NAME

       tixPanedWindow - Create and manipulate tixPanedWindow widgets

SYNOPSIS

       tixPanedWindow pathName ?options?

STANDARD OPTIONS

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

WIDGET-SPECIFIC OPTIONS

       Name:          command
       Class:         Command
       Switch:        -command

              Specifies the command to invoke when the panes change their sizes.  This command is
              called with a list of integers that record the new sizes of the panes. The sizes of
              the   panes   are   listed   in    the    order    of    the    panes'    creation.
              [-dynamicgeometry dynamicGeometry] If set to true, the size of the PanedWindow will
              dynamically change if the size of any of its panes changes. Otherwise, the size  of
              the  PanedWindow  will only increase when size of any of its panes changes and will
              not  decrease.  The  default  value  is   true.    [-handleactivebg handleActiveBg]
              Specifies  the active background color of the resize handles. When the mouse cursor
              enters a resize handle, the resize handle will adopt the active  background  color.
              [-handlebg handleBg]  Specifies  the normal background color of the resize handles.
              [-height height]    Specifies    the    desired    height    for    the     window.
              [-orientation orientation]  Specifies  the orientation of the panes. Must be either
              vertical or horizontal.  [-paneborderwidth  or  -panebd paneBorderWidth]  Specifies
              the  border  width  of  the  panes.   [-panerelief paneRelief] Specifies the border
              relief of the panes.  [-separatoractivebg separatorActiveBg] Specifies  the  active
              background  color  of  the  separators.  When  the  user grabs a resize handle, the
              separators will adopt  the  active  background  color.   [-separatorbg separatorBg]
              Specifies  the normal background color of the separators.  [-width width] Specifies
              the desired width for the window.

SUBWIDGETS

       All the pane subwidgets created as a result of the add command  can  be  accessed  by  the
       subwidget command. They are identified by the paneName parameter to the add command.

DESCRIPTION

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

       The PanedWindow widget allows the user to interactively manipulate the  sizes  of  several
       panes.  The  panes can be arranged either vertically or horizontally. Each individual pane
       may have upper and lower limits of its size. The user changes the sizes of  the  panes  by
       dragging the resize handle between two panes.

WIDGET COMMAND

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

       pathName add paneName ?option value ...?
              Adds  a  new  pane  subwidget  with  the name paneName into the PanedWindow widget.
              Additional  configuration  options  can  be  given  to  configure  the  new  button
              subwidget. Three configuration options are supported:

              -after pane
                     Specifies that the new pane should be placed after pane in the list of panes
                     in this PanedWindow widget.

              -at integer
                     Specifies the position of the  new  pane  in  the  list  of  panes  in  this
                     PanedWindow  widget.  0 means the first position, 1 means the second, and so
                     on. In addition, end means the end of the list.

              -before pane
                     Specifies that the new pane should be placed before  pane  in  the  list  of
                     panes in this PanedWindow widget.

              -expand factor
                     Specifies  the  expand/shrink  factor  of  this  pane. Factor must be a non-
                     negative floating point number. The default value is 0.0. The  expand/shrink
                     factor  is  used  to calculate how much each pane should grow or shrink when
                     the size of the PanedWindow main window is changed.  When  the  main  window
                     expands/shrinks  by  n  pixels,  then  pane  i will grow/shrink by about n *
                     factor(i) / summation(factors), where factor(i) is the expand/shrink  factor
                     of  pane  i  and  summation(factors)  is  the summation of the expand/shrink
                     factors of all the panes. If summation(factors) is 0.0,  however,  only  the
                     last visible pane will be grown or shrunk.

              -min integer
                     Specifies the minimum size, in pixels, of the new pane; the default is 0.

              -max integer
                     Specifies  the  maximum  size,  in  pixels,  of the new pane; the default is
                     10000.

              -size integer
                     Specifies the size, in pixels, of the new pane; if the -size option  is  not
                     given,  or  set  to  the  empty  string, the PanedWindow widget will use the
                     natural size of the pane subwidget.

       pathName cget option
              Returns the current value of the configuration option given by option.  Option  may
              be -min, -max and/or -size, or any option accepted by the Tk frame widget.

       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  be  any  of
              the non-static options of the PanedWindow widget.

       pathName delete paneName
              Removes the pane given by paneName and deletes its contents.

       pathName forget paneName
              Removes  the pane given by paneName but does not delete its contents. This pane can
              be later added back to the PanedWindow widget by the manage method.

       pathName manage paneName ?option value ...?
              Adds the pane given by paneName back to the PanedWindow widget.  PaneName  must  be
              already  forgotten  by  the  forget  method. Additional option-value pairs, same as
              those accepted by the add method, can  be  given  to  control  the  appearance  and
              position of the pane.

       pathName panecget paneName option
              Returns  the  current value of the configuration option given by option in the pane
              given by paneName. Option may have any of the values accepted  by  the  add  widget
              command.

       pathName paneconfigure paneName ?option? ?value ...?
              When  no  option  is  given,  prints out the values of all options of this pane. If
              option is specified with no value, then the command returns the  current  value  of
              that  option.  If  one  or  more option-value pairs are specified, then the command
              modifies the given pane's option(s) to have the given value(s); in  this  case  the
              command  returns  an  empty  string.  Option may be -min, -max and/or -size, or any
              option accepted by the Tk frame widget. The sizes of the panes may be changed as  a
              result of calling the paneconfigure command.

       pathName panes
              Returns a list of the names of all panes.

       pathName setsize paneName newSize ?direction?
              Sets the size of the pane specified by paneName to newSize. The direction parameter
              specifies in which direction the pane should grow/shrink. Possible values are next:
              the  pane will grow or shrink by moving the boundary between itself and the pane to
              its right or bottom; prev: the pane will grow or  shrink  by  moving  the  boundary
              between itself and the pane to its left or top.

       pathName subwidget name ?args?
              When  no  options are given, 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.

BINDINGS

       The panes' sizes will be changed when the user drags the handles. The change in the panes'
       sizes may be subjected to the -min, -max and -size options of the panes.
