       Name:   command
       Class:  Command
       Command-Line Switch:    -command

	      Specifies	a Tcl command procedure	to be  evaluated  following  a
	      change in	the current check box selection.

       Name:   orient
       Class:  Orient
       Command-Line Switch:    -orient
       Default Value:  vertical

	      Specifies	 the orientation of the	checkbuttons within the	check-
	      box.  Valid values are either "horizontal" or "vertical".


       The iwidgets::checkbox command creates a	check button box widget	 capa-
       ble  of	adding,	inserting, deleting, selecting,	and configuring	check-
       buttons as well as obtaining the	currently selected button.

       The iwidgets::checkbox command creates a	new Tcl	command	whose name  is
       pathName.  This command may be used to invoke various operations	on the
       widget.	It has the following general form: pathName  option  ?arg  arg
       ...?  Option and	the args determine the exact behavior of the command.

       Many  of	 the  widget commands for the checkbox take as one argument an
       indicator of which checkbutton of the checkbox to  operate  on.	 These
       indicators  are	called indexes and allow reference and manipulation of
       checkbuttons.  Checkbox indexes may be specified	in any of the  follow-
       ing forms:

       number	   Specifies  the checkbutton numerically, where 0 corresponds
		   to the top checkbutton of the checkbox.

       end	   Indicates the last checkbutton of the checkbox.

       pattern	   If the index	doesn't	satisfy	one of the  above  forms  then
		   this	 form is used.	Pattern	is pattern-matched against the
		   tag of each checkbutton in the checkbox, in order from  top
		   to  bottom,	until a	matching entry is found.  The rules of
		   Tcl_StringMatch are used.

       pathName	add tag	?option	value option value?
	      Adds a new checkbutton to	the checkbuttond window	on the bottom.
	      The  command takes additional options which are passed on	to the
	      checkbutton as construction arguments.  These include the	 stan-
	      dard Tk checkbutton options.  The	tag is returned.

       pathName	buttonconfigure	index ?options?
	      This command is similar to the configure command,	except that it
	      applies to the options for an  individual	 checkbutton,  whereas
	      configureapplies	to  the	 options  for the checkbox as a	whole.
	      Options may have any of the values accepted by  the  add	widget
	      command.	 If options are	specified, options are modified	as in-
	      dicated in the command and the command returns an	empty  string.
	      If  no options are specified, returns a list describing the cur-
	      rent options for entry index (see	Tk_ConfigureInfo for  informa-
	      tion on the format of this list).

       pathName	cget option
	      Returns  the  current value of the configuration option given by
	      option.  Option may have any of the values accepted by the iwid-
	      gets::checkbox command.

       pathName	configure ?option? ?value option value ...?
	      Query  or	modify the configuration options of the	widget.	 If no
	      option is	specified, returns a list describing all of the	avail-
	      able  options for	pathName (see Tk_ConfigureInfo for information
	      on the format of this list).  If option  is  specified  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 iwidgets::checkbox command.

       pathName	delete index
	      Deletes a	specified checkbutton given an index.

       pathName	deselect index
	      Deselects	a specified checkbutton	given an index.

       pathName	flash index
	      Flashes a	specified checkbutton given an index.

       pathName	get ?index?
	      Returns  the  tags of the	currently selected checkbuttons	or the
	      selection	status of specific checkbutton when given an index.

       pathName	index index
	      Returns the numerical index corresponding	to index.

       pathName	insert index tag ?option value option value ...?
	      Same as the add command except that it inserts the new checkbut-
	      ton  just	before the one given by	index, instead of appending to
	      the end of the checkbox.	The option, and	value  arguments  have
	      the same interpretation as for the add widget command.

       pathName	select index
	      Selects a	specified checkbutton given an index.
