Label class options
Label class options apply to widgets created with
the following SCO Visual Tcl commands:
The following label class options are available:
-label string (CSG)
Specifies the string to be displayed in the widget.
-labelCenter boolean (CS)
Centers the label within the widget.
-labelLeft boolean (CS)
Left-aligns the label within the widget.
-labelRight boolean (CS)
Right-aligns the label within the widget.
-pixmap filename (CS)
Sets the pixmap to use in a Label or subclass of a Label. If you
specify this without specifying insensitivePixmap or
armedPixmap, those two pixmaps will be automatically
generated for you.
-recomputeSize boolean (CS)
Sets whether the widget shrinks or expands to
accommodate its content (label or pixmap)
(Graphical only). The default is ``True''.
If ``True'', the widget shrinks or
expands to exactly fit the label string
or pixmap. If ``False'',
the widget never attempts to change size on its own.
If a label that is going to have several different
length strings displayed in it, you may want to use the
-recomputeSize FALSE command. This
ensures that the label does not resize every time a
different length string is displayed. If you allow the
label to resize, the form will also resize around it unless
you specified the -resizable FALSE
option on your form. When you use -recomputeSize
FALSE on your label, make sure that your
label is the size you want it to be when it is created. You
can do this with attachments to the form or other
widgets, or you can specify the width of the label.
