A ttk::spinbox widget is a ttk::entry widget with built-in up and down buttons that are used to either modify a numeric value or to select among a set of values. The widget implements all the features of the ttk::entry widget including support of the -textvariable option to link the value displayed by the widget to a Tcl variable.

The class name for a ttk::spinbox is TSpinbox. Dynamic states: active, disabled, focus, readonly. TSpinbox styling options configurable with ttk::style are: -arrowcolor color -arrowsize amount -background color For backwards compatibility, when using the aqua theme (for macOS), this option behaves as an alias for the -fieldbackground provided that no value is specified for -fieldbackground. Otherwise it is ignored. -bordercolor color -darkcolor color -fieldbackground color -foreground color -insertcolor color -insertwidth amount -lightcolor color -padding padding -selectbackground color -selectforeground color Some options are only available for specific themes. See the ttk::style manual page for information on how to configure ttk styles.
