tixInputOnly - Man Page

Create and manipulate TIX InputOnly widgets


tixInputOnly pathName ?options? -cursor -width -height

Widget-Specific Options

TixInputOnly does not have any widget specific options.


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

TixInputOnly widgets are not visible to the user. The only purpose of TixInputOnly widgets are to accept inputs from the user, which can be done with the bind command.

Widget Command

The tixInputOnly command creates a new Tcl command whose name is the same as the path name of the tixInputOnly'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 InputOnly widget's path name. Option and the args determine the exact behavior of the command.  The following commands are possible for tixInputOnly 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 tixInputOnly 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 tixInputOnly command.


tixInputOnly widgets have no default bindings.


tixInputOnly is currently implemented for the Unix version of Tix only.
