Table widgets are sized according to the value of the following pairs of keywords to WIDGET_TABLE, in order of precedence: SCR_XSIZE/SCR_YSIZE, XSIZE/YSIZE, X_SCROLL_SIZE/Y_SCROLL_SIZE, and VALUE. If either dimension remains unspecified by one of the above keywords, the default value of six (columns or rows) is used when the table is created. If the width or height specified is less than the size of the table, scroll bars are added automatically.

Note: The default row height and column width vary with different user interface toolkits.
