The iwidgets::dateentry command creates a quicken style date entry field with a popup calendar by combining the datefield and calendar widgets together. This allows a user to enter the date via the keyboard or by using the mouse and selecting the calendar icon which brings up a popup calendar.
The iwidgets::dateentry command creates a new Tcl command whose name is pathName. This command may be used to invoke various operations on the widget. It has the following general form:
pathName option ?arg arg ...?
Option and the args determine the exact behavior of the command. The following commands are possible for dateentry widgets:
get isvalid show
See the "datefield" manual entry for details on the associated methods.
pathName cget option Returns the current value of the configuration option given by option. Option may have any of the values accepted by the iwidgets::dateentry 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 iwidgets::dateentry command.
