If what you require is a multi-column list widget, then try
MCScrolledListBox widget from the PmwContribD package.

See http://pmwcontribd.sourceforge.net/
and http://sourceforge.net/projects/pmwcontribd/

You need to have Pmw installed to be able to use it.

There is a bug when used with Pmw 1.1 due to a name clash. A simple
workaround is to replace the 2 occurrences of 'vertscrollbar' in
MCScrollListBox.py with a different name e.g. 'mcvertscrollbar'.
