Abstract

This TIP is to allow custom sizing of menubutton indicators using -indwidth and -indheight as options.

Rationale

Currently there is no way to vary the size of the indicator for a classic Unix menubutton widget. Adding the ability to control this via configuration options will give the coder more control over a GUI's appearance for when such fine control is required.

Specification

The following options are proposed to be added to the ::menubutton widget:

The -indwidth option allows the specification of the width of the indicator in 10ths of a mm (will be converted to an integer number of pixels).

The -indheight option allows the specification of the height of the indicator in 10ths of a mm (will be converted to an integer number of pixels).

Implementation

A patch exists in SourceForge (Feature Request 2996760 [1]).
