_________________________________________________________________________________________________

NAME
       tixListNoteBook - Create and manipulate tixListNoteBook widgets

SYNOPSIS
       tixListNoteBook pathName ?options?

STANDARD OPTIONS
       The  ListNoteBook  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
       [-dynamicgeometry dynamicGeometry] If set to false, the	size  of  the  ListNotebook  will
       match  the  size  of  the  largest page. If set to true, the size of the ListNotebook will
       match the size of the current page (therefore, the size may change when the  user  selects
       different  pages).  The	default  value	is  false.  A  setting	of  true  is discouraged.
       [-ipadx ipadX] The amount of internal horizontal paddings around the  sides  of	the  page
       subwidgets.   [-ipady ipadY]  The amount of internal vertical paddings around the sides of
       the page subwidgets.

SUBWIDGETS
       Name:	      hlist
       Class:	      TixHList

	      The HList widget that displays the names of the pages.

       In addition, all the page subwidgets created as	a  result  of  the  add  command  can  be
       accessed  by  the  subwidget command. They are identified by the pageName parameter to the
       add command.

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

       The  ListNoteBook widget is very similar to the TixNoteBook widget: it can be used to dis-
       play many windows in a limited space using a "notebook" metaphore. The notebook is divided
       into  a	stack  of  pages (windows). At one time only one of these pages can be shown. The
       user can navigate through these pages by choosing the name of  the  desired  page  in  the
       hlist subwidget.

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

       pathName add pageName ?option value ...?
	      Adds a new ListNotebook page subwidget into the ListNoteBook widget.  pageName must
	      be the name of an existing entry of the hlist subwidget. You must create the  entry
	      before  calling  the  add command. Please refer to the tixHList(n) manual entry for
	      adding entries in an HList widget.  Additional parameters may be supplied  to  con-
	      figure this page subwidget. Possible options are:

	      -createcmd
		     Specifies	a  TCL command to be called the first time a page is shown on the
		     screen. This option can be used to delay the creation of the contents  of	a
		     page  until  necessary. Therefore, it can be used to speed up interface cre-
		     ation process especially when there are a large number of pages in  a  List-
		     NoteBook widget.

	      -raisecmd
		     Specifies	a  TCL	command  to be called whenever this page is raised by the
		     user.
       When successful, this command returns the pathname of the newly created page.

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

       pathName delete pageName?
	      Deletes the page identified by pageName.

       pathName pagecget pageName option
	      Returns  the  current value of the configuration option given by option in the page
	      given by pageName. Option may have any of the values accepted  by  the  add  widget
	      command.

       pathName pageconfigure pageName ?option? ?value ...?
	      When  no	option	is  given,  prints out the values of all options of this page. If
	      option is specified with no value, then the command returns the  current	value  of
	      that option. If one or more option-value pairs are specified, then the command mod-
	      ifies the given page's option(s) to have the given value(s); in this case the  com-
	      mand returns an empty string. Option may be any of options accepted by the add wid-
	      get command.

       pathName pages
	      Returns a list of the names of all the pages.

       pathName raise pageName
	      Raise the page identified by pageName.

       pathName raised
	      Returns the name of the currently raised page.

       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.

EXAMPLE
	      set n [tixListNoteBook .n]; pack $n
	      $n subwidget hlist add page1 -text "Page 1"
	      $n subwidget hlist add page2 -text "Page 2"

	      set page1 [$n add page1]
	      set page2 [$n add page2]

	      button $page1.b -text "On page1"
	      button $page2.b -text "On page2"

	      pack $page1.b
	      pack $page2.b

	      $n raise page2

BINDINGS
       When the user activates an entry in the hlist subwidget, the  page  associated  with  that
       entry  will  be raised to the front.  This can be done by using the mouse or keyboard. The
       hlist subwidget operates with its -selectmode option set to single. See the event bindings
       of the HList widget for more details.
