A Message Widget's Arguments

The message 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 message widgets:

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 message command.
