If I understand correctly, you want a two-column widget to show key-value from a map.
Easiest things that come to mind are:
1) use TQTable, probably the quickest way
2) use a TQListView with two columns, also quick quick
You can ofcourse do more fancy stuff with subclassing, but I don't really see a need for this here, as long as my
understanding is correct.
