The label command creates a new window (given by the pathName argument) and makes it into a label widget. Additional options, described above, may be specified on the command line or in the option database to configure aspects of the label such as its colors, font, text, and initial relief. The label command returns its pathName argument. At the time this command is invoked, there must not exist a window named pathName, but pathName's parent must exist.
A label is a widget that displays a textual string, bitmap or image. If text is displayed, it must all be in a single font, but it can occupy multiple lines on the screen (if it contains newlines or if wrapping occurs because of the wrapLength option) and one of the characters may optionally be underlined using the underline option. The label can be manipulated in a few simple ways, such as changing its relief or text, using the commands described below.
The label 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 label widgets:
When a new label is created, it has no default event bindings: labels are not intended to be interactive.
