DESCRIPTION

       The  dateentry  command creates a quicken style date entry
       field with a popup calendar by combining the datefield and
       calendar  widgets  together.   This allows a user to enter
       the date via the  keyboard  or  by  using  the  mouse  and
       selecting the calendar icon which brings up a popup calen­
       dar.




METHODS

       The dateentry command creates a new Tcl command whose name
       is  pathName.   This command may be used to invoke various
       operations on the widget.  It has  the  following  general
       form:

              pathName option ?arg arg ...?

       Option  and  the  args determine the exact behavior of the
       command.  The following commands are possible for  dateen­
       try widgets:


INHERITED METHODS

       ciated methods.


WIDGET-SPECIFIC METHODS

       pathName cget option
              Returns the  current  value  of  the  configuration
              option given by option.  Option may have any of the
              values accepted by the dateentry command.

       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  path­
              Name  (see  Tk_ConfigureInfo for information on the
              format of this list).  If option is specified  with
              no  value, then the command returns a list describ­
              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 dateentry command.
