Arguments

widget

The widget this applies to

...

Handled via .Tcl.args

Details

There are far too many of these commands to describe them and their arguments in full. Please refer to the Tcl/Tk documentation for details. Except for a few exceptions, the pattern is that Tcl widget commands possibly with subcommands like .a.b selection clear are converted to function names like tkselection.clear and the widget is given as the first argument.
