Command-Line Name:-command
Database Name: command
Database Class: Command

A script to evaluate when the widget is invoked.

Command-Line Name:-default
Database Name: default
Database Class: Default

May be set to one of normal, active, or disabled. In a dialog box, one button may be designated the default button (meaning, roughly, the one that gets invoked when the user presses <Enter>"). active indicates that this is currently the default button; normal means that it may become the default button, and disabled means that it is not defaultable. The default is nor-mal. Depending on the theme, the default button may be displayed with an extra highlight ring, or with a different border color. See also: keynav(n).

Command-Line Name:-width
Database Name: width
Database Class: Width

If greater than zero, specifies how much space, in character widths, to allocate for the text label. If less than zero, specifies a minimum width. If zero or unspecified, the natural width of the text label is used. Note that some themes may specify a non-zero -width in the style.

Compatibility Options

May be set to normal or disabled to control the disabled state bit. This is a ‘‘write-only’’ option: setting it changes the widget state, but the state widget command does not affect the state option.
