       ttk::combobox - text field with popdown selection list


       ttk::combobox pathName ?options?


       A  ttk::combobox combines a text field with a pop-down list of values; the user may select
       the value of the text field from among the values in the list.


       -class                -cursor              -takefocus

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

              Boolean value.  If set, the widget selection is linked to the X selection.

       Command-Line Name:-justify
       Database Name:  justify
       Database Class: Justify

              Specifies how the text is aligned within the widget.  Must be one of left,  center,
              or right.

              A   Tcl  script  to  evaluate  immediately  before  displaying  the  listbox.   The
              -postcommand script may specify the -values to display.

       Command-Line Name:-state
       Database Name:  state
       Database Class: State

              One of normal, readonly, or disabled.  In the readonly state, the value may not  be
              edited  directly, and the user can only select one of the -values from the dropdown
              list.  In the normal state, the text field is directly editable.  In  the  disabled
              state, no interaction is possible.

       The following subcommands are possible for combobox widgets:

       pathName current ?newIndex?
              If  newIndex  is  supplied,  sets  the  combobox  value  to the element at position
              newIndex in the list of -values.  Otherwise, returns the index of the current value
              in the list of -values or -1 if the current value does not appear in the list.

       pathName get
              Returns the current value of the combobox.

       pathName set value
              Sets the value of the combobox to value.

       The  combobox  widget  also  supports  the  following  ttk::entry  widget subcommands (see
       ttk::entry(3tk) for details):

              bbox                  delete               icursor
              index                 insert               selection

       The combobox widget also supports the following  generic  ttk::widget  widget  subcommands
       (see ttk::widget(3tk) for details):

              cget                  configure            identify
              instate               state


       The  combobox  widget generates a <<ComboboxSelected>> virtual event when the user selects
       an element from the list of values.  If the selection action  unposts  the  listbox,  this
       event is delivered after the listbox is unposted.
