The tixDirTree command creates a new window (given by the pathName argument) and makes it into a DirTree widget. Additional options, described above, may be specified on the command line or in the option database to configure aspects of the DirTree such as its cursor and relief.
The DirTree widget displays a list view of a directory, its previous directories and its sub-directories. The user can choose one of the directories displayed in the list or change to another directory.
The tixDirTree command creates a new Tcl command whose name is the same as the path name of the DirTrees 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 DirTree widgets path name. Option and the args determine the exact behavior of the command. The following commands are possible for DirTree 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 tixDirTree command. pathName chdir dir Change the current directory to dir. 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 tixDirTree command. pathName subwidget name ?args? When no options are given, this command returns the pathname of the subwidget of the specified name.
When options are given, the widget command of the specified subwidget will be called with these options.
The mouse and keyboard bindings of the DirTree widget are the same as the bindings of the HList widget.
