NAME

       tixExFileSelectBox - Create and manipulate tixExFileSelectBox widgets

SYNOPSIS

       tixExFileSelectBox pathName ?options?

SUPER-CLASS

       The TixExFileSelectBox class does not have a super-class.

STANDARD OPTIONS

       TixExFileSelectBox supports all the standard options of a frame widget. See the options(n)
       manual entry for details on the standard options.

WIDGET-SPECIFIC OPTIONS

       [-browsecmd browseCmd] Specifies a command to call whenever the user browses on a filename
       in  the  file  listbox (usually by single-clicking on the filename). The command is called
       with one argument, the complete pathname of the file.   [-command command]  Specifies  the
       command  to  be  called  when  the user chooses on a filename the file listbox (usually by
       double-clicking on the filename). The command is called with one  argument,  the  complete
       pathname  of  the  file.   [-dialog dialog]  Specifies  a  dialog  box which contains this
       ExFileSelectBox widget. The dialog box must be a widget  of  the  class  TixShell  or  its
       descendant  classes.  This  is  an  internal  option and should not be used by application
       programmers.  [-dircmd dircmd] Specifies the TCL command to be called when a file  listing
       is  needed  for  a  particular  directory. If this option is not specified, by default the
       ExFileSelectBox widget will attempt to read the directory as a Unix directory. On  special
       occasions,  the  application  programmer  may  want to supply a special method for reading
       directories: for example, when he needs to list remote files. In this  case,  the  -dircmd
       option  can  be used. The specified command accepts three arguments: the first is the name
       of the directory to be listed; the second is a list of  file  patterns,  the  third  is  a
       Boolean  value  indicating  whether  hidden files should be listed. This command returns a
       list of names of the files of this directory which match with the file patterns.

       Name:          directory
       Class:         Directory
       Switch:        -directory
       Alias:         -dir

              Specifies the current directory whose files and sub-directories  are  displayed  in
              the ExFileSelectBox.  [-disablecallback disableCallback] A boolean value indicating
              whether callbacks should be disabled. When set to true, the TCL  command  specified
              by  the  -command  option  is  not  executed when the -value of the ExFileSelectBox
              widget changes.  [-filetypes fileTypes]  Specifies  the  file  types  that  can  be
              selected  from  the  "List  Files  of  Type:" ComboBox subwidget. The value of this
              option must be a TCL list; each item of this list must in turn be  a  list  of  two
              elements.   The  first  element is a list of file patterns. The second element is a
              string that describe these file patterns. For example:
                  tixExFileSelectBox .box -filetypes  {
                      {{*}   {All files}}
                      {{*.txt}    {Text files}}
                      {{*.c *.h}  {C source files}}
                  }
              [-showhidden showHidden] Specifies whether hidden directories should be  shown.  By
              default,  a  directory  name  starting  with a period "." is considered as a hidden
              directory.  [-pattern pattern] Specifies whether the file pattern(s) to match  with
              the  files  in the current directory. One or more file patterns can be given at the
              same time. For example, {*.c *.h} will match all files that have either the ".h" or
              ".c" extensions.

       Name:          value
       Class:         Value
       Switch:        -value
       Alias:         -selection

              Specifies the name of the filename currently selected by the user.

DESCRIPTION

       The  tixExFileSelectBox  command creates a new window (given by the pathName argument) and
       makes it into a ExFileSelectBox  widget.  Additional  options,  described  above,  may  be
       specified  on  the  command  line  or  in  the option database to configure aspects of the
       ExFileSelectBox such as its cursor and relief.

       The ExFileSelectBox widget is usually  embedded  in  a  tixExFileSelectDialog  widget.  It
       provides   an  convenient  method  for  the  user  to  select  files.  The  style  of  the
       ExFileSelectBox widget is very similar to the standard file dialog in MS Windows 3.1.

WIDGET COMMANDS

       The tixExFileSelectBox command creates a new Tcl command whose name is  the  same  as  the
       path  name  of  the  ExFileSelectBox's  window. This command may be used to invoke various
       operations on the widget. It has the following general form:
              pathName option ?arg arg ...?
       PathName is the name of the command, which is the same  as  the  ExFileSelectBox  widget's
       path  name. Option and the args determine the exact behavior of the command. The following
       commands are possible for ExFileSelectBox widgets:

       pathName cget option
              Returns the current value of the configuration option given by option.  Option  may
              have any of the values accepted by the tixExFileSelectBox command.

       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 tixExFileSelectBox command.

       pathName filter
              Forces  the  ExFileSelectBox widget to re-filter all the filenames according to the
              -pattern option.

       pathName invoke
              Forces the ExFileSelectBox widget to perform actions as if the user has pressed the
              "OK" button.

       pathName subwidget  name ?args?
              When  no  options  are given, this command returns the pathname of the subwidget of
              the specified name.

              When options are given, the widget command  of  the  specified  subwidget  will  be
              called with these options.
