DESCRIPTION

The iwidgets::promptdialog command creates a prompt dialog similar to the OSF/Motif standard prompt dialog composite widget. The promptdialog is derived from the dialog class and is composed of a EntryField with commands to manipulate the dialog buttons.

METHODS

The iwidgets::promptdialog 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 promptdialog widgets:

WIDGET-SPECIFIC 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::promptdialog 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::promptdialog command.

COMPONENTS

Name:   prompt
Class:  Entryfield

The prompt component is the entry field for user input in the prompt dialog. See the "entryfield" widget manual entry for details on the prompt component item.

EXAMPLE


package require Iwidgets 4.0 option add *textBackground white

iwidgets::promptdialog .pd -modality global -title Password -labeltext Password: -show * .pd hide Apply

if {[.pd activate]} { puts "Password entered: [.pd get]" } else { puts "Password prompt cancelled" }
