BWidget ToolKit 1.9.6 July 2012 Copyright (c) 1998-1999 UNIFIX. Copyright (c) 2001-2002 ActiveState Corp. See the file LICENSE.txt for license info (uses Tcl's BSD-style license). -------------------------------------------------------------------------- Highlights: Bugs fixed in the last year: - listbox selection only redrawn if changed - "entry configure" in themed mode fixed - error if next widget is a ttk widget and has spaces in the window path -------------------------------------------------------------------------- WHAT IS BWIDGET ? The BWidget Toolkit is a high-level Widget Set for Tcl/Tk built using native Tcl/Tk 8.x namespaces. The BWidgets have a professional look&feel as in other well known Toolkits (Tix or Incr Widgets), but the concept is radically different because everything is pure Tcl/Tk. No platform dependencies, and no compiling required. The code is 100% Pure Tcl/Tk. The BWidget library was originally developed by UNIFIX Online, and released under both the GNU Public License and the Tcl license. BWidget is now maintained as a community project, hosted by Sourceforge. Scores of fixes and enhancements have been added by community developers. See the ChangeLog file for details. -------------------------------------------------------------------------- WIDGET LIST (1.9) Simple Widgets Label Extended Label widget Entry Extended Entry widget Button Extended Button widget ArrowButton Button widget with an arrow shape.

No native windows are used on MAC or Windows. IMHO we need native widgets. It is not senseful to use BWidget with Ttk due to different concepts. For the migration of my programs to Ttk, limited Ttk support is integrated in the following widgets: - ScrolledWindow, Label, Button - MainFrame (-sizegrip option) - NoteBook (only user frame) - LabelEntry, LabelFrame, PagesMgr (by Wojciech Kocjan, docs missing?) The documentation pages list the parameter differences. I do not recomment using this for new projects. To activate Ttk support, use: Widget::themed 1 -------------------------------------------------------------------------- DOCUMENTATION HTML manual pages are available in the BWman subdirectory. Point to index.html for frame version with tree navigation, or to contents.html for no frame version. -------------------------------------------------------------------------- CONTACTS The BWidget toolkit is maintained on Sourceforge, at http://www.sourceforge.net/projects/tcllib/ -------------------------------------------------------------------------- Changes: (Only showing changes since BWidget 1.9.5 release.) 2012-04-12 Harald Oehlmann <oehhar@users.sourceforge.net> * listbox.tcl ListBox::selection Only redraw if selection changed. Patch by Wolfgang S. Kechel [Bug 3517145] 2012-04-02 Harald Oehlmann <oehhar@users.sourceforge.net> * entry.tcl, BWMan/entry.tcl checkbox.tcl Themed mode: Invoking "configure" without arguments results in errors that non-ttk options are not present. Removed Entry options: -background -foreground -relief -borderwidth -fg -bg -bd. Reported by Wolfgang S. Kechel [Bug 3513263] * entry.tcl mapped entry option -state to ttk::entry state in themed mode to make state change visible. 2012-03-06 Harald Oehlmann <oehhar@users.sourceforge.net> * BWMan/ListBox.html documented options -selectfill and -autofocus as read-only. Reported by Wolfgang S. Kechel [Bug 3497592] 2011-11-14 Harald Oehlmann <oehhar@users.sourceforge.net> * widget.tcl (Widget::focusOK) fixed list with update. Arises, if a ttk widget with a widget path with spaces is the next widget. Reported by jaspertheperson [Bug 3437761]
