This TIP is to allow right and center justification of listboxes using -justify as an option.


Sometimes a listbox needs right or center justification for the right visual effect. For example lists of numbers, particularly money amounts, look better right justified. Currently, only left justification is possible.


It is proposed that a -justify option be added to the ::listbox widget, which may be left, right, or center to allow different justifications. The default setting will be left.


A patch exists in SourceForge (FRQ 2996762 ).
