Sourceforge seems to be down so just for the heck of it here is another 
example (going a bit OT) of fields with the matrix, validation, 
radio/check, and observable features.

The output of the program, after entering data as shown in the attached 
PNG, is as follows:

$ ruby ship-fields.rb
[#<Ship foo, sailboat, (1.0,2.0), enabled=false>, #<Ship bar, speedboat, 
(3.0,4.0), enabled=true>]

The full program is attached, but this is the heart of it:

matrix = FXMatrix.new(self, 8,

# The %| character separates fields into different cells of the matrix.
   " %| name %| x %| y %| speedboat %| sailboat %| steamer %| enabled")
   # this just adds some header labels

ships = [Ship.new, Ship.new]
ships.each_with_index do |ship, i|
   f = field(matrix, "#{i} %| %s %| %6.2f %| %6.2f %| %r %| %r %| %r %| %v",
     # %r is radio, %v is check
     [ship, :name],
     [ship, :x],
     [ship, :y],
     [[ship, :kind], "speedboat"],
     [[ship, :kind], "sailboat"],
     [[ship, :kind], "steamer"],
     [ship, :enabled]
   f.valid([ship, :x]) {|x| x >= 0 and x < 100}
   f.valid([ship, :y]) {|y| y >= 0 and y < 100}
