At least among the 'standard' Tk widgets, there is no such widget.

There are some extensions for Tk, but I doubt that you will find
such a widget. Normally, Tk widgets are very 'basic' (maybe the
file dialogs are an exception to this rule) but nevertheless quite
powerful (see e.g. the Text widget). 

I think, you have to write such a widget yourself (which is in fact
not so difficult - except for the 'adjustment of the column width').
