COMMAND ENTRIES in menus: enabling and disabling

Posted by Dimon (Dimon), 11 November 2005
The most common kind of menu-bar entry is a command entry. How to change the status of menu's Command entry from 'active' (or 'normal') to 'disabled'?

Posted by admin (Graham Ellis), 13 November 2005
Example ... for a menu named .menuname, you can disable entry number 6 by writing ....

.menuname  entryconfigure  6  -state  disabled

Thank you very much, Graham!
My mistake was the next: I tried to numbering menu items sequentially and mixed. I forgot about each cascade of menu is a separate menu with its own numbering
