DESCRIPTION

       The fileselectiondialog command creates a  file  selection
       dialog similar to the OSF/Motif standard composite widget.
       The fileselectiondialog is derived from the  Dialog  class
       and  is composed of a FileSelectionBox with attributes set
       to manipulate the dialog buttons.



METHODS

       The fileselectiondialog 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  fol­
       lowing general form:

              pathName option ?arg arg ...?

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


ASSOCIATED METHODS

       See  the "fileselectionbox" class manual entry for details
       on the associated methods.


INHERITED METHODS

       add             buttonconfigure                defaulthide
       insert          invoke         show

       See the "buttonbox" widget manual entry for details on the
       above inherited methods.

       activate        center         deactivate
       above inherited 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 fileselectiondialog 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
              ing the one named option (this list will be identi­
              cal 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 fileselectiondialog com­
              mand.
