tixMeter - Create and manipulate Tix Meter widgets
tixMeter pathName ?options?
The Meter widget supports all the standard options of a frame widget.
See the options(n) manual entry for details on the standard
[ -fillcolor fillColor FillColor ]
The color of the progress bar.
[ -text text Text ]
The text string to place inside the progress bar. If not specified,
then the text string will be the percentage value specified by the
[ -value value Value ]
A real value that specifies the progress. Must be between 0.0 to 1.0.
The tixMeter command creates a new window (given by the
pathName argument) and makes it into a Meter widget.
Additional options, described above, may be specified on the command
line or in the option database to configure aspects of the
Meter widget such as its cursor and relief.
The Meter widget can be used to show the pregress of a background job
which may take a long time to execute.
The tixMeter command creates a new Tcl command whose name is
the same as the path name of the Meter widget'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
Meter widget's path name. Option and the args
determine the exact behavior of the command. The following commands
are possible for Meter widgets:
Returns the current value of the configuration option given by
option. Option may have any of the values accepted by the
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
available 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 tixMeter command.
