dgw::sfinddialog - is a toplevel search dialog to perform a text search in other widgets. As such functionality is mostly required for the Tk text widget, a implementation to search a Tk text widget is embedded within the 'sfinddialog' widget. The buttons and the text entry are exposed to the programmer, so the programmer has for instance the possibility to manually insert a value in the search entry or to click invoke a button click programmatically.
