InputOnly - Create and manipulate TIX InputOnly widgets


$inputonly = $parent->InputOnly(?options?);


Only the following three standard options are supported by InputOnly:

cursor width height

See the ``options'' manual entry for details on the standard options.


InputOnly does not have any widget specific options.


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

InputOnly widgets are not visible to the user. The only purpose of TixInputOnly widgets are to accept inputs from the user, which can be done with the bind command.


The InputOnly command creates a widget object whose name is the same as the path name of the InputOnly's window. This command may be used to invoke various operations on the widget. It has the following general form:

$inputonly->method(?arg arg ...?)

PathName is the name of the command, which is the same as the InputOnly widget's path name. Option and the args determine the exact behavior of the command. The following commands are possible for InputOnly widgets:
Returns the current value of the configuration option given by option. Option may have any of the values accepted by the InputOnly command.
$inputonly->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 $widget (see configure 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 InputOnly command.


InputOnly widgets have no default bindings.
