kroc 1 July 2003 - The idea is to write a table to explain which commands you can use with grid, pack and place for a wanted result. The purpose of this table is not to supply ready to use code but to compare the various existing methods. It can be also used as a syntax reminder.
$w1, $w2, ... $wN are simple widgets set like that:
set w1 [button $container.b1 -text "button 1" -command ...]
place commands assume you've already set the container size.
pack $w1 $w2 -side left
grid $w1 $w2
place $w1 -relx 0 -y 0 -relwidth .5 -relheight 1 place $w2 -relx .5 -y 0 -relwidth .5 -relheight 1
pack $w1 $w2 -side top
grid $w1 grid $w2
place $w1 -rely 0 -x 0 -relwidth 1 -relheight .5 place $w2 -rely .5 -x 0 -relwidth 1 -relheight .5
