SUPER-CLASS

       The  TixLabelEntry  class  is  derived  from the TixLabelWidget class and inherits all the
       commands, options and subwidgets of its super-class.

STANDARD OPTIONS

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

DESCRIPTION

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

       The LabelEntry widget packages an entry widget and a label into one mega widget. It can be
       used  be  used to simplify the creation of "entry-form" type of interface. In this kind of
       interface, one must create many entry widgets with label widgets next to them and describe
       the use of each of the entry widgets.

WIDGET COMMANDS

       The  tixLabelEntry  command  creates  a new Tcl command whose name is the same as the path
       name of the LabelEntry'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 LabelEntry widget's path
       name. Option and the args determine the exact  behavior  of  the  command.  The  following
       commands are possible for LabelEntry 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 tixLabelEntry 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 tixLabelEntry command.

       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.
