dir {dir show_hidden} {
		  if {$dir == "C:\"} {
		      return {DOS NORTON WINDOWS}
		  } else {
		      return {}
		  }
	      }
       [-disablecallback disableCallback] A boolean value indicating whether callbacks should  be
       disabled.  When	set to true, the TCL command specified by the -command option is not exe-
       cuted when the -value of the DirTree widget changes.   [-showhidden showHidden]	Specifies
       whether	hidden	directories should be shown. By default, a directory name starting with a
       period "." is considered as a hidden directory. This rule can be overridden  by	supplying
       an alternative -dircmd option.

       Name:	 value
       Class:	 Value
       Switch:	 -value
       Alias:	 -directory

	      Specifies the name of the current directory to be displayed in the DirTree widget.

SUBWIDGETS
       Name:	 hlist
       Class:	 TixHList

	      The hierarchical listbox that displays the directory listing.

       Name:	 hsb
       Class:	 Scrollbar

	      The horizontal scrollbar subwidget.

       Name:	 vsb
       Class:	 Scrollbar

	      The vertical scrollbar subwidget.

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

       The DirTree widget displays a list view of a directory, its previous directories  and  its
       sub-directories.  The  user  can  choose  one  of the directories displayed in the list or
       change to another directory.

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

       pathName chdir dir
	      Change the current directory to dir.

       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 tixDirTree command.

       pathName subwidget  name ?args?
	      When  no	options  are given, this command returns the pathname of the subwidget of
	      the specified name.

	      When options are given, the widget command  of  the  specified  subwidget  will  be
	      called with these options.

BINDINGS
       The  mouse and keyboard bindings of the DirTree widget are the same as the bindings of the
       HList widget.
