tixLabelEntry - Create and manipulate tixLabelEntry widgets
tixLabelEntry pathName ?options?
The TixLabelEntry class is derived from the TixLabelWidget class and inherits all the com-
mands, options and subwidgets of its super-class.
The LabelEntry widget supports all the standard options of a frame widget. See the
options(n) manual entry for details on the standard options.
[-disableforeground disableForeground] The foreground color to use for of the entry sub-
widget when the LabelEntry widget is disabled. [-label label] Specifies the string to
display as the label of this LabelEntry widget. [-labelside labelSide] Specifies where
the label should be displayed relative to the entry subwidget. Valid options are: top,
left, right, bottom, none or acrosstop. [-state state] Specifies the whether the LabelEn-
try widget is normal or disabled. Only the values "normal" and "disabled" are recognized.
The label subwidget.
The entry subwidget.
The tixLabelEntry command creates a new window (given by the pathName argument) and makes
it into a LabelEntry widget. Additional options, described above, may be specified on the
command line or in the option database to configure aspects of the LabelEntry such as its
cursor and relief.
The LabelEntry widget packages an entry widget and a label into one mega widget. It can be
used be used to simplify the creation of "entry-form" type of interface. In this kind of
interface, one must create many entry widgets with label widgets next to them and describe
the use of each of the entry widgets.
The tixLabelEntry command creates a new Tcl command whose name is the same as the path
name of the LabelEntry'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 LabelEntry widget's path
name. Option and the args determine the exact behavior of the command. The following com-
mands are possible for LabelEntry 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 tixLabelEntry 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 tixLabelEntry 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.
