This package provides a widget for the entering of a IP address.
- ::ipentry::ipentry pathName ?option value...?
Creates a new IPv4 ipentry widget and configures it with the given options and their values.
- ::ipentry::ipentry6 pathName ?option value...?
Creates a new ipentry widget for the entry of an IPv6 address. All options are the same as the IPv4 widget.
Each widget created with the command above supports the following methods:
- pathName complete
Returns a boolean value. True indicates that the entry contains a complete IP address, meaning all fields have a value. In some cases IPv6 address are valid when fields are missing. You will need to do your own validation to detect this.
- pathName get
Returns the contents of the entry as a list consisting of 4 or 8 elements.
- pathName insert iplist
IPv4 Takes a list of 4 elements and inserts one into each quad of the entry, in order. All values in the list must be empty or integers. Values outside the range 0 to 255 are modified to be within the range. IPv6 Takes a list of 8 elements and inserts one into each quad of the entry, in order. All values in the list must be empty or 1 to 4 hex digits.
- pathName icursor index
Sets the position of the widgets insertion cursor. Only integer values between 0 and 15 are valid for ipentry and 0 to 31 for ipentry6. Setting the icursor will only have an effect if the widget already has the input focus.
- pathName configure option value...
Modifies the configuration of the widget. For options and their meaning see the widget options section.
- pathName cget option
Returns information about the current configuration of the widget, for the specified option. For options and their meaning see the widget options section.
The name of a variable which holds the value of the IP address. The value must be a string of the form NNN.NNN.NNN.NNN for IPv4 or HHHH:HHHH:HHHH:HHHH:HHHH:HHHH:HHHH:HHHH for IPv6 where H is a hex digit. The variable will be modified to represent a valid IP address if it is not already.
Specifies one of three states for the entry: normal, disabled, or readonly.
Standard widget options. See options for a description of their meanings and values.
