( #3333=superdoc: print w/ replies, xml ) Need Help??
Hi everyone ,

I urgently require some suggestions regarding formatting of text in perl tk's text widget. Can we create a table within the tk widget to display data ..???? I know this may sound silly but my actual problem is displaying text in the widget in a very organized manner.
My problem can be broadly viewed as :
1. Display text in a table format ( multiple rows, 4 columns ). I use the command  $txt->insert('end', "ABC\t\tBCN\t\tNN\t\tARCFN\n");
However, the major limitation for this format is the string size. As soon as the string length for for any of the first three strings exceeds a certain length, the tab spacing is increased making the entry look weird. Is there a better way to do this ??? Thanks ..

I want to have something like :

ABC   NACA   AFASFA  AAA
ABC   NACA   AFASFA   AAA


As soon as the string size increases, the pattern looks something like this

ABC   NACA   AFASFA   AAA
ABCASDA     NACA     AFASFA     AAA
AS   NACA   AFASFA   AAA


Please help ,...1!!
