       ttk::scrollbar - Control the viewport of a scrollable widget


       ttk::scrollbar pathName ?options...?


       ttk::scrollbar  widgets  are  typically  linked  to  an  associated window that displays a
       document of some sort, such as a file being edited or a drawing.  A scrollbar  displays  a
       thumb in the middle portion of the scrollbar, whose position and size provides information
       about the portion of the document visible in the associated  window.   The  thumb  may  be
       dragged  by  the  user to control the visible region.  Depending on the theme, two or more
       arrow buttons may also be present; these are used to scroll the visible region in discrete


       -class                -cursor              -style

       See the ttk_widget manual entry for details on the standard options.


       Command-Line Name:-command
       Database Name:  command
       Database Class: Command

              A  Tcl  script  prefix to evaluate to change the view in the widget associated with
              the scrollbar.  Additional arguments are appended to the value of this  option,  as
              described  in SCROLLING COMMANDS below, whenever the user requests a view change by
              manipulating the scrollbar.

              This option typically consists of a two-element list,  containing  the  name  of  a
              scrollable  widget  followed  by  either xview (for horizontal scrollbars) or yview
              (for vertical scrollbars).

       Command-Line Name:-orient
       Database Name:  orient
       Database Class: Orient

              One of horizontal or vertical.  Specifies the orientation of the scrollbar.


       pathName cget option
              Returns the current value of the specified option; see ttk::widget(3tk).

       pathName configure ?option? ?value option value ...?
              Modify or query widget options; see ttk::widget(3tk).

       pathName get
              Returns the scrollbar settings in the  form  of  a  list  whose  elements  are  the
              arguments to the most recent set widget command.

       pathName identify x y
              Returns the name of the element at position x, y.  See ttk::widget(3tk).

       pathName instate statespec ?script?
              Test the widget state; see ttk::widget(3tk).

       pathName set first last
              This  command  is  normally  invoked  by  the scrollbar's associated widget from an
              -xscrollcommand or -yscrollcommand callback.  Specifies the  visible  range  to  be
              displayed.  first and last are real fractions between 0 and 1.

       pathName state ?stateSpec?
              Modify or query the widget state; see ttk::widget(3tk).


       The following widget commands are used internally by the TScrollbar widget class bindings.

       pathName delta deltaX deltaY
              Returns  a  real  number  indicating the fractional change in the scrollbar setting
              that corresponds to a  given  change  in  thumb  position.   For  example,  if  the
              scrollbar  is  horizontal, the result indicates how much the scrollbar setting must
              change to move the thumb deltaX pixels to the right  (deltaY  is  ignored  in  this
              case).   If  the scrollbar is vertical, the result indicates how much the scrollbar
              setting must change to move the thumb deltaY pixels down.  The  arguments  and  the
              result may be zero or negative.

       pathName fraction x y
              Returns  a  real number between 0 and 1 indicating where the point given by x and y
              lies in the trough area of the scrollbar, where 0.0 corresponds to the top or  left
              of  the  trough  and  1.0  corresponds  to  the bottom or right.  X and y are pixel
              coordinates relative to the scrollbar widget.  If x and y refer to a point  outside
              the trough, the closest point in the trough is used.


       When  the  user  interacts  with  the  scrollbar,  for  example by dragging the thumb, the
       scrollbar notifies the associated widget that it must  change  its  view.   The  scrollbar
       makes the notification by evaluating a Tcl command generated from the scrollbar's -command
       option.  The command may take any of the following forms.  In each  case,  prefix  is  the
       contents of the -command option, which usually has a form like .t yview

       prefix moveto fraction
              Fraction  is  a  real number between 0 and 1.  The widget should adjust its view so
              that the point given by fraction appears  at  the  beginning  of  the  widget.   If
              fraction is 0 it refers to the beginning of the document.  1.0 refers to the end of
              the document, 0.333 refers to a point one-third of the way  through  the  document,
              and so on.

       prefix scroll number units
              The  widget  should  adjust  its  view  by  number units.  The units are defined in
              whatever way makes sense for the widget, such as characters  or  lines  in  a  text
              widget.  Number is either 1, which means one unit should scroll off the top or left
              of the window, or -1, which means that one unit should scroll  off  the  bottom  or
              right of the window.

       prefix scroll number pages
              The  widget  should  adjust  its  view  by number pages.  It is up to the widget to
              define the meaning of a page;  typically it is slightly less than what fits in  the
              window, so that there is a slight overlap between the old and new views.  Number is
              either 1, which means the next page should become visible, or -1, which means  that
              the previous page should become visible.


       The scrollbar automatically sets the disabled state bit.  when the entire range is visible
       (range is 0.0 to 1.0), and clears it otherwise.  It also sets the active and pressed state
       flags of individual elements, based on the position and state of the mouse pointer.
