Useful Tk Widgets is a guide to available Tk widgets that are not distributed with Tk.

This is not a place for stand-alone Tk applications - that would be a page like Tk Programs or Tk examples. This is only for widgets - whether individual ones, packaged on the internet or code listed here on the wiki.

This is for Tk-based widgets, not widgets based on other toolkits.
