country_widget (public, deprecated)

 country_widget [ default ] [ select_name ] [ size_subtag ]

Defined in packages/acs-tcl/tcl/widgets-procs.tcl

Deprecated. Invoking this procedure generates a warning.

Returns a country selection box. This widget depends on the ref-countries package. DEPRECATED for various reasons: doesn't comply with OpenACS naming convention, difficult to style, no good separation of Tcl and HTML, 'size_subtag' is just implemented code injection and furthermore, default value might depend on a parameter designed just for "american readers". A better alternative would be e.g. implementing this using the templating system.

default (optional)
select_name (defaults to "country_code")
size_subtag (defaults to "size='4'")
