       tixScrolledText - Create	and manipulate Tix ScrolledText	widgets

       tixScrolledText	pathName  ?options?   -anchor	-background    -cursor
       -relief	 -borderWidth

       [-height	height]	Specifies the desired height for the window,  in  pix-
       els.   [-scrollbar scrollbar]  Specifies	 the  display  policy  of  the
       scrollbars. The following values	are recognized:

	      auto ?+x?	?-x? ?+y? ?-y?
		     When -scrollbar is	set  to	 "auto",  the  scrollbars  are
		     shown  only when needed. Additional modifiers can be used
		     to	force a	scrollbar to be	shown or hidden. For  example,
		     "auto  -y"	means the horizontal scrollbar should be shown
		     when needed but the vertical scrollbar should  always  be
		     hidden;  "auto +x"	means the vertical scrollbar should be
		     shown when	needed but the horizontal scrollbar should al-
		     ways be shown, and	so on.

	      both   Both scrollbars are shown

       Name:	      hsb
       Class:	      Scrollbar

	      The horizontal scrollbar subwidget.

       Name:	      text
       Class:	      Text

	      The Text subwidget inside	the ScrolledText widget.

       Name:	      vsb
       Class:	      Scrollbar

	      The vertical scrollbar subwidget.

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

       The tixScrolledText command creates a new Tcl command whose name	is the
       same as the path	name of	the ScrolledText widget's window.   This  com-
       mand 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 Scrolled-
       Text  widget's  path name.  Option and the args determine the exact be-
       havior of  the  command.	  The  following  commands  are	 possible  for
       ScrolledText 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
	      tixScrolledText 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 tixScrolledText command.

       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.
