NAME
       tk_popup - Post a popup menu

SYNOPSIS
       tk_popup menu x y ?entry?
______________________________________________________________________________

DESCRIPTION
       This  procedure posts a menu at a given position on the screen and con-
       figures Tk so that the menu and its cascaded children can be  traversed
       with  the mouse or the keyboard.  Menu is the name of a menu widget and
       x and y are the root coordinates at which  to  display  the  menu.   If
       entry  is  omitted  or an empty string, the menu's upper left corner is
       positioned at the given point.  Otherwise entry gives the index  of  an
       entry  in  menu  and  the  menu will be positioned so that the entry is
       positioned over the given point.

EXAMPLE
       How to attach a simple popup menu to a widget.
              # Create a menu
              set m [menu .popupMenu]
              $m add command -label "Example 1" -command bell
              $m add command -label "Example 2" -command bell

              # Create something to attach it to
              pack [label .l -text "Click me!"]

              # Arrange for the menu to pop up when the label is clicked
              bind .l <1> {tk_popup .popupMenu %X %Y}
