NAME
       tixLabelFrame - Create and manipulate tixLabelFrame widgets

SYNOPSIS
       tixLabelFrame pathName ?options?

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

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

WIDGET-SPECIFIC OPTIONS
       [-label label]  Specifies  the  string  to display as the label of this LabelFrame 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.  [-padx padX]
       Specifies the amount of the horizontal padding around the frame subwidget. Must be a valid
       non-negative  integer  number.	[-pady padY] Specifies the amount of the vertical padding
       around the frame subwidget.

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

CREATING WIDGETS INSIDE A LABELFRAME
       The  LabelFrame widget packages a frame widget and a label into one mega widget. To create
       widgets inside a LabelFrame widget, one must create the new widgets relative to the  frame
       subwidget  and  manage  them inside the frame subwidget. An error will be generated if one
       tries to create widgets as immediate children of the LabelFrame. For example: the  follow-
       ing is correct code, which creates new widgets inside the frame subwidget:

	      tixLabelFrame .f
	      set f [.f subwidget frame]
	      button $f.b -text hi
	      pack $f.b

       The  following  example code is incorrect because it tries to create immediate children of
       the LabelFrame .f:

	      tixLabelFrame .f
	      # wrong!
	      button .f.b -text hi
	      pack .f.b

WIDGET COMMANDS
       The tixLabelFrame command creates a new Tcl command whose name is the  same  as	the  path
       name  of the LabelFrame'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  LabelFrame  widget's  path
       name.  Option and the args determine the exact behavior of the command. The following com-
       mands are possible for LabelFrame 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 tixLabelFrame 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 tixLabelFrame 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.
