DESCRIPTION

       The  tile widgets let you create textured backgrounds.  The texture is a Tk image which is
       tiled over the entire background of the widget.

INTRODUCTION

       With the advent of Tk 4.0, images are now easy to create and use in applications.   Images
       add  interest  to  applications  and  they convey more information.  But one area where Tk
       hasn't taken advantage of images is using images as textures for widgets.  Since tiling is
       a standard feature of windowing systems, it's very easy to use images as textures.

       The  tile widgets take the standard Tk 4.0 widgets and add tiling configuration options to
       them.  Textures are specified by the name of the image you wish to  be  tiled  across  the
       background of the widget.

EXAMPLE

       To add tiling to a widget, you simply create an image using Tk's image command and use the
       image name as the value for the -tile configuration option of the widget.

              image create photo my_texture -file tan_paper.gif
              blt::tile::frame .f -tile my_texture

       The image my_texture is added to the frame.  If my_texture is updated, so will the  widget
       background.

              image create photo my_texture -file rain.gif

       The  tile  widget  commands reside in the "blt::tile" namespace, so as not to collide with
       the normal Tk widgets.  An easy way to add tiling to existing programs is  to  import  the
       tile widget commands into the global namespace.

              image create photo my_texture -file tan_paper.gif
              namespace import -force blt::tile::*
              frame .f -tile my_texture

       To  use  one  image for all texturing, you can use the "Tile" option class name to specify
       the same image for all tile widgets.

              image create photo my_texture -file tan_paper.gif
              option add *Tile my_texture

OPTIONS

       The following configurations options are added to the widgets. If a -tile  or  -activetile
       option is specified, it overrides the background color of the widget.

       -activetile image
              Specifies  a textured background to display when the widget is active.  This option
              is  available   for   the   tilebutton,   tilecheckbutton,   tileradiobutton,   and
              tilescrollbar  widgets.   Image  is  the  name  an  image  created using Tk's image
              command.  The background of the widget is tiled with image.  If image is  "",  then
              the active background color is displayed.  The default is "".

       -tile image
              Specifies  a  textured  background to display for the widget.  Image is the name an
              image created using Tk's image command.  The background of the widget is tiled with
              image.  If image is "", then the normal background color is displayed.  The default
              is "".
