This TIP proposes a command to allowing setting of a toplevel's class (especially the main window) after the creation of the window.
Currently there seems to be no way to set the application class of the
WM_CLASS property after the creation of the window. (It is possible to set
the application name using
tk appname <appname>.) It should be possible to
update the application class, e.g. with a command like
tk classname <classname>.
This TIP proposes making the
-class property of toplevels (and frames,
because of shared code) be settable (with the
configure method) after the
widget is created. Note that doing this will not change the value of any
options that have already been looked up (though it will affect future calls
option get), nor will it change the
bindtags of the widget.
Note that setting the class of toplevels is currently possible at widget
creation time. For the main application window, this means passing the
-class option in the arguments processed by
wish or during
package require Tk.
