GRIDPLUS 2.6 has been released and is available from:

New and Enhanced Features
*) New single/space action for tree command mode.
*) New ISO date validation.

Bug Fixes
*) Fix problem with containers on Unix.


GRIDPLUS is a package intended to simplify GUI screen layout
development for Tcl/Tk programmers. It is a "Grid" based layout
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
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

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 (Tile).
*) Calendar style date display/selector.
