A Menubutton Widget's Arguments

The menubutton command creates a new Tcl command whose name is pathName. This command may be used to invoke various operations on the widget. It has the following general form:

 
pathName option ?arg arg ...?

Option and the args determine the exact behavior of the command. The following commands are possible for menubutton widgets:

pathName :activate
Change the menu button's state to active and redisplay the menu button using its active foreground and background colors instead of normal colors. The command returns an empty string. This command is ignored if the menu button's state is disabled. This command is obsolete and will eventually be removed; use "pathName :configure :state active" instead.
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 menubutton command.
pathName :deactivate
Change the menu button's state to normal and redisplay the menu button using its normal foreground and background colors. The command returns an empty string. This command is ignored if the menu button's state is disabled. This command is obsolete and will eventually be removed; use "pathName :configure :state normal" instead.
