• getFont ?-prompt str? ?-sample str? ?-title str? ?-defaut font?
Prompt the user to select a font and a size. The command also displays the
system font panel: fonts are selected in the font panel and echoed in the
dialog. Press the OK button to end up the selection and validate
the choice. The returned value is a font specification (i-e a Tcl
dictionary with name and size keys), or an error if the Cancel button was pressed.
The -prompt option specifies
a text to display at the top of the dialog. If it is not specified, a
default string is used.
The -title option specifies
a title for the dialog. By default, there is no title.
The -sample option specifies a string to
use as sample text. This sample text is displayed using the currently
selected font: each time the user changes the font in the font panel, the
sample field is updated.
The -default option specifies
a default font to display as a suggestion in the dialog. If it is not
specified, the default font preference is used.
