NAME

       tixPopupMenu - Create and manipulate tixPopupMenu widgets

SYNOPSIS

       tixPopupMenu pathName ?options?

SUPER-CLASS

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

STANDARD OPTIONS

       The PopupMenu 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

       [-buttons buttons]  A Tcl list that specifies the mouse button(s) and key modifier(s) that
       bring up the popup menu. Each element of this list is in turn a  list  that  contains  two
       elements:  the  first element is an integer that indicates the mouse button that brings up
       the popup menu; the second element specifies the key modifiers  that  should  be  used  in
       conjunction  with  the mouse button. For example, the value {{1 {Control Meta}} {3 {Any}}}
       specifies that the popup menu can be popped up by (a) pressing mouse button 1 with  either
       the  Control  or  the  Meta  key or (b) pressing mouse button 3 with any key modifier. The
       default  value  is  {{3  {Any}}}:  only  mouse  button  3  brings  up  the   popup   menu.
       [-postcmd postCmd]  Specifies  a  command to be evaluated just before the menu is about to
       pop-up. This command is called with two default arguments: the root x-y coordinates  where
       the  user  has pressed the mouse button. This command must return a boolean value: a false
       indicates that the menu shouldn't be popped up at this point; a true  indicates  that  the
       menu  should  be popped up. This option can be used to find out where the user has pressed
       the mouse-button and  optionally  disable  the  popup  menu  over  certain  screen  areas.
       [-spring spring]  When set to true, the menu will be automatically popped down if the user
       releases the mouse button outside of the menu and no menu commands will be  invoked.  This
       makes  it  easy for the user to cancel the popup menu without pressing the Escape key. The
       default value is true.  [-state state] Must be either disabled or  normal.  The  PopupMenu
       widget  will  not  pop  up unless its -state is set to normal.  [-title title] Specifies a
       text string to display inside the menubutton subwidget, as the title of this PopupMenu.

SUBWIDGETS

       Name:          menu
       Class:         Menu

              The menu subwidget.

       Name:          menubutton
       Class:         Menubutton

              The menubutton subwidget.

DESCRIPTION

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

       The  Tix  PopupMenu  widget  can  be  used  as  a replacement of the tk_popup command. The
       advantage of the Tix PopupMenu widget is it requires less application code to  manipulate.
       Also, it provides a title for the popup menu, which is not available from tk_popup.

WIDGET COMMANDS

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

       pathName bind widget ?widget ...?
              Binds  this  PopupMenu to one or more widgets. The PopupMenu will be activated when
              the user presses the right mouse button over these 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 tixPopupMenu 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 tixPopupMenu command.

       pathName post widget x y
              Posts the PopupMenu inside the widget at the coordinate x,y.

       pathName unbind widget ?widget ...?
              Cancels the PopupMenu's binding with the widget(s).

       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.
