DESCRIPTION

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

WIDGET COMMANDS

The tixOptionMenu command creates a new Tcl command whose name is the same as the path name of the OptionMenu'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 OptionMenu widget's path name. Option and the args determine the exact behavior of the command. The following commands are possible for OptionMenu widgets:
pathName add type name ?option value ...?
Adds a new item into the OptionMenu widget. type must be either command or separator. The options may be any of the valid options for the command or separator menu entry types for the TK menu widget class, except -command.
pathName cget option
Returns the current value of the configuration option given by option. Option may have any of the values accepted by the tixOptionMenu 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 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 tixOptionMenu command.
pathName delete name
Deletes the menu entry identified by name.
pathName disable name
Disables the menu entry identified by name.
pathName enable name
Enables the menu entry identified by name.

If no option is specified, returns a list describing all of the available options for the menu entry (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 add widget command.
pathName entries
Returns the names of all the entries currently in the OptionMenu widget.
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.
