4.3. Table of Options for Button-Type Widgets

The Button widgets share almost all of the same options. Table 4-1 shows a complete list of options and which widget they apply to. We'll cover these options in more detail as we explore what Buttons can do.

In the details following Table 4-1, all information applies equally to Buttons, Checkbuttons, and Radiobuttons unless explictly stated otherwise.
