Tk::Table is an all-perl widget/geometry manager which allows a two dimensional
table of arbitary perl/Tk widgets to be displayed.
Entries in the Table are simply ordinary perl/Tk widgets. They should
be created with the Table as their parent. Widgets are positioned in the
If $widget is not a reference it is treated as a string, and
a Lable widget is created with the string as its text.
All the widgets in each column are set to the same width - the requested
width of the widest widget in the column.
Likewise, all the widgets in each row are set to the same height - the requested
height of the tallest widget in the column.
A number of rows and/or columns can be marked as fixed - and so can serve
as headings for the remainder the rows which are scrollable.
The requested size of the table as a whole is such that the number of rows
specified by -rows (default 10), and number of columns specified by -columns
(default 10) can be displayed.
If the Table is told it can take the keyboard focus then cursor and scroll
keys scroll the displayed widgets.
The Table will create and manage its own scrollbars if requested via
The table can be emptied using
the widgets which were in the table are destroyed.
The Tk::Table widget is derived from a Tk::Frame, so inherits all its
The default focus traversal is giving the focus only to the table
widget as a whole. To enable focus traversal into table cells (e.g. if
there are embedded entry widgets), then the option -takefocus has
to be set to 0.
