The NBFrame widget is used privately inside the TixNoteBook(n) widget to display the page tabs. The application programmer should never create a NBFrame widget directly. The sole purpose of this maual page is to describe the options that can be used to configure the appearance of the TixNoteBook widget.

The name of the NBFrame subwidget inside the TixNoteBook widget is called nbframe. It can be accessed using the subwidget command of the TixNoteBook widget or the -options switch. See below for an example.


set nb [tixNoteBook .nb -options {
   nbframe.BackPageColor gray60 }] $nb subwidget nbframe config -font fixed

$nb add page1 -label "Page1" set page [$nb subwidget page1] button $page.b1 pack $page.b1

pack $nb -expand yes -fill both
