DESCRIPTION

       The datefield package provides the datefield widget which is an enhanced text entry widget
       for the purpose of date entry. Only valid dates of the form MM/DD/YYYY can be entered.

       The datefield widget is, in fact, just an entry widget  with  specialized  bindings.  This
       means all the command and options for an entry widget apply equally here.

COMMANDS

       ::datefield::datefield widgetpath ?options?
              Creates and configures a date field widget.

OPTIONS

       See the entry manual entry for details on all available options.

                   set now [clock scan $::myDate]
                   set ::myDate2 [clock format $now -format %A]
