WIDGET-SPECIFIC OPTIONS

       [-editdonecmd editDoneCmd]  If non-empty, gives a Tcl command to be executed when the user
       has edited grid cell. When this command is  called,  it  is  passed  with  two  additional
       parameters:  x  y,  where  (x,y)  is  the  location of the cell that has just been edited.
       [-editnotifycmd editNotifyCmd] If non-empty, gives a Tcl command to be executed  when  the
       user  tries  to  edit  a  grid  cell.  When  this command is called, it is passed with two
       additional parameters: x y, where (x,y,) is the location of the cell. This command  should
       return  a  boolean  value:  true indicates that the cells is editable and false otherwise.
       [-formatcmd formatCmd] If non-empty, gives a Tcl command to  be  executed  when  the  grid
       cells  need  to be formatted on the screen. Normally, this command calls the format widget
       command (see below). When this command is  called,  it  is  passed  with  five  additional
       parameters:  type  x1  y1 x2 y2. type gives the logical type of the region in the grid. It
       may be one of the following. x-region:  the  horizontal  margin;  y-region:  the  vertical
       margin; s-region, the area where the the horizontal and vertical margins are joined; main:
       all the cells that do not fall into the above three types.  x1 y1 x2 y2 gives  the  extent
       of  the  region  that  needs formatting.  [-leftmargin leftMargin] In the number of cells,
       gives the width of vertical margin. A zero indicates that no  vertical  should  be  drawn.
       [-selectmode selectMode]  Specifies  one of several styles for manipulating the selection.
       The value of the option may be arbitrary, but the default bindings expect it to be  either
       single,    browse,    multiple,    or    extended;    the   default   value   is   single.
       [-selectunit selectUnit] Specifies the selection unit. Valid values are  cell,  column  or
       row.   [-topmargin topMargin]  In  the  number  of  cells,  gives the height of horizontal
       margin. A zero indicates that no horizontal should be drawn.

DESCRIPTION

       The tixGrid command creates a new window (given by the pathName  argument)  and  makes  it
       into  a  tixGrid  widget.   Additional  options,  described above, may be specified on the
       command line or in the option database to configure aspects of the tixGrid widget such  as
       its cursor and relief.

       A  Grid  widget  displays  its  contents in a two dimensional grid of cells. Each cell may
       contain one Tix display item, which may be in text, graphics or  other  formats.  See  the
       tixDisplayStyle  manual  page  for  more  information  about Tix display items. Individual
       cells, or groups of cells, can be formatted with a wide range of attributes, such  as  its
       color, relief and border.

WIDGET COMMAND

       The  tixGrid  command creates a new Tcl command whose name is the same as the path name of
       the tixGrid widget's window. This command may be used to invoke various operations on  the
       widget. It has the following general form:
              pathName option ?arg arg ...?
       PathName  is the name of the command, which is the same as the tixGrid widget's path name.
       Option and the args determine the exact behavior of the command.  The  following  commands
       are possible for tixGrid widgets:

       pathName anchor option ?args ...?
              Manipulates  the  anchor  cell of the tixGrid widget. The anchor cell is the end of
              the selection that is fixed while the user is dragging out  a  selection  with  the
              mouse.

       pathName bdtype
              TODO place holder

       pathName cget option
              Returns  the  current value of the configuration option given by option. Option may
              have any of the values accepted by the tixGrid command.

       pathName configure ?option? ?value option value ...?
              Query or modify  the  configuration  options  of  the  widget.   If  no  option  is
              specified, returns a list describing all of the available options for pathName (see
              Tk_ConfigureInfo(n) for information on the format  of  this  list.)  If  option  is
              specified  with  no value, then the command returns a list describing the one named
              option (this list will be identical to  the  corresponding  sublist  of  the  value
              returned  if  no  option  is  specified).  If  one  or  more option-value pairs are
              specified, then the command modifies the given widget option(s) to have  the  given
              value(s);  in this case the command returns an empty string. Option may have any of
              the values accepted by the tixGrid command.

       pathName delete dim from ?to?
              Dim may be row or column. If to is not given, deletes a single row (or  column)  at
              the  position  from.  If  to  is given, deletes the range of rows (or columns) from
              position from through to.

       pathName edit apply
              If any cell is being edited, de-highlight the cell and applies the changes.

       pathName edit set x y
              Highlights the cell at (x,y) for editing, if the -editnotify command  returns  true
              for this cell.

       pathName entrycget x y option
              Returns  the  current value of the configuration option given by option of the cell
              at (x,y). Option may have any of the values accepted by the set widget command.

       pathName entryconfigure x y ?option? ?value option value ...?
              Query or modify the configuration options of the cell at (x,y).  If  no  option  is
              specified, returns a list describing all of the available options for the cell (see
              Tk_ConfigureInfo(n) for information on the format of  this  list.)   If  option  is
              specified  with  no value, then the command returns a list describing the one named
              option (this list will be identical to  the  corresponding  sublist  of  the  value
              returned  if  no  option  is  specified.)  If  one  or  more option-value pairs are
              specified, then the command modifies the given widget option(s) to have  the  given
              value(s); in this case the command returns an empty string.  Option may have any of
              the values accepted by the set widget command.

       pathName index

       pathName move dim from to offset
              Dim may be row or column. Moves the the range of rows (or  columns)  from  position
              from  through  to  by the distance indicated by offset. For example, move row 2 4 1
              moves the rows 2,3,4 to rows 3,4,5.

       pathName set x y ?-itemtype type? ?option value...?
              Creates a new display item at the cell at (x,y). The optional  -itemtype  parameter
              gives  the  type  of  the  display  item.  An additional list of option-value pairs
              specify options of the display item. If a display item already exists at this cell,
              the old item will be deleted automatically.

       pathName size dim index ?option value ...?
              Queries  or  sets  the size of the row or column given by dim and index. Dim may be
              row or column.  Index may be any non-negative integer that gives the position of  a
              given  row  (or  column).  Index can also be the string default; in this case, this
              command queries or sets the default size of all rows (or columns).

       When no option-value pair is given, this command returns a  list  containing  the  current
       size  setting  of  the  given  row  (or  column).  When  option-value pairs are given, the
       corresponding options of the size setting of the given row are changed. Option may be  one
       of the follwing:

              -pad0 pixels
                     Specifies the paddings to the left or a column or the top of a row.

              -pad1 pixels
                     Specifies the paddings to the right or a column or the bottom of a row.

              -size val
                     Specifies  the width of a column or the height of a row. Val may be: auto --
                     the width of the column is set the the widest cell in the column; a valid Tk
                     screen  distance  unit  (see Tk_GetPixels(n)); or a real number following by
                     the word chars (e.g. 3.4chars) that sets the width  of  the  column  to  the
                     given number of characters.

       pathName unset x y
              Clears the cell at (x,y) by removing its display item.
