Back in this post, I attempted to make a label look like a button:

Alright, I've learned my lesson - don't use a new widget; modify the
old one.

Except the Entry widget doesn't have a disabledforeground option.
Neither does the Text widget, but IDLE seems to accomplish making a
disabled Text look the same as an enabled Text in the IDLE Help

No, foreground (fg) and background (bg) don't make a difference; it
still changes the color of the Entry widget upon disabling.

There must be something I'm missing here...
