NAME

ttk::panedwindow - Multi-pane container window

SYNOPSIS

ttk::panedwindow pathname ?options?
pathname add window ?options...?
pathname insert index window ?options...?

DESCRIPTION

A ttk::panedwindow widget displays a number of subwindows, stacked either vertically or horizontally. The user may adjust the relative sizes of the subwindows by dragging the sash between panes.

STANDARD OPTIONS

-class, undefined, undefined
-cursor, cursor, Cursor
-style, style, Style
-takefocus, takeFocus, TakeFocus

WIDGET-SPECIFIC OPTIONS

Command-Line Name: -orient
Database Name: orient
Database Class: Orient
Specifies the orientation of the window. If vertical, subpanes are stacked top-to-bottom; if horizontal, subpanes are stacked left-to-right.

Command-Line Name: -width
Database Name: width
Database Class: Width
If present and greater than zero, specifies the desired width of the widget in pixels. Otherwise, the requested width is determined by the width of the managed windows.

Command-Line Name: -height
Database Name: height
Database Class: Height
If present and greater than zero, specifies the desired height of the widget in pixels. Otherwise, the requested height is determined by the height of the managed windows.

PANE OPTIONS

The following options may be specified for each pane:
Command-Line Name: -weight
Database Name: weight
Database Class: Weight
An integer specifying the relative stretchability of the pane. When the paned window is resized, the extra space is added or subtracted to each pane proportionally to its -weight.

WIDGET COMMAND

Supports the standard configure, cget, state, and instate commands; see ttk::widget(n) for details. Additional commands:

pathname add subwindow options...
Adds a new pane to the window. See PANE OPTIONS for the list of available options.

pathname forget pane
Removes the specified subpane from the widget. pane is either an integer index or the name of a managed subwindow.

pathname identify component x y
Returns the name of the element under the point given by x and y, or the empty string if no component is present at that location. If component is omitted, it defaults to sash. The following subcommands are supported:

pathname identify element x y
Returns the name of the element at the specified location.

pathname identify sash x y
Returns the index of the sash at the specified location.

pathname insert pos subwindow options...
Inserts a pane at the specified position. pos is either the string end, an integer index, or the name of a managed subwindow. If subwindow is already managed by the paned window, moves it to the specified position. See PANE OPTIONS for the list of available options.

pathname pane pane -option ?value ?-option value...
Query or modify the options of the specified pane, where pane is either an integer index or the name of a managed subwindow. If no -option is specified, returns a dictionary of the pane option values. If one -option is specified, returns the value of that option. Otherwise, sets the -options to the corresponding values.

pathname panes
Returns the list of all windows managed by the widget.

pathname sashpos index ?newpos?
If newpos is specified, sets the position of sash number index. May adjust the positions of adjacent sashes to ensure that positions are monotonically increasing. Sash positions are further constrained to be between 0 and the total size of the widget. Returns the new position of sash number index.

VIRTUAL EVENTS

The panedwindow widget generates an <<EnteredChild>> virtual event on LeaveNotify/NotifyInferior events, because Tk does not execute binding scripts for <Leave> events when the pointer crosses from a parent to a child. The panedwindow widget needs to know when that happens.
