DESCRIPTION
       The iwidgets::dateentry command creates	a  quicken  style  date	 entry
       field  with  a  popup  calendar by combining the	datefield and calendar
       widgets together.  This allows a	user to	enter the date	via  the  key-
       board  or  by  using  the  mouse	 and selecting the calendar icon which
       brings up a popup calendar.

METHODS
       The iwidgets::dateentry 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.
       The following commands are possible for dateentry widgets:

INHERITED METHODS
       get	       isvalid	      show

       See the "datefield" manual entry	for details on the associated methods.

WIDGET-SPECIFIC	METHODS
       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::dateentry 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::dateentry	command.

	      widget  manual  entry  for  details on the labelbutton component
