NAME
       tixExFileSelectBox - Create and manipulate tixExFileSelectBox widgets

SYNOPSIS
       tixExFileSelectBox pathName ?options?

SUPER-CLASS
       The TixExFileSelectBox class does not have a super-class.

STANDARD OPTIONS
       TixExFileSelectBox 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 filename
       in  the	file  listbox (usually by single-clicking on the filename). The command is called
       with one argument, the complete pathname of the file.   [-command command]  Specifies  the
       command to be called when the user chooses on a filename the file listbox (usually by dou-
       ble-clicking on the filename). The command is called with one argument, the complete path-
       name  of  the file.  [-dialog dialog] Specifies a dialog box which contains this ExFileSe-
       lectBox widget. The dialog box must be a widget of the class TixShell  or  its  descendant
       classes.  This  is  an  internal option and should not be used by application programmers.
       [-dircmd dircmd] Specifies the TCL command to be called when a file listing is needed  for
       a  particular  directory.  If this option is not specified, by default the ExFileSelectBox
       widget will attempt to read the directory as a Unix directory. On special  occasions,  the
       application  programmer	may  want to supply a special method for reading directories: for
       example, when he needs to list remote files. In this case, the -dircmd option can be used.
       The  specified  command accepts three arguments: the first is the name of the directory to
       be listed; the second is a list of file patterns, the third is a Boolean value  indicating
       whether	hidden	files should be listed. This command returns a list of names of the files
       of this directory which match with the file patterns.

       Name:	      directory
       Class:	      Directory
       Switch:	      -directory
       Alias:	      -dir

	      Specifies the current directory whose files and sub-directories  are  displayed  in
	      the ExFileSelectBox.  [-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 executed when the -value of the ExFileSelectBox wid-
	      get changes.  [-filetypes fileTypes] Specifies the file types that can be  selected
	      from the "List Files of Type:" ComboBox subwidget. The value of this option must be
	      a TCL list; each item of this list must in turn be a list  of  two  elements.   The
	      first  element  is  a  list  of  file patterns. The second element is a string that
	      describe these file patterns. For example:
		  tixExFileSelectBox .box -filetypes  {
		      {{*}   {All files}}
		      {{*.txt}	  {Text files}}
		      {{*.c *.h}  {C source files}}
		  }
	      [-showhidden showHidden] Specifies whether hidden directories should be  shown.  By
	      default,	a  directory  name  starting  with a period "." is considered as a hidden
	      directory.  [-pattern pattern] Specifies whether the file pattern(s) to match  with
	      the  files  in the current directory. One or more file patterns can be given at the
	      same time. For example, {*.c *.h} will match all files that have either the ".h" or
	      ".c" extensions.

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

	      Specifies the name of the filename currently selected by the user.

       Name:	      cancel
       Class:	      Button

	      The button widget with the "Cancel" label.

DESCRIPTION
       The  tixExFileSelectBox	command creates a new window (given by the pathName argument) and
       makes it into a ExFileSelectBox widget. Additional options, described above, may be speci-
       fied  on  the command line or in the option database to configure aspects of the ExFileSe-
       lectBox such as its cursor and relief.

       The ExFileSelectBox widget is usually embedded in a tixExFileSelectDialog widget. It  pro-
       vides  an convenient method for the user to select files. The style of the ExFileSelectBox
       widget is very similar to the standard file dialog in MS Windows 3.1.

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

       pathName filter
	      Forces  the  ExFileSelectBox widget to re-filter all the filenames according to the
	      -pattern option.

       pathName invoke
	      Forces the ExFileSelectBox widget to perform actions as if the user has pressed the
	      "OK" button.

       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.
