LV 2007-12-18: I was looking at http://extjs.com/ , which provides a JavaScript table with many useful features. One of the features that I particularly liked was how by default, if the user makes a change in a table cell, the widget adds a tic mark indicating that it has been changed. That isn't the only nice feature - but certain one that I found appealing. Does anyone know of a Tk based table widget that provides that sort of functionality built in?
