WHAT IS GRIDPLUS: ==================== GRIDPLUS is a package intended to simplify GUI screen layout development for Tcl/Tk programmers. It is a "Grid" based layout system which builds on, simplifies and extends the existing grid manager. GRIDPLUS layouts are defined as a hierarchy of grids. Each cell in a grid consists of two elements. These will usually be a text label and some other widget such as an entry. It is also allowed to have just one element in a cell, or a cell which is empty. An element or cell can also contain another grid. GRIDPLUS grids can also be stretched to neatly fill the cells in which they are positioned. While the GRIDPLUS grid can be used "native", GRIDPLUS commands/ options exist to create grids of Buttons, Checkbuttons, Date selectors, Dropdowns (Comboboxes), Entries, Menubuttons, Links and Radiobuttons. All places where text can be displayed make use of the TCL message catalogue facility. In effect GRIDPLUS is much more than an alternative to the grid geometry manager, it provides most, if not all, of the facilities required to build complete screens/windows. Although aimed at producing data entry/update/display form screens for database applications, it may be useful for other tasks. GRIDPLUS also includes the following features:- *) Scrollable text widget with support for tags. *) Scrollable tablelist. *) Scrollable tree. *) Calendar style date display/selector. *) Notebook widget. *) Simple drop-down menus. *) Simple method to specify widget traversal order when using the TAB key to navigate the screen. *) A group facility to enable/disable groups of widgets and menu options. *) Facility to include non-GRIDPLUS widgets in groups. *) Simple pattern/procedure based entry validations. *) Works with toplevel windows. *) ...and much, much more!!
