NAME

Widget - base class for mega-widgets within a frame

INHERITANCE

itk::Archetype <- itk::Widget

STANDARD OPTIONS


background  cursor

See the "options" manual entry for details on the standard options.

DESCRIPTION

The Widget class inherits everything from the Archetype class, and adds a Tk frame called the "hull" component to represent the body of the mega-widget. The window class name for the hull is set to the most-specific class name for the mega-widget. The protected variable itk_interior contains the window path name for the "hull" component. Derived classes specialize this widget by packing other widget components into the hull.

Since the hull for the Widget class is implemented with a Tk frame, mega-widgets in the Widget class can be packed into other frames and toplevels.

COMPONENTS

Name:   hull
Class:  Frame

The "hull" component acts as the body for the entire mega-widget. Other components are packed into the hull to further specialize the widget.

EXAMPLE

The following example implements a simple TextDisplay mega-widget. It creates a read-only display of text with a text widget and a scrollbar. option add *TextDisplay.wrap none widgetDefault option add *TextDisplay.textBackground ivory widgetDefault option add *TextDisplay.width 40 widgetDefault option add *TextDisplay.height 10 widgetDefault

itcl::class TextDisplay {

constructor {args} {
itk_component add text {
text $itk_interior.info -state disabled
-yscrollcommand [code $itk_interior.sbar set]
} {

keep -tabs -wrap -width -height
rename -background -textbackground textBackground Background
}
pack $itk_component(text) -side left -expand yes -fill both

itk_component add scrollbar {
scrollbar $itk_interior.sbar
-command [code $itk_interior.info yview]
}
pack $itk_component(scrollbar) -side right -fill y

eval itk_initialize $args
}

public method display {info}
public method append {info} }

itcl::body TextDisplay::display {info} {
$itk_component(text) configure -state normal
$itk_component(text) delete 1.0 end
$itk_component(text) insert 1.0 $info
$itk_component(text) configure -state disabled }

itcl::body TextDisplay::append {info} {
$itk_component(text) configure -state normal
$itk_component(text) insert end $info
$itk_component(text) configure -state disabled }
