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

NAME
       tixLabelFrame - Create and manipulate tixLabelFrame widgets

SYNOPSIS
       tixLabelFrame pathName ?options?

SUPER-CLASS
       The  TixLabelFrame  class  is derived from the TixLabelWidget class and
       inherits	all the	commands, options and subwidgets of its	super-class.

STANDARD OPTIONS
       The LabelFrame widget supports all the standard options of a frame wid-
       get.  See  the  options(n) manual entry for details on the standard op-
       tions.

WIDGET-SPECIFIC	OPTIONS
       [-label label] Specifies	the string to display as the label of this La-
       belFrame	 widget.   [-labelside labelSide]  Specifies  where  the label
       should be displayed relative to the entry subwidget. Valid options are:
       top,  left,  right,  bottom, none or acrosstop.	[-padx padX] Specifies
       the amount of the horizontal padding around the frame  subwidget.  Must
       be  a  valid  non-negative  integer number.  [-pady padY] Specifies the
       amount of the vertical padding around the frame subwidget.

SUBWIDGETS
       Name:	      frame
       Class:	      Frame

	      The frame	subwidget.

       Name:	      label
       Class:	      Label

	      The label	subwidget.

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

CREATING WIDGETS INSIDE	A LABELFRAME
       The LabelFrame widget packages a	frame widget and a label into one mega
       widget.	To  create widgets inside a LabelFrame widget, one must	create
       the new widgets relative	to the frame subwidget and manage them	inside
       the  frame subwidget. An	error will be generated	if one tries to	create
       widgets as immediate children of	the LabelFrame.	For example: the  fol-
       lowing is correct code, which creates new widgets inside	the frame sub-
       widget:

       tixLabelFrame .f	set f [.f subwidget frame] button $f.b -text  hi  pack
       $f.b

       The  following example code is incorrect	because	it tries to create im-
       mediate children	of the LabelFrame .f:

       tixLabelFrame .f	# wrong!  button .f.b -text hi pack .f.b

WIDGET COMMANDS
       The tixLabelFrame command creates a new Tcl command whose name  is  the
       same  as	 the path name of the LabelFrame'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	Label-
       Frame widget's path name. Option	and the	args determine the  exact  be-
       havior  of  the command.	The following commands are possible for	Label-
       Frame widgets:

       pathName	cget option
	      Returns the current value	of the configuration option  given  by
	      option. Option may have any of the values	accepted by the	tixLa-
	      belFrame 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 tixLabelFrame command.

       pathName	subwidget name ?args?
	      When no options are given, this command returns the pathname  of
	      the subwidget of the specified name.

       When  options  are given, the widget command of the specified subwidget
       will be called with these options.
