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

NAME
       tixButtonBox - Create and manipulate Tix	ButtonBox widgets

SYNOPSIS
       tixButtonBox  pathName ?options?	 -anchor   -background	  -cursor -re-
       lief   -borderWidth

WIDGET-SPECIFIC	OPTIONS
       [-orientation orientation] Static Option. Specifies the orientation  of
       the  button subwidgets. Only the	values "horizontal" and	"vertical" are
       recognized.  [-padx padx] Specifies the horizontal padding between  two
       neighboring button subwidgets in	the ButtonBox widget.

       [-pady pady]  Specifies	the  vertical  padding between two neighboring
       button subwidgets in the	ButtonBox  widget.   [-state state]  Specifies
       the state of all	the buttons inside the ButtonBox widget.

       Note:  Setting  this option using the config widget command will	enable
       or disable all the buttons subwidgets. Original states of the  individ-
       ual  buttons are	not saved. Only	the values "normal" and	"disabled" are
       recognized.

SUBWIDGETS
       All the button subwidgets created as a result of	the add	command	can be
       accessed	 by  the subwidget command. They are identified	by the button-
       Name parameter to the add command. Here is an example:

       set bbox	[tixButtonBox .bbox] pack $bbox	 $bbox	add  eat    -text  Eat
       $bbox  add  sleep  -text	 Sleep	$bbox subwidget	eat   config -fg green
       $bbox subwidget sleep config -fg	red

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

       The ButtonBox widget can	be used	as a  container	 widget	 to  hold  the
       ``action'' buttons in a dialog box.

WIDGET COMMAND
       The  tixButtonBox  command  creates a new Tcl command whose name	is the
       same as the path	name of	the ButtonBox'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 ButtonBox
       widget's	 path  name.  Option and the args determine the	exact behavior
       of the command.	The following commands are possible for	ButtonBox wid-
       gets:

       pathName	add buttonName ?option value ...?
	      Add  a  new  button  subwidget with the name buttonName into the
	      ButtonBox	widget.	Additional configuration options can be	 given
	      to configure the new button subwidget.

       pathName	cget option
	      Returns  the  current value of the configuration option given by
	      option. Option may have  any  of	the  values  accepted  by  the
	      tixButtonBox 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 tixButtonBox command.

       pathName	invoke buttonName
	      Invoke the button	subwidget with the name	buttonName.

       pathName	subwidget  name	?args?
	      When  no additional arguments are	given, returns the pathname of
	      the subwidget of the specified name.

	      When no additional arguments are given, the  widget  command  of
	      the specified subwidget will be called with these	parameters.

BINDINGS
       TixButtonBox  widgets  have  no default bindings. The button subwidgets
       retain their default Tk bindings.
