Tk_SetGrid turns on gridded geometry management for
tkwin's toplevel window and specifies the geometry of the
grid. Tk_SetGrid is typically invoked by a widget when
its setGrid option is true. It restricts interactive
resizing of tkwin's toplevel window so that the space
allocated to the toplevel is equal to its requested size
plus or minus even multiples of widthInc and heightInc.
Furthermore, the reqWidth and reqHeight values are passed
to the window manager so that it can report the window's
size in grid units during interactive resizes. If tkwin's
configuration changes (e.g., the size of a grid unit
changes) then the widget should invoke Tk_SetGrid again
with the new information.
Tk_UnsetGrid cancels gridded geometry management for
tkwin's toplevel window.
