The Tix (Tk Interface Extension) module provides an additional rich
set of widgets. Although the standard Tk library has many useful widgets, they are far from
complete. The Tix library provides most of the commonly needed widgets
that are missing from standard Tk: HList, ComboBox,
Control (a.k.a. SpinBox) and an assortment of scrollable widgets. Tix also includes many more widgets that are generally useful in a wide

choosing the most appropriate widgets to match the special needs of your application and
