DESCRIPTION

Tree widget uses canvas to display a hierarchical list of items (called nodes). Each node is composed of a label with its own font and foreground attributes, and an optional image or window. Each node can have a list of subnodes, which can be collapsed or expanded. Each node is drawn in a single line, whose height is defined by the deltay option, so they must have at most this height. A node is uniquely identified by a string given at creation (by the insert command). The node named root is the root of the tree and is not drawn. The tree structure is directly maintained by the widget.




WIDGET-SPECIFIC OPTIONS
-closecmd
Specifies a command to be called when user close a node. The closed node is appended to the command.
-deltax
Specifies horizontal indentation between a node and its children.
-deltay
Specifies vertical size of the nodes.
-dragenabled
A boolean specifying if drag is enabled.
-dragendcmd
Specifies a command to be called when drag ended. dragendcmd must be a command conforming to the description of the option dragendcmd of DragSite::register.
-dragevent
Specifies the number of the mouse button associated to the drag. Must be 1, 2 or 3.
-draginitcmd
Tree has a command wrapper for drag-init events. This command refused the drag if no node is designated. In other cases:
If draginitcmd is empty, it returns:
  • the value of option dragtype or TREE_NODE if empty as the data type,
  • {copy move link} as the operations,
  • the node identifier as the data.
If draginitcmd is not empty, it is called with the following arguments:
  • the pathname of the tree,
  • the identifier of the dragged node,
  • the toplevel created to represent dragged data.
and must return a value conforming to draginitcmd option described in DragSite::register.
-dragtype
Specifies an alternate type of dragged object.
-dropcmd
Tree has a command wrapper for drop events. This command stops auto scrolling and extract node and position.
If dropcmd is not empty, it is called with the following arguments:
  • the pathname of the tree,
  • the pathname of the drag source,
  • a list describing where the drop occurs. It can be:
    • {widget},
    • {node node} or
    • {position node index}.
  • the current operation,
  • the data type,
  • the data.
-dropenabled
A boolean specifying if drop is enabled.
-dropovercmd
Tree has a command wrapper for drag-over events. This command enables auto scrolling and position extraction during the drag-over. If dropovercmd is not empty, the command is called with the following aguments:
  • the pathname of the tree,
  • the pathname of the drag source,
  • a list describing where the drop can occur, whose elements are:
    • the string widget if dropovertype option contains w, else empty string.
    • the targeted node if drag icon points a node and dropovertype option contains n, else empty string.
    • a list containing a node and the position within the children of the node where drag icon points to if dropovertype option contains p, else empty string.
    • optionally, the preferred method if drop can occur both inside a node and between two nodes. The value is position or node.
  • the current operation,
  • the data type,
  • the data.
The command must return a list with two elements:
  • the drop status, conforming to those described in dropovercmd option of DropSite::register,
  • the choosen method: widget, node or position.
-dropovermode
Specifies the type of drop-over interaction. Must be a combination of w, which specifies that drop can occurs everywhere on widget, p, which specifies that drop can occurs between two nodes, and n, which specifies that drop occurs inside nodes.
-droptypes
Specifies a list of accepted dropped object/operation. See option droptypes of DropSite::register. for more infromation.
Default is TREE_NODE with operations copy and move.
-height
Specifies the desired height for the tree in units of deltay pixels.
-linesfill
Specifies a foreground color for the lines between nodes.
-linestipple
Specifies a stipple bitmap for the lines between nodes.
-opencmd
Specifies a command to be called when user open a node. The opened node is appended to the command.
-padx
Specifies distance between image or window and text of the nodes.
-redraw
Specifies wether or not the tree should be redrawn when entering idle. Set it to false if you call update while modifying the tree.
-showlines
Specifies whether or not lines should be drawn between nodes.
-width
Specifies the desired width for the tree in units of 8 pixels.


WIDGET COMMAND
pathName bindImage event script
This command associates a command to execute whenever the event sequence given by event occurs on the image of a node. The node idenfier on which the event occurs is appended to the command.
pathName bindText event script
This command associates a command to execute whenever the event sequence given by event occurs on the label of a node. The node idenfier on which the event occurs is appended to the command.
pathName cget option
Returns the current value of the configuration option given by option. Option may have any of the values accepted by the creation command.
pathName closetree node ?recurse?
This command close all the subtree given by node. Recurse through the tree starting at node and set open option to 0 depending on recurse. Default value of recurse is true.
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. 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 creation command. Read-only options are not be modified.
pathName delete ?arg...?
Deletes all nodes (and children of them) in arg. arg can be a list of nodes or a list of list of nodes. To delete all the tree, do $pathName delete [$pathName nodes root].
pathName edit node text ?verifycmd? ?clickres? ?select?
Provides a way for the user to edit in place the label of a node. This is possible only if node is visible (all its parents are open).
The command takes the initial text as argument and does not modify the label of the edited node, but returns an empty string if edition is canceled, or the typed text if edition is accepted.
When editing, the user can cancel by pressing Escape, or accept by pressing Return.
clickres specifies what to do if the user click outside the editable area. If clickres is 0 (the default), the edition is canceled. If clickres is 1, the edition is accepted. In all other case, the edition continues.
If edition is accepted and modifycmd is not empty, then it is called with the new text as argument and must return 1 to accept the new text, 0 to refuse it and continue edition.
select specifies wether or not the initial text should be selected. Default is 1.
pathName exists node
Returns whether or not node exists in the tree.
pathName index node
Returns the position of node in its parent.
pathName insert index parent node ?option value...?
Inserts a new node identified by node in the children list of parent at position index.

-data
User data associated to the node.
-drawcross
Specifies how the cross used to expand or collapse the children of a node should be drawn. Must be one of auto, allways or never.
If auto, the cross is drawn only if the node has children. If allways, the cross is always drawn. If never, the cross is never drawn.
-fill
Specifies the foreground color of the label of the node.
-font
Specifies a font for the label of the node.
-image
Specifies an image to display at the left of the label of the node. window option override image.
-open
Specifies wether or not the children of the node should be drawn.
-text
Specifies the label of the node.
-window
Specifies a pathname to display at the left of the label of the node. window option override image.
pathName itemcget node option
Returns the current value of a configuration option for the item. Option may have any of the values accepted by the item creation command.
pathName itemconfigure node ?option? ?value option value ...?
This command is similar to the configure command, except that it applies to the options for an individual item, whereas configure applies to the options for the widget as a whole. Options may have any of the values accepted by the item creation widget command. If options are specified, options are modified as indicated in the command and the command returns an empty string. If no options are specified, returns a list describing the current options for the item. Read-only options are not be modified.
pathName move parent node index
Moves node to the children list of parent at position index. parent can not be a descendant of node.
pathName nodes node ?first? ?last?
Returns parts of the children of node, following first and last.
If first and last are omitted, returns the list of all children. If first is specified and last omitted, returns the child at index first, or an empty string if first refers to a non-existent element. If first and last are specified, the command returns a list whose elements are all of the children between first and last, inclusive. Both first and last may have any of the standard forms for indices.
pathName opentree node ?recurse?
This command open all the subtree given by node. Recurse through the tree starting at node and set open option to 1 depending on value of recurse. Default value of recurse is true.
