Node:entry, Next:, Previous:radiobutton, Up:Widget Creation


An entry widget allows input of a one line string. An example of an entry widget:

label .l -text "Enter your name"
entry .e -width 40 -textvariable your_name

would display a label widget named .l showing the string Enter your name and an entry widget named .e of width 40 characters. The value of variable your_name will reflect the string in the entry widget: as the entry widget string is updated, so is the value of the variable. Similarly, changing the value of your_name in a Tcl script will change the string displayed in the entry field.
