DESCRIPTION

       This package provides a widget for the entering of a IP address.

       ::ipentry::ipentry pathName ?option value...?
              Creates  a  new  IPv4  ipentry  widget and configures it with the given options and
              their values.

       ::ipentry::ipentry6 pathName ?option value...?
              Creates a new ipentry widget for the entry of an IPv6 address. All options are  the
              same as the IPv4 widget.

       Each widget created with the command above supports the following methods:

       pathName complete
              Returns  a  boolean  value.  True  indicates  that the entry contains a complete IP
              address, meaning all fields have a value. In some cases IPv6 address are valid when
              fields are missing. You will need to do your own validation to detect this.

       pathName get
              Returns the contents of the entry as a list consisting of 4 or 8 elements.

       pathName insert iplist
              IPv4  Takes  a  list  of 4 elements and inserts one into each quad of the entry, in
              order.  All values in the list must be empty or integers. Values outside the  range
              0  to 255 are modified to be within the range.  IPv6 Takes a list of 8 elements and
              inserts one into each quad of the entry, in order.  All values in the list must  be
              empty or 1 to 4 hex digits.

       pathName icursor index
              Sets  the  position  of the widgets insertion cursor. Only integer values between 0
              and 15 are valid for ipentry and 0 to 31 for ipentry6.  Setting  the  icursor  will
              only have an effect if the widget already has the input focus.

       pathName configure option value...
              Modifies  the  configuration  of  the widget. For options and their meaning see the
              widget options section.

       pathName cget option
              Returns information  about  the  current  configuration  of  the  widget,  for  the
              specified option. For options and their meaning see the widget options section.
