pixmap(n)		     Tix Built-In Commands		     pixmap(n)

NAME
       pixmap -	image type for the XPM file format.

SYNOPSIS
       image create pixmap ?name? ?options?

DESCRIPTION
       XPM  is	a  popular X Window image file format for storing color	icons.
       The pixmap image	type defined by	the Tix(n) library can be used to cre-
       ate color images	using XPM files.

CREATING PIXMAPS
       Like  all  images,  pixmaps are created using the image create command.
       Pixmaps support the following options:

       -data string
	      Specifies	the contents of	the source pixmap as  a	 string.   The
	      string must adhere to the	XPM file format	(e.g., as generated by
	      the pixmap(1) program). If both the -data	and -file options  are
	      specified,  the -data option takes precedence.  Please note that
	      the XPM file parsing code	in the xpm library is extremely	 frag-
	      ile.  The	first line of the string must be "/* XPM */" or	other-
	      wise a segmatation fault will be caused.

       -file name
	      name gives the name of a file whose contents define  the	source
	      pixmap.	The  file must adhere to the XPM file format (e.g., as
	      generated	by the pixmap(1) program).

IMAGE COMMAND
       When a pixmap image is created, Tk also creates	a  new	command	 whose
       name is the same	as the image.  This command may	be used	to invoke var-
       ious operations on the image.  It has the following general form:
	      imageName	option ?arg arg	...?
       Option and the args determine the exact behavior	of  the	 command.  The
       following commands are possible for pixmap images:

       imageName cget option
	      Returns  the  current value of the configuration option given by
	      option. Option may have any of the values	accepted by the	 image
	      create pixmap command.

       imageName configure ?option? ?value option value	...?
	      Query  or	 modify	the configuration options for the image. If no
	      option is	specified, returns a list describing all of the	avail-
	      able options for imageName (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	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 image create pixmap command.
