NAME
       tixMeter - Create and manipulate Tix Meter widgets

SYNOPSIS
       tixMeter pathName ?options?

SUPER-CLASS
       None.

STANDARD OPTIONS
       The  Meter 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
       [-fillcolor fillColor] The color of the progress bar.  [-text text]  The  text  string  to
       place inside the progress bar. If not specified, then the text string will be the percent-
       age value specified by the -value option.  [-value value] A real value that specifies  the
       progress. Must be between 0.0 to 1.0.

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

       The Meter widget can be used to show the pregress of a background job  which  may  take	a
       long time to execute.

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

BINDINGS
       There is no bindings for the Meter widget.
