NAME
       Tk::Frame - Create and manipulate Frame widgets

SYNOPSIS
       A A A A $frame =	$parent->Frame(?options?);

STANDARD OPTIONS
       -borderwidth   -highlightbackground     -highlightthickness -takefocus
       -class	 -highlightcolor     -relief -cursor

       See Tk::options for details of the standard options.

WIDGET-SPECIFIC	OPTIONS
       Name:	 background
       Class:	 Background
       Switch:	 -background
	   This	option is the same as the standard background option except
	   that	its value may also be specified	as an undefined	value.	In
	   this	case, the widget will display no background or border, and no
	   colors will be consumed from	its colormap for its background	and
	   border.

       Name:	 colormap
       Class:	 Colormap
       Switch:	 -colormap
	   Specifies a colormap	to use for the window.	The value may be
	   either new, in which	case a new colormap is created for the window
	   and its children, or	the name of another window (which must be on
	   the same screen and have the	same visual as $widget), in which case
	   the new window will use the colormap	from the specified window.  If
	   the colormap	option is not specified, the new window	uses the same
	   colormap as its parent.  This option	may not	be changed with	the
	   configure method.

       Name:	 container
       Class:	 Container
       Switch:	 -container
	   The value must be a boolean.	 If true, it means that	this window
	   will	be used	as a container in which	some other application will be
	   embedded (for example, a Tk toplevel	can be embedded	using the -use
	   option).  The window	will support the appropriate window manager
	   protocols for things	like geometry requests.	 The window should not
	   have	any children of	its own	in this	application.  This option may
	   not be changed with the configure method.

       Name:	 height
       Class:	 Height
       Switch:	 -height
	   Specifies the desired height	for the	window in any of the forms
	   acceptable to Tk_GetPixels.	If this	option is less than or equal
	   to zero then	the window will	not request any	size at	all.

       Name:	 visual
       Class:	 Visual
       Switch:	 -visual
	   Specifies visual information	for the	new window in any of the forms
	   accepted by Tk_GetVisual.  If this option is	not specified, the new
	   window will use the same visual as its parent.  The visual option
	   may not be modified with the	configure method.

       Name:	 width
       Class:	 Width
       Switch:	 -width
	   Specifies the desired width for the window in any of	the forms
	   acceptable to Tk_GetPixels.	If this	option is less than or equal
	   to zero then	the window will	not request any	size at	all.

DESCRIPTION
       The Frame method	creates	a new window (given by the $widget argument)
       and makes it into a frame widget.  Additional options, described	above,
       may be specified	on the command line or in the option database to
       configure aspects of the	frame such as its background color and relief.
       The frame command returns the path name of the new window.

       A frame is a simple widget.  Its	primary	purpose	is to act as a spacer
       or container for	complex	window layouts.	 The only features of a	frame
       are its background color	and an optional	3-D border to make the frame
       appear raised or	sunken.

WIDGET METHODS
       The Frame method	creates	a widget object.  This object supports the
       configure and cget methods described in Tk::options which can be	used
       to enquire and modify the options described above.  The widget also
       inherits	all the	methods	provided by the	generic	Tk::Widget class.

BINDINGS
       When a new frame	is created, it has no default event bindings: frames
       are not intended	to be interactive.

KEYWORDS
       frame, widget
