argument) and makes it into a Meter widget. Additional options, described
above, may be specified on the command line or in the option database to
configure aspects of the Meter widget such as its cursor and relief.
The Meter widget can be used to show the pregress of a background job which may

the path name of the Meter widget's window. This command may be used to invoke
various operations on the widget. It has the following general form:

is the name of the command, which is the same as the Meter
widget's path name. Option

behavior of the command. The following commands are possible for Meter
- pathName cget option
- Returns the current value of the configuration option given by
option. Option may have any of the values accepted by the
- 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 tixMeter command.
There is no bindings for the Meter widget.
