Tk_GetScrollInfo - parse arguments for scrolling commands
Tk_GetScrollInfo(interp, argc, argv, dblPtr, intPtr)
Tcl_Interp *interp (in)
Interpreter to use for error reporting.
int argc (in)
Number of strings in argv array.
char *argv (in)
Argument strings. These represent the entire widget command, of
which the first word is typically the widget name and the second
word is typically xview or yview. This procedure parses
arguments starting with argv.
double *dblPtr (out)
Filled in with fraction from moveto option, if any.
int *intPtr (out)
Filled in with line or page count from scroll option, if any.
The value may be negative.
Tk_GetScrollInfo parses the arguments expected by widget
scrolling commands such as xview and yview.
It receives the entire list of words that make up a widget command
and parses the words starting with argv.
The words starting with argv must have one of the following forms:
scroll number units
scroll number pages
Any of the moveto, scroll, units, and pages
keywords may be abbreviated.
If argv has the moveto form, TK_SCROLL_MOVETO
is returned as result and *dblPtr is filled in with the
fraction argument to the command, which must be a proper real
If argv has the scroll form, TK_SCROLL_UNITS
or TK_SCROLL_PAGES is returned and *intPtr is filled
in with the number value, which must be a proper integer.
If an error occurs in parsing the arguments, TK_SCROLL_ERROR
is returned and an error message is left in interp->result.
