Tk Themed Widget
entrybox - editable text field widget with clear controls
package require Tk 8.6.6
package require matchbox 1.0
The ttk::entrybox widget is an extension of the regular ttk::entry widget. It can be used wherever a ttk::entry is currently used, without any other changes to the code.
The difference between the ttk::entrybox widget and the ttk::entry widget is in the interaction with the user. An empty ttk::entrybox looks just like a ttk::entry. However, when there is any text in the ttk::entrybox, an icon appears on the right-hand side of the widget. The user can click this icon to erase the text.
A ttk::entrybox widget supports the same subcommands as a ttk::entry. As a convenience, one additional subcommand is available:
- pathName set value
- Directly set the value of the ttk::entrybox to value, replacing any existing text.
The ttk::entrybox has one additional key binding, Control-u, that also erases all text in the ttk::entrybox.
