DESCRIPTION

ListBox widget uses canvas to display a list of items. Each item is composed of a label with its own font and foreground attributes, and an optional image or window. Each item is drawn in a single line, whose height is defined by the deltay option, so they must have at most this height. A item is uniquely identified by a string given at creation (by the insert command). The ListBox can have one or more columns, depending on multicolumn option. The user do not handle columns; the number of columns is determined following the height of the ListBox in order to see each item vertically.
