WHAT IS GRIDPLUS: ==================== GRIDPLUS is a "Grid" based GUI builder 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. 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 containing a mixture 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 fact 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. In many cases, using GRIDPLUS to code an application GUI will be quicker than using a "Visual" screen design tool. Examples can be found at:- http://www.satisoft.com/tcltk/gridplus2/examples.html 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 widget. *) Calendar style date display selector. *) Basic notebook type 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!!
