NAME
       tixGrid - Create and manipulate Tix Grid widgets

STANDARD OPTIONS
       -background     -borderWidth   -cursor
       -font	       -foreground    -height
       -highlightColor -highlightThickness	      -relief

       See the options manual entry for details on the standard options.

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 param-
       eters:  x y, where (x,y) is the location of the cell that has just been edited.	[-editno-
       tifycmd 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.  [-for-
       matcmd 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.	[-select-
       mode 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 topMar-
       gin]  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 com-
       mand 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 con-
       tain 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  speci-
	      fied,  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 spec-
	      ified  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 speci-
	      fied, 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 speci-
	      fied, 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 format
	      TODO place holder

       pathName index
	      TODO place holder

       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 spec-
	      ify 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 corre-
       sponding 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.

       pathName xview
	      TODO place holder

       pathName yview
	      TODO place holder
