Scaled Radiobutton

Current Version: 1.2

bll 2018-8-16: A scalable radio button. It does not attempt to match the styling that the various available styles use. State handling is minimal.

There are 8 different indicator styles.

If you know of other unicode character pairs that will work as indicators, let me know.

Note that some fonts may have different sizes of characters, which may cause your text to shift when the checkbutton is pressed. Try a different display pair, or try a different font. I found that 'Liberation Sans' did not work that well, and 'DejaVu Sans' is much better.

Unfortunately, the Windows standard font, Arial (and Tk seems to use 'Segoe UI') do not have good unicode characters. So, far, Droid Sans, Lucida Sans Unicode, Segoe UI Symbol seem to be ok. 'Segoe UI Symbol' seems like a good choice. Available since Windows 7. Haven't found a great choice for XP or Vista.
