How to change the width and height of the tk_getOpenFile dialog

How to change the width and height of the tk_getOpenFile dialog

How to change the width and height of the tk_getOpenFile dialog


I have a tcltk applications which calls the tk_getOpenFile dialog. However the screen dimensions on the device that I am using are very small so the dialog does not fit on the screen. If I call the dialog and adjust the width and height, then it fits the screen, and any subsequent calls to the dialog will keep the same dimensions.

So my question is, how do I set the dimensions of the tk_getOpenFile dialog box when I start my application?

(With tk_messageBox I can do something similar by adjusting the options database:
option add *Dialog.msg.wrapLength 12c
option add *Dialog.dtl.wrapLength 12c
